Words to remember and live by

Father Nicholas

Once again Jesus took the twelve disciples aside and spoke of the things that were to happen to him.

“Listen” he told them, “we are going up to Jerusalem where the Son of Man will be handed over

to the chief priest  and the teachers of the Law. They will condemn him to death and then hand him

over to the Gentiles, who will Make fun of him, spit on him whip him, and  kill him; but three days

later he will rise to life.” (Mark 32-34)

Καλή καί Αγία τήν Αγία καί Μεγαλη Τεσσαρακοστή    Σάς Ευχομαι aγαπητοί εν Χριστώ αδελφοί. Τόν αγώνα τόν πνευματικό νά αγωνιζεσθε. Μέ πιστη καί ευλάβεια νά προσευχόσαστε. Καί πάντοτες παρακαλώτας τόν Κύριο νά σάς ενδυναμώνη είς τό πευματικό σας αγώνα τής Αγίας αυτής περιόδου, τής αγίας καί Μεγάλης Τεσσαρακοστής.
