His Holiness Pope Tawadros's Feast of Resurrection Sermon (with English subtitles)

✝️ The Lord Christ arose on the third day after the cross and His resurrection had its mark historically, geographically, archeologically, ecclesiastically, as well as upon the many places that witness of the resurrection and the eyewitnesses of its events.
This Resurrection proved that life is more powerful than death, that love is greater than hate, that good is more powerful than evil, and that truth is superior to vanity.

🔔 Watch an English subtitled version of HH Pope Tawadros' sermon at the liturgy of the Resurrection feast 18 April 2020

Therefore the disciples told Thomas who came last of all: “We have seen the Lord, we have seen He Who said: 'I am the light of the word'; we have seen Him Who said: 'I am the resurrection and the life and the truth', and the words of truth we found truly shining in Him. We have seen Him Who said: 'After three days I will arise, and you will behold the resurrection', and we worshiped Him Who was resurrected. We heard Him tell us: 'Peace be unto you', and our confusion of sadness was transformed into peace and joy. We beheld His hands showing the signs of the nails.

For by [St Thomas'] doubting, I am taught to believe; by [his] forked-tongue that revealed the wound on the divine body that was pierced, I harvest the fruit for myself without pain. [For you said] unless I see with my eyes the wounds in His holy hands, then the impious would question, without accepting our words. Unless I place this my finger into the marks of the nails, then they will not receive our Gospel. Unless I place this my hand into that side, the untrampling witness of the resurrection, they will not believe my words.... It is one thing to hear, and another to see. It is one thing to receive words, and another to see and touch something. Therefore doubt conquered the mind of Thomas, and after eight days again the Master appeared to His disciples who were gathered together. He left Thomas during these days to be preached to by the others, and to fill him with the thirst for the vision of Him, and his soul was greatly inflamed with the desire to see. Therefore, at the proper time, the one who was desiring perceived the One Who is desired.

From St John Chrysostom's Homily on Thomas Sunday

[04/25/20]   فيروس كورونا ومحبة الله خطبة حضرة الأنبا باخوميوس مطران البحيرة ووتوابعها.

