Ge’ez

Ge‘ez, is a South Semitic language that survived as a spoken language in what is now Ethiopia and Eritrea until sometime between 900 and 1200 and remains in use as a liturgical language to this day. In its earliest form, the Ge’ez script was an abjad, or writing system consisting only of consonants; by the 4th century the script had developed into an abugida, or alphasyllabary, a writing system in which each symbol represents a consonant-vowel combination. Ge‘ez literature is dominated by religious texts, and this is reflected in the collection of manuscripts at the Fisher, which includes prayer books, a Psalter, a hagiography of Abuna Gabra Manfas Qeddus, and a life of Jesus Christ.

God knows all things

Many may be tempted in thinking God might not answer their prayer and be tempted to lose heart and faith in the promises of the Lord. There seems to be this idea among many Christians that as long as we ask for good and Godly things, then surely God will give them to us. Observing as how God is omnipotent and His loves for humans, then surely He will not deprive us from those good things that we are asking for. Yet, even the One Holy Church is filled with history and examples to prove the complete opposite of this.

Nineveh’s Fast

Nineveh’s Fast is the commemoration of the penance of the Ninevites through the preaching of Jonah. It lasts for three whole days, representing the time spent by Jonah inside the belly of the whale, starting on a Monday to Wednesday exactly two weeks before the fast of the Great Lent. The eating of fish and all forms of animal fat are abstained from by the Church during this fast. (Jonah 3:1-10)

“As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you” (Isaiah 66:13)

Only God is the true remedy and comfort to the great sorrow of human beings. We all believe in God seeking His mercy during hardships we endure in everyday life, descending into hopelessness, whilst life makes no sense; frequently, left high and dry, without a shoulder to cry on, in tortured life while soul is eternally condemned.

The Feeding of Five Thousand

The Gospel of the feeding of the  five thousand men may seem to be nothing more than a simple miracle story but is so much more. There are many layers of meaning, and depending on the level of our emptiness, that is, our openness and willingness, we receive what we at any given time are capable of receiving.
