The Great Fast

Dear Children of God, Greetings to you and gratitude to Almighty God!

Children, how are you? We hope you are well!

Today we are going to teach you about “The Great Fast.”

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.

“Giving honor to the wife that your prayers may not be hindered” (1 Peter 3:7)

Marriage is the basic unit of society in all biblical cultures. The Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” (Genesis 2:18)

“Wives, submit to your own husbands as to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:22)

Marriage is a Mystery that belongs to an entirely different order than the mere union of a man and woman. It basically regards a husband and wife as symbols of another marriage; namely, the marriage of Lord Jesus and the Church: “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord…therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.” (Ephesians 5:22-24)

The mere savior of the strayed
The mender of the broken hearts