يا حبيبي ، خلال هذه الأيام التي نحتفل فيها بالعيد المقدس وعيد القيامة المجيد وجميع الأعياد المتعلقة به ، كان من الصعب على قلوبنا الاحتفال بهذه الأيام بطريقة بديلة. وعلى الرغم من أننا نشارك هذه الأيام المقدسة مع بعضنا البعض ، فإن ما يشغلني الآن هو: لماذا فعل الرب ذلك؟ ولماذا سمح بكل المعاناة المصاحبة له؟ لقد عرفنا محبة الله في حياتنا ، وندرك في عمق الإيمان أن الله صالح وعادل وحب ، ولكنه أيضًا لا يقبل الشر ، ويألمه الذنوب التي يرتكبها أولاده. لقد سمح بما نعانيه لكي تكون هناك دعوة عامة للتوبة وتجديد الحياة مع الله. في تاريخ البشرية ، نجد أن الله سمح بالعديد من المعاناة التي كان فيها دعوة إلى الدقة والتوبة وتجديد الحياة مع الرب. إن الله الذي يحبنا كثيرًا لا يريد أن نفقد الملكوت السماوي ، وبما أن الخطية هي العائق الأساسي للمملكة السماوية ، فقد سمح الرب في مناسبات عديدة بالعقاب ، حتى يعود الإنسان إلى رشده ، ويفكر في حياته الأبدية ، ويدرك مقاصد الله المعلنة في أفعاله. تدخل الله المحبب مرات عديدة في تاريخ البشرية من أجل استعادة الإنسان من أخطائه ، لذلك كانت هناك معاناة كثيرة كانت محصورة وكذلك معاناة استثنائية من أجل جلب الإنسان والأجيال من بعده ، للتفكير على الخلود. الإله المحب الذي أحبنا أولاً والذي نحبه ، سمح للفيضان الذي قضى على البشرية جمعاء لأن شر الإنسان قد أتى أمام الرب. أسقط نار الدمار على سدوم وعمورة وآخرين ، والتي أصبحت بالنسبة لنا في هذه النصب التذكارية حتى نعيش في طهارة للرب. حذر الله مدينة نينوى من الخراب ، ولكن حبه قبل توبيتهم ، وأبعد غضبه عنهم. لذلك ، يا حبيبي ، نحن نؤمن بمحبة الله الواسعة التي لا يمكن فهمها ونؤمن بعدله ورحمته. نحن نؤمن بمعاناته الطويلة ولطفه ، ولكن عندما تتكاثر قوة الشر والخطيئة ، لم يعد الله قادرًا على الصمت على هذا الشر والخطيئة.
نرى في عالم اليوم أن الشر يتقدم بشكل مفرط على كل مستوى: على المستويين الروحي والأخلاقي ، على المستويين الاقتصادي والسياسي ، على المستوى الإنساني ... وهكذا. في تقدم البشرية المفرط في الشر ، نقرأ عن أنواع الشر التي لم نكن نعرفها من قبل ولم نتوقع وجودها على الإطلاق ، والعالم يتقدم فيها. يرى الرب أن الخليقة التي صنعها على صورته بعيدة جداً وبعيدة عن حياة الطهارة. لقد نظر الله إلى خليقته في البداية على أنها جيدة جدًا ، لكن الخليقة غيرت اتجاهها وغيرت طرقها بسبب الخطيئة والشهوة والبعد عن الله. الإله المحب هو أيضًا عادل ، وبقدر ما يحب ، فهو عادل. لذلك ، عندما يتقدم الإنسان بشكل مفرط في شره ويعلن عدم رغبته في التوبة ولا يستجيب ، يسقط الله غضبه في عدله وفي سلطته. إن الله المحب لا يتخلى عن حبه ، لكن شر البشرية يقيده بالتعامل مع هذا الشر بصرامه ونقاوته ، حتى يعيد كل شخص من طريقه إلى الهلاك. نشكر الله ، لأننا ندرك أنه سيبعد غضبه عن شعبه التائب ونرى الآن أنواع التائبين الذين عادوا من طرقهم الشريرة ، وأنه سيتدخل بقوة ويزيل القلق والخوف وفقدان السلام والمرض عندما يرى كثرة التائبين. نحن كرجال نتوق إلى السلام من أجل العودة إلى صورته الإلهية التي صنعنا عليها. نسمع صوت الرب قائلاً: "إذا كنت أنا الأب ، فأين شرفي؟ وإذا كنت سيدًا ، فأين تقديسي؟ " (Mal 1: 6). إن عدل الله لا يبطل لطفه وثباته ، وندعو له ، "ارجع إلي وسأعود إليك". نأخذ درساً من عدل الله الذي أُعلن في الطوفان وسدوم وعمورة. ولأولئك الذين يقولون أن هذه كانت في العهد القديم ، يجب أن يعرفوا أن كلمة الله هي "الأمس واليوم والى الأبد" و "الذين ليس لهم اختلاف أو ظل تحول" (يش 1). : 17). يجب ألا نرى عدالة الله وثباته مع حنانيا وصفيرة وفي كلمات القديس بولس الرسول عن آثم كورنثوس: "سلموا مثل هذا الشيطان لتدمير الجسد ، ليخلص روحه في يوم الرب يسوع "(1 كور 5: 5)؟
لقد أخبرنا الكتاب المقدس أن هناك الكثير من اللعنات المعلنة في افتقاد الإنسان لحياة الطهارة ، لذلك يسمع الصوت قائلاً ، "ملعونًا تكون في المدينة ، وملعونًا تكون في البلاد. ملعون يكون سلتك ووعاء العجن. ملعون من ثمر جسدك وانتاج ارضك وزيادة ماشيتك ونسل غنمك. ملعون تكون عند دخولك وملعون عند خروجك. سوف يرسل إليك الرب لعنًا وإرباكًا وتوبيخًا في كل ما تضع يدك على فعله ، حتى يتم تدميرك حتى تهلك بسرعة ، بسبب شر أعمالك التي تركتها لي. الرب يجعل الطاعون يتشبث بك حتى يخلصك من الأرض التي ستمتلكها. سوف يضربك الرب بالاستهلاك والحمى والالتهاب والحمى الحارقة الشديدة والسيف والجروح والعفن. يلاحقونك حتى تهلك. وسماواتك التي على رأسك تكون من البرونز والأرض تحتك تكون حديدًا. الرب يغير مطر ارضك الى مسحوق وغبار. تنزل عليك من السماء حتى تهلك. سيهزمك الرب أمام أعدائك [أمراضك و Coronavirus] ؛ يجب عليك أن تخرج في اتجاه واحد عليهم وتهرب أمامهم بسبع طرق ؛ وتصبح مزعجا لجميع ممالك الارض "(تث 28: 16-25).
في الواقع ، إذا فكرنا في كلمة الله ، فإنها ستكشف لنا أحكامًا مخيفة ومزعجة من هذه اللعنات ومن رعب الأشياء الصعبة فيها. لقد نزلت اللعنات على العالم نتيجة الخطيئة ، ونحن هنا نستدعي عمل الروح القدس ونقول لجميع أحبائنا في الإنسانية ، "ارجعوا إلي وسأعود إليكم". نحن ندرك محبة الله الحقيقية التي تتوسط لنا وتغفر لنا وتعيدنا إلى حضرته الإلهية ، وفي عدله نرى محبته ، والمحبة لا تفشل أبدًا. ومع ذلك ، "أنا أعرف أعمالك ، وعملك ، وصبرك ، وأنه لا يمكنك تحمل أولئك الأشرار. وقد اختبرت أولئك الذين يقولون أنهم رسل وليسوا ، ووجدتهم كاذبين ؛ لقد ثابرت وصبرت ، وعملت من أجل اسمي ولم تشعر بالضجر. ومع ذلك لدي هذا ضدك ، أنك تركت حبك الأول. لذلك تذكر من أين أنت غالبًا ما نخطئ عندما نفكر في محبة الله ونستمر في خطايتنا ، بافتراض أن الرب في حبه سيقبلنا ، ومع ذلك فإن كلمة الله قوية وواضحة: "ما لم تتوب ستهلك جميعًا بالمثل" (لوقا 13: 3)

