Letter to the friends of Deir Mar Musa 2016

 

I will have mercy and not sacrifice!”   (Hosea 6, 6;  Matthew 9.13)   

With these words, the Bishop of Rome, Francis, began his discourse on the occasion of Lent 2016, saying:  “In the bull of indiction of the Jubilee, I gave out this invitation so that Lent in this Jubilee year might be lived more internally as a strong moment to celebrate and experience the mercy of God.” (Misericordiae Vultus, 17).  He went on to add that “the mercy of God is in fact an announcement to the world:  but every Christian is called upon to make experience of this mercy in the first person.”

Sister Houda Fadoul

Every time I try to write these lines to you, our dear friends, I am confused, because the words betray me and do not help me to convey the bitterness that is in my heart: The confusion that occupies my mind because of the pain and sadness for what we experience in our dear country, Syria. The love of homeland in me is strong and deep, which opens a wound in my heart and I find no remedy for this other than prayer, as many Syrian do these days.

Dear Friends,

Sunday Mass and Start of the Year of Faith, 14 october 2012

A thought:

11 October it was fifty years that the Second Vatican Council began. It was the effort of the Church of the twentieth century to consider its past, its present situation and project itself into the future. Exactly because of these three tasks Pope John XXIII called it a pastoral Council. It was however one of the first times in the history of Christianity that the Church reflected in this depth about its own mystery. In this spirit the Church entered 11 October the Year of Faith.

A thought:

"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man". That is a strange statement. But if we think a moment about it a Kingdom without King -or Queen- is not a Kingdom at all. Everything in a realm like this is based on the one person that constitutes a Kingdo: the King.
