24.2.14

ዘወረደ Zewered

The First Week of Lent 
   

ዘወረደ …የወረደ ማለት ሲሆን
ጌታ እኛን ለማዳንና ፍቅሩን ሊገልጽልን ከሰማያት መውረዱን ከድንግል ማርያም የእኛን ሥጋ መዋሐዱን የሚያዘክር ምስጋና የሚቀርብበት ሳምንት ነው።


Let us begin the Fast with joy and prepare ourselves for spiritual efforts…

When we fast lets other members of the body also need to fast: our eyes... from seeing evil, our ears... from hearing evil, our limbs... from participating in anything that is not of God.
And…our mouths…yes… lets control what comes out of our mouths. Are our words pleasing to God? Or…. our brother?

Most important of all, we need to control our thoughts, for thoughts are the source of our actions, whether good or evil.


እንኳን ለጌታችን ዐቢይ ጾም አደረሳችሁ
