Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate – 18/12/17

His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II celebrated the Holy Qurobo at St. Risha Church in Latakia. His Holiness was assisted by His Eminence Mor Selwanos Boutros Al-Nehmeh, Archbishop of Homs and Hama.

Very Rev. Raban Boutros Kassis, Patriarchal Delegate in Aleppo, Lattakia and Environs, as well as priests, deacons, and faithful, participated in the Holy Qurobo.

In his sermon, His Holiness spoke about the righteousness of Joseph, and how he refused to expose her because of her pregnancy, not to harm her; his humility then and righteousness led God to choose him to be the raiser of Jesus.

At the end, His Holiness expressed his joy to visit his beloved spiritual children in the blessed city.
