"هأَنَذَا صَانِعٌ أَمْرًا جَدِيدًا. الآنَ يَنْبُتُ. أَلاَ تَعْرِفُونَهُ؟ أَجْعَلُ فِي الْبَرِّيَّةِ طَرِيقًا، فِي الْقَفْرِ أَنْهَارًا. "(أش 43: 19)     
" Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert."

قصة أعجبتني

حملت معه صليبه

اعتاد أحد الشبان أن يأتي إلى أبينا القمص بيشوي كامل يشكي له همومه؛ فقد عانى كثيرًا من البطالة، وأخيرًا استأجره صاحب مصنع كان يستغله بمرارة، إذ كان يعطيه كميات ضخمة من الورق يقوم بتوصيلها على دراجة.
في أحد الأيام جاءه الشاب فرحًا، يقول له: "يا أبي لقد حملت معه صليب!"
لقد حملت الورق الثقيل على الدراجة؛ وفي نهاية شارع بورسعيد؛ إذ كان الطريق مرتفعًا (عند منطقة كليوباترة الحمامات بالإسكندرية) شعرت بثقل الحمل وعجزي عن السير بالدراجة حاولت بكل الطرق، لكن بدون جدوى. فجأة وجدت نفسي ساقطًا تحت الدراجة والأوراق بثقلها تنهار علىّ!سأله أبونا: كيف؟
لم يتحرك أحد الطريق لمساندتي، فصرخت في مرارة طالبًا العون الإلهي! تلفتُ عن اليمين وأنا ملقى تحت أكوام الورق؛ وإذا بي أجد سيدي المسيح ساقطًا تحت صليبه، والعرق يتصبب منه. أدركت أنني أشاركه آلامه؛ ففرحت جدًا وحسبت ذلك كرامه لا استحقها!
في فرح ناجيت سيدي شاكرًا إياه: "آه يا سيدي! هل لي أن أحمل معك صليبك! إنني سعيد بآلام المسيح فيّ! لقد حملت معه صليبه! لا بل حملني صليبه!

Saint of the Week

 
The Commemoration of the Four Incorporeal Beasts

In this day is the commemoration of the four Incorporeal Beasts who carry the throne of God. As it is mentioned by St. John who witnessed this in his Revelation saying, "Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardine stone in appearance: and there was a rainbow around the throne in appearance like an emerald: ... and in the midst of the throne and around the throne, were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second living creature like a calf, the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle. The four living creatures each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying, 'Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty who was, and is, and is to come.'"

قديس هذا الأسبوع

تذكار الأربعة حيوانات الغير متجديسين

في مثل هذا اليوم تذكار الأربعة حيوانات غير المتجسدين حاملي مركبة الإله، كما يذكر الشاهد بذلك صاحب الرؤيا بقوله "وللوقت صرت في الروح وإذا عرش موضوع في السماء وعلي العرش جالس، وكان الجالس في المنظر شبه حجر اليشب والعقيق وقوس قزح حول العرش في المنظر شبه الزمرد، وفي وسط العرش وحول العرش أربعة حيوانات مملوءة عيونا من قدام ومن وراء، والحيوان الأول شبه أسد، والحيوان الثاني شبه عجل، والحيوان الثالث له وجه مثل وجه إنسان، والحيوان الرابع شبه نسر طائر، والأربعة الحيوانات لكل واحد منها ستة أجنحة حولها ومن داخل مملوءة عيونا ولا تزال نهارا وليلا قائلة قدوس قدوس قدوس الرب الإله القادر علي كل شيء الذي كان والكائن والذي يأتي" وقال إشعياء النبي "رأيت السيد جالسا علي كرسي عال مرتفع وأذياله تملأ الهيكل، والسيرافيم واقفون، ولكل واحد ستة أجنحة، باثنين يغطي وجهه، وباثنين يغطي رجليه، وباثنين يطير، وهذا نادي ذاك وقال قدوس قدوس قدوس رب الجنود مجده ملء كل الأرض"

Words with Meaning
By Fr Abram Abdelmalek
  • Water does not extinguish all types of fires, so do not volunteer extinguishing fires, unless you are an expert in this field.
  • If you blow in flour, your face will turn white, and if you blow in ash, your face will turn black, so your face is colouring with the surrounding media.
  • Ritual are put for human, not human for ritual.
  • Ritual is a mean not a goal.
  • Ritual is a vehicle, by which we reach to the knowledge of God and His love.
  • Salvation of my brother and my love to him is more important than any ritual, because the ritual is love, as Pope Kyrillos VI said.
  • We do not worship the throne of God, but we worship God who sits upon, same as we do not worship the cross, but we worship who was crucified to save us.

كلمات ذات معني

للقس إبرام عبد الملك

 
  • الماء لا يطفئ جميع أنواع الحرائق، فلا تتطوع بإطفاء الحرائق، ما لم تكن خبيرا في هذا المجال.
  • إذا نفخت في الدقيق تعفر وجهك بالبياض، وإذا نفخت في الرماد تغبر وجهك بالسواد، فوجهك يتلون بلون الوسط المحيط بك.
  • وضع الطقس من أجل الإنسان، وليس الإنسان من أجل الطقس.
  • الطقوس وسيلة وليست غاية.
  • الطقوس هي مركبة نصل بها إلى معرفة الله ومحبته.
  • خلاص أخي ومحبتي له أهم من أي طقس، إذ الطقس هو المحبة، كما قال البابا كيرلس السادس.
  • كما إننا لا نعبد عرش الله، ولكن نعبد الجالس عليه، كذلك نحن لا نعبد الصليب، ولكننا نعبد الذي صلب عليه ليخلصنا.

Cardinal rebuts commission's 'Get Pell' campaign

The credibility of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has been tainted by a submission by counsel assisting that repeats unsustainable allegations of cover-up by Cardinal George Pell.

The Cardinal rebutted the allegations systematically, both in torrid cross-examination last March and more recently, through his legal counsel. His evidence has been supported by other submissions to the royal commission.
