The Great Lent
The Great Lent is a great milestone for Christians. We present aids and tools to enable us to cleanse our body, mind, and soul during the Great Lent.

Why Should We Observe the Lent and Fasting?
We should keenly look forward to the Lent- because the purpose of Prayer & Fasting is to defeat the Satan.

On Prayer
It is customary since ancient times for the Patriarch of Antioch to issue a lengthy encyclical for the Great Lent exhorting the faithful to observe the lent in its true spirit. Here is one on prayer.

The Great Lent- An Opportunity for Us to Cleanse Our Mind, Body and Soul
While confessing, repenting and seeking forgiveness, we too should prepare ourselves to forgive others. In that way, let us get rid of all the ill-feelings from our mind and purify it, so that the heavenly peace can enter our hearts and stimulate us, to lead a true Christian life.

True Nature of Fasting
The primary aim of fasting is to make us conscious of our dependence upon God. It is to lead us to a sense of inward brokenness and contrition; to bring to us to the point where we appreciate the full force of Christ's statement, `Without Me you can do nothing.' 

Synopsis for Sermons and Meditations During the Lenten Period
A great tool to help us cleanse ourselves of our hurtfulness. Covers faith, love, forgiveness, repentance, mercy, and more.

Lenten Prayers of St. Nersess

St. John Chrysostom on Fasting

Passion Week Thoughts
I would like to lead a meditation based on the reading from St. Luke Chapter 5 verses 1-11. There we find how St. Peter, the blessed Apostle identified himself soon on meeting our Lord.

Events in the Passion week
with Biblical References (Spring AD 30 -approximately)

Miracle at Cana
On the first day of Great Lent the Holy Church introduces Jesus as the Creator of Universe. Faithful is on a spiritual pilgrimage with Jesus Christ knowing Him as Creator, Divine healer, Lord of Sabbath, Light of the world, Life-giver, Triumphant ruler and the one and only atoning sacrifice for the redemption of humanity. The pilgrimage culminates in the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ, hope of eternal life.

Holy and Great Lent/Catechetical Homily
Our Church through the Holy Fathers designates that each year the season of Great Lent be set aside as a time for repentance. Although repentance is necessary every day and every hour, during Lent our Church invites us to experience repentance in a deeper sense.

Meaning of the Palm Sunday Services
Like the Virgins who waited for the Lord, the Church is also waiting with fasting and prayer for the arrival of its Lord and Savior the Kingdom of God. The present fasting, prayer and everything of the Church is to welcome Jesus as the Lord and King.

Meaning of Passion Week
What does passion week mean to us? It is more than just an annual remembrance of the passion - the pain and suffering, crucifixion, death, and resurrection of our Lord - for all of us.

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
The passion week is the time when we are supposed to survey the wondrous Cross and study the pain and suffering our Lord had to endure or experience to save us and to give us a place in Paradise just like He gave it to one of the thieves who was crucified with Him.

The Meaning of the Cross
Although the cross reveals the ugliness of human heart, it also reveals God's grace and forgiveness. It was on the cross God himself laid upon our sins upon His own dear Son, Jesus Christ. On that cross, Jesus paid the penalty of our sins.

Devotional Thoughts for Easter
If one would call the greatest event in Christian history, that event will be the Resurrection of our Lord.††The greatest of the miracles is the Resurrection and the greatest of the mysteries also is the Resurrection.

Easter Greetings
The message of Easter is the good tidings. Jesus is risen. It is a good news for the whole world. It proclaims Jesusí victory over death. It is the victory of all those who accept the good news.

The Easter Sermon of St. John Chrysostom

Easter Message from Baghdad, Iraq
The life and teachings of Jesus have inspired people throughout the ages to strive for a better world and a more meaningful life. Jesus' death stands out in history as the perfect example of unconditional love.

The Point of the Passion
Iíve been thinking a lot about The Passion of the Christ the past few weeks and have heard mixed reviews and comments regarding much of the information presented in the film.
Who Killed Jesus
Who killed Jesus? You and I did. Jews, Christians, and every person who has been born or will be born.
The Passion of the Christ: Review of the Movie - From a Christian Perspective
In my opinion, the move is exceptionally good in depicting the last 12 hours of Jesus Christ. It truthfully depicts what is in the Gospels; a few artistic liberties were taken, however, without affecting what is portrayed in the bible. And these are kept absolutely to a minimum.
The Passion of The Christ: Another Review
When I sat down this evening to write a review of The Passion of The Christ, you must imagine how profound it is for me that I am struggling with words and with the very idea of having to write about this movie. To say I am at a loss doesn't begin to express how inadequate I feel to even attempt to convey all that this movie is.
Passion of Christ- Mel Gibson's Act of Faith
Mr. Gibson emerged as a man with strong convictions about his faith as he detailed his own passions for alcohol, drugs etc. which brought him close to suicide once. On TV, he witnessed how Christ's passion helped him overcome his battles in life.
The Medical view of His suffering
Here is a look at the conditions Jesus underwent during his passion from a medical point of view. 
Aramaic, The Language Jesus Spoke
Aramaic is one of the few languages that has been spoken continuously for thousands of years. It first appeared in written records around the 10th century B.C. though it was likely already being spoken earlier.
Why Is The Resurrection Significant?
It is through Christ's death and resurrection that we are able to receive eternal life through belief in Jesus Christ.
Against Gnosticism: Why the Gnostic Christians weren't Christians
Gnosis is used in three ways: as knowledge in general terms; as mystical communion; as sexual intercourse.4 This article will be concerned with the second as it applies to the Resurrection.
Three Ways to Develop Our Faith in Christ
We can develop our faith in Christ by hearing the word, studying the word, and praying for understanding of the word of God.