[04/24/20]   Corona Virus and God’s Love
Sermon by His Grace Anba Bakhomios
Metropolitan of Beheira & Penta-Polis

My beloved, during these days in which we celebrate the holy feasts and the glorious Feast of the Resurrection and all the feasts pertaining to it, it has been tough on our hearts to celebrate these days in an alternative way. And though we are sharing these holy days with one another, what is preoccupying me now is:
Why has the Lord done this?
And why has He permitted all the suffering that goes with it? We have known God’s love in our lives, and we perceive in the depth of faith that God is good and just and loving, but also that He does not accept evil, and is pained by the sins His children commit.

He has permitted what we are suffering in order for there to be a general call to repentance and a renewal of the life with God. In mankind’s history, we find that God permitted many sufferings in which there was a call to meticulousness and repentance and renewal of life with the Lord. God who loves us greatly does not will that we lose the heavenly kingdom, and as sin is the primary hindrance to the heavenly kingdom, therefore the Lord permitted on many occasions chastisements so that man returns to his senses, considers his eternal life, and realizes God’s purposes which are declared in His acts.

The loving God intervened numerous times in the history of mankind in order to bring man back from his errors, so there were many sufferings that were confined as well as sufferings that were exceptional in order to bring both man and the generations after him, to reflect on eternity.

The loving God who first loved us and whom we love, permitted the Flood which wiped out all mankind because mankind’s wickedness had come up before the Lord. He brought down the fire of destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah and others, which became for us in these eras memorials so that we live in purity to the Lord. God warned the city of Nineveh of coming destruction, but His love accepted their repentance and He turned away His wrath from them. Therefore, my beloved, we believe in God’s vast and unfathomable love and we believe in His justice and mercy. We believe in His long-suffering and gentleness, but when the force of evil and sin multiplies, God can no longer keep silent over this evil and sin.

We see in today’s world evil going excessively far on every level: on the spiritual and moral levels, on the economical and political levels, on the human level… and so on. In mankind’s excessive progression in evil, we are reading about types of evil that we had never known before nor had we ever expected to exist, and the world is progressing in it. The Lord sees that the creation which He made in His image far remote and distant from the life of purity. God had looked upon His creation initially as being very good, but creation has changed direction and changed its ways due to sin and lust and distance from God.

The loving God is also just, and as much as He is loving, He is just. Therefore, when man progresses excessively in his wickedness and declares His lack of desire for repentance and is not responding, God brings down His wrath in His justice and in His authority.

