Asking God for Things


Asking God for Things By Fr. Simon Esshaki   Probably all of us have experienced a time in our lives when we asked God for something and did not receive it. We could ask ourselves why Jesus would say that we should “ask and receive” if he will not give us what we ask for.

The Reality of Death


The Reality of Death By Fr. Daniel Shaba   Why do we use alternative words for death when expressing that someone has died? I have noticed that many people use terms such as: passed away, departed from with world, and phrases alike. Why do we shy away from saying that this person died?

Easter By Fr. Andrew Younan John 20:1-18 I want to follow Mary Magdalene through this and what was going on. I want to think about how she progressed from the sadness that she had at the very beginning of the gospel to the joy that she had at the end. The reason I'm doing this is because I'm sad and we're sad and there's a lot to be sad about, and I want to see how she dealt with her sadness and how Christ interacted with her in this sad moment. First, I want to point out she was not in [...]
