21 Apr

On Wednesday, April 20th, 2022, His Eminence Mor Dionysius John Kawak celebrated the Holy Liturgy at St. Mark’s Cathedral, in the presence of Very Rev. Fr. Joseph Chamoun the Parish Priest, Very Rev. Fr. Andrew Bahhi and Rev. Fr. Gabriel Alkass, on the occasion of Hamsho d’Roze (Holy Thursday/Maundy Thursday) which represents the day during Holy Week that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. In his sermon, His Eminence spoke about the importance of the Eucharist and how we renew the covenant of love when we receive it. He reminded the faithful that “we do this with confidence because God has loved us first and has promised His Spirit, the Spirit of love, who will empower us to live lives of love as we proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes.”
