In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, One God. Amen.

The Feast of the Nayrouz means the feast of commemorating the martyrs and we do not commemorate the martyrs once a year, but it is as if we commemorate them every day. If those amongst you read the Synaxarium you will find that every day it says, "In this day the Church commemorates..." and inevitably they contain a number of martyrs.


Do we sometimes feel that God has abandoned us? That His plans for us have gone awry? In the following poem, I beleive God wants to speak His care for us and His desire to free us from despair. Read the scriptural passages given and note your feelings as to what Our Loving God and Father is saying to us in them.
