Schedule of Services for the Feast of the Holy Cross (9/27-9/29)

September 2, 2014 - Fr. Moses Samaan



Tomorrow, as our society celebrates Halloween, Coptic Orthodox Christians will be celebrating the monthly commemoration of the Most Holy Theotokos Mary. In the Protoevangelion of Gen. 3:15, she is the woman whose Seed will bruise the head of the serpent. As we know, our Savior fulfilled this in His life-giving ministry and sacrifice on the Cross whereby He destroyed the power of death and the devil over mankind.

Prayer Requests

The faithful, as soon as they wake and are risen, before they betake themselves to their work shall pray to God, and so let them hurry to their work. But if there should be instruction in the word, he shall put this first, to go and hear the word of God for the strengthening of his soul. And they shall be zealous to go too the assembly where the Spirit abounds.

— St. Hippolytus of Rome, Apostolic Tradition 3:31
