Holy Liturgy at St. Mark’s Cathedral

24 Aug

On Sunday, August 23rd, 2020 His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak celebrated the Holy Liturgy at St. Mark’s Cathedral and was assisted by Very Rev. Fr. Augeen Alkhouri, in the presence of Very Rev. Fr. Joseph Chamoun and Rev. Fr. Gabriel Alkass. In his sermon he spoke about the Great Supper from (Luke 14: 15-24).  His Eminence mentioned how many of us do not accept the invitation of Christ and will come up with many excuses such as being busy with our businesses, or family responsibilities and how many of us misplace our priorities and how we should not allow earthly matters to interfere with our spiritual matters. Archbishop Kawak also mentioned that we should always remind ourselves that God comes first. He then concluded his sermon with mentioning that the Lord is inviting us all today, to come and join Him, like it is said “Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!” (Revelation 19:9).