The loving God does not forsake His love, but mankind’s evil constrains Him to deal with this evil with His strictness and His purity, so as to bring every person back from his path to perdition. We thank God, for we perceive that He will turn away His wrath from His penitent people and we see now types of penitents who have returned from their evil ways, and that He will intervene powerfully and take away the anxiety and fear and loss of peace and illness when He sees the multitudes of penitents increasing.
We as men, yearn for peace in order to return to His Divine Image on which He made us.

We hear the Lord’s voice saying, “If then I am the Father, where is My honor? And if I am a Master, where is My reverence?” (Mal.1:6). God’s justice does not annul His gentleness and His firmness, and we call out with Him, “Return to Me, and I will return to you”. We take a lesson from God’s justice which was proclaimed in the Flood and Sodom and Gomorrah. And to those who say that these were in the Old Testament, they must know that the Word of God is “the same yesterday, today, and forever”, and “with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning” (Jas.1:17).

Ought we not to see God’s justice and firmness with Ananias and Sapphira and in Saint Paul the Apostle’s words about the sinner of Corinthians: “deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus” (1Cor. 5:5)?
The Holy Bible has told us that there are many curses declared in man’s lack of perception of the life of purity so he hears the voice saying, “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. The Lord will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me. The Lord will make the plague cling to you until He has consumed you from the land which you are going to possess. The Lord will strike you with consumption, with fever, with inflammation, with severe burning fever, with the sword, with scorching, and with mildew; they shall pursue you until you perish.
And your heavens which are over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you shall be iron. The Lord will change the rain of your land to powder and dust; from the heaven, it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.
The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies [your illnesses and the Coronavirus]; you shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them; and you shall become troublesome to all the kingdoms of the earth” (Deut. 28:16-25).

Indeed, if we contemplate the Word of God, it will reveal to us fearsome and disturbing judgments from these curses and from the terror of the hard things in them. The curses have descended upon the world as a result of sin, and we here invoke the work of the Holy Spirit and say to all our loved ones in humanity, “Return to Me, and I will return to you”.
We perceive God’s true love which intercedes for us and which forgives us and which restores us to His Divine embrace, and in His justice, we see His love, and love never fails. Nevertheless, “I know your works, your labour, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil.

And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent” (Rev.2:2-5).

This is a call to us all “redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph. 5:16), so that we cry out with a loud voice: Repent for your sins, or else I will “remove your lamp-stand from its place- unless you repent”.

Our trust is sure in God’s perfect love and true justice, He who is calling us to a general repentance like the people of Nineveh’s, upon whom He had mercy. Together with our realization of the magnitude of God’s love, is our realization of the magnitude of His justice and zeal for His commandments, so that now becomes an opportunity for every person to return to the Lord repenting of every sin.

So often we err when we consider God’s love and continue in our sin, assuming that the Lord in His love will accept us, yet the word of God is powerful and clear: “unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3)

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death and upon those in the tomb bestowing life!

He has gone to search for our first parent, as for a lost sheep. Greatly desiring to visit those who live in darkness and in the shadow of death, he has gone to free from sorrow the captives Adam and Eve, he who is both God and the son of Eve. The Lord approached them bearing the cross, the weapon that had won him the victory.

A homily of our holy father Abba Athanasius the Apostolic. May his blessings be with us. Amen. It is so written in the Scriptures; if our souls are following the law of God, the powers of darkness will not overpower us, but if we drift away from God, they will prevail on us.
You man, who want to be salvaged, teach yourself to float in the depth of God’s richness and wisdom.
Spread your arms in the likeness of the Cross to cross the great sea which is this life and reach to God.
The hindering doubts are for those who live away from the commands of the Universal Church, I mean disbelief, adultery, evil report and love of money that is the root of all evils.
But the sign of the Cross is spread over all the creation.
If the sun does not emit its rays, it cannot glow; neither the moon would light too.
The birds in the sky, if they do not spread their wings they cannot fly, neither the ships can leave port if they do not spread their sails.
Behold, Moses the Archprophet spread his arms and defeated Amalek.
Daniel was saved from the lions den, Jonah from the fish’s belly,
And Takla when they there her to the lions, she was saved by the likeness of the Cross.
Also Susanna from the hands of the two old men, Judith from Holofernes and the three young men from the burning fiery furnace. All those were saved by the likeness of the Cross.
It was also said: let your port be in one place, the Church, to be nourished by the words of the books by the heavenly bread and blood of Christ.
We conclude the homily of our holy father Abba Athanasius the apostolic who enlightened our minds and our hearts. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen.
