Congratulations Message from Bishop Julius to Saint Mina Fathers and Church Members on the occasion of Easter – April 2020
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said (Mathew 28:6)
Beloved Fathers, Youth, Servants, and Members of Saint Mina Church, Jebel Ali, UAE
The resurrection was announced to the women who came to the grave. These women had special characteristics that drew our attention to Jesus Christ’s resurrection, which might also be revealed in our lives:
1. They are the ones who carry the ointment, which is love. You, too, carry the ointment and present love in every word, every situation, all the time and everywhere. When you present love, you will see the blessings of resurrection in your life.
2. They are early, they rose very early in the morning. You, too, set the Lord to be your priority once you start your day, the first stage of your health, the first thing you possess. Put the Lord first, and you will see the blessings of resurrection in your life.
3. They have very strong faith. The stone was very heavy at the door of the tomb, and they were weak women. Nevertheless, they were not discouraged by the challenges or their weaknesses, as a result of their faith, the angel rolled the stone. All challenges (stones) are resolved to believers no matter the magnitude, as a result of Jesus Christ’s resurrection.
Congratulations to you all on the Lord’s resurrection; I am asking our Lord for your joy, peace and tranquility.Anba Youlios, April 2020
