I am Nineveh that great city. Come let me tell you about myself, and my lands and my people. Come let me tell you how I was and what I have become. Come let me tell you, for you can become one of my people, dressed in glory as they are and honoured with them. Come closer to me and I will tell you how I was naked and we were smothered with blood, the blood of sin... I and my people we did not just taste sin but we drank it and drowned in it.

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.

Read the scriptural passages given and note your feelings as to what Our Loving God and Father is saying to us in them.
