November 24, 2022
Dear Children of God! How are you? How is school and your study? Hope you are doing well! Children, always remember to be active and attentive at your school because you need to understand the lesson that your teacher presents in the classroom. You must also have a behavior, be obedient and respect your teachers as well as your elders.
Dear Children! Do you remember our last lesson? If so, good. If not let us remind you. It was about lie which is a sin. We hope from that lesson you have understood that you shall always tell the truth and never lie even once in your life time; and if you have lied, it better to ask forgiveness from God and to the person you have lied too. You can plead God to bring mercy upon you for your sin. You can also plead through the intercession (pleading, begging) of Saint Mary, Angels, Apostles, Saints, Righteous, Martyrs and Monks.
Dear Children, alongside Holy Mother Saint Mary, these chosen children of God, help us repent (cleanse) our sin. That is one of the reason we have prepared a lesson about the Seven Archangels who are Saint Michael, Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael, Saint Raguel, Saint Uriel, Saint Phanuel, and Saint Saquel.

Dear Children, after Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was crucified upon the cross, Saint Uriel poured His Holy Blood all over the world. Earth is blessed because of this reason.

Dear Children of God! This Angles are the leaders but there are hundred thousand and more angels who live in Heaven. They praise God every time and send to protect and safe us from harm and bring our prayer before God. There is feast is celebrated annual on Hidar 13 (November 22).
Dear Children, angels are not like people. They don’t starve, eat or drink, get tired or sleep. They always praise God. With the vow given to them, they plead for us. So, we shall also praise God like the angels and do good for other people. Thus, we will be honored but if we do bad deeds, we shall not receive honor from the Lord. It is always necessary to remember that God is pleased when we only praise Him and be good. Ok children!
