“All things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so for them” (Matthew 7:12)

The virtuous and most valuable price a person sacrifice for a love of God and brotherhood, is loving others from the heart as much as oneself and doing whatsoever for others just as oneself. Humans have the tendency of seeking basic need as well as providing their daily bread and fulfilling routines. Yet, we must crave for others vitality indeed for the love of neighbors. Loving from the heart is to desire others welfare, safety, nurture and amity.  This is thru sharing our sustenance, attire, grief or fiesta.


Caladrius is a white bird and is known by patristic fathers. The nature of this bird is unique in its features. Elders search for it with effort and save it. If there is a sick person, they offer it. He stares at the patient, if he is incurable and close to death, he turns his face away, but if it is still day, he opens his mouth and takes his breath from the patient’s mouth.

The man gets well, the bird gets sick. His white face turns black as coal, when he feels pain he leaps into the air and when he is sick he throws himself into the sea. After spending 3 days and 3 nights in the sea, he gets rid of his body and comes out as a new one, saved, renewed and powerful. This creation in the day. God made Thursday. If they ask why they created it, Holy Trinity gave this bird the power to save and created it as an example for those who do not believe in the death and resurrection of God the Son.

Mystery of Incarnation

Dear Children of God! how are you? How was feast of Easter (resurrection)? We assume you had a joyful holiday! How is school and your life at home with your family? Hope you have become good children to your parents and brave students at school. It is always important to remember the value of having proper discipline and character so that we could be good children of God, to be given a life full of peace, love and happiness.

Children, the life that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave us is filled with true love, peace and joy. If we could be aware (know) and understand His way of salvation which is known as “Mystery of Incarnation,” we would be saved from all the problems and suffering that our enemy Satan brings upon us. Our Lord died for us because He loved us dearly (so much). He was crucified on the cross, on the sixth day known as “Arebe” locally, and buried. But then, He rise on the third day, the Sabbath (“Ehud” in Amharic) and declared resurrection of the dead (life after bodily death and life in heaven).

“He suffered; crucified and resurrected on the third day!” Daily Prayer

The redeemer of the world, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came down to earth from the heavens, be born from Holy Mother Saint Virgin Mary, be baptized, taught the gospel, healed and cured many aliments and leprosies, suffered, crucified and resurrected on the third day for the salvation of human race.

“Behold, Save us now!”

The Sabbath that Our Lord and Savior Jesus came to Jerusalem sitting on a donkey known as “Hosanna” meaning “Behold, save us now!”, is a feast which all in the name of Christian celebrates.

The teaching of the childhood enviably

Good Service

Spirituality in Christian life is the scarification for God and a good service is vital. A service is said to be good if it merits the reflection of spiritual life filled with perseverance of religion and diligence. It is of the essence for a servile to know the endeavors of good service. Then, whether individually or unison, all who praise His Name and live under His command in a spiritual service, presents good service. Our faith, religion, spiritual knowledge and Christian endeavors are its measurement.

Who is faithful servant?

Foremost, service is bestowed for the Almighty Lord; God, Who is the creator of all. Primarily who served Him by praising “Holy Holy Holy” were Angles in the heavens. Then followed the first man kind Adam, where he lived in praising and prayer in heaven.
