During the weeks of Great Fast, the faithful reflect on and meditate over the public life of Jesus and especially on its culmination in his passion, death and burial.

Importance of this day First Tuesday of Sawma Ramba
Read about the customs and fasting rules that St. Thomas Christians observed during Great Fast in sixteenth century:
Qeryana I (Old Testament Reading I): Genesis 1:20-2:7
Qeryana II (Old Testament Reading II): Joshua 1:16-2:11
Engarta (Epistle Reading): Romans 1:28-2:6
Evangalion (Gospel): Matthew 5:38-48
Prayer of the dayJesus the King of ages, grant us purity of heart and mind and draw us closer to You during this blessed season. By our fast, may we abstain not only from food and drink, but from jealousy, hatred, pride, selfishness and an unforgiving spirit. As Rahab protected Your messengers, hiding them on her roof, so may we conserve in our minds all good thoughts, inspirations and motivations that You send to us during these days of repentance, sheltering them from the destructive lukewarmness of the world. Then we shall glorify You, as is fitting, and praise You.
For Study, Reflection, Meditation, Celebration and Experimental Assimilation

Mysteries of Jesus' Life, Passion, Death and Burial - He came to His own - they brought Him to the Cross - thickness and darkness of human sin - "Petratha" means a looking back - a salvific call to reconciliation - repair through prayer, penance and almsgiving.

Remembrance of dear Departed Ones

We enter Great Fast commemorating our Departed ones - let us continue to keep their memory all through this season through special prayer, penance and almsgiving, which are also the best means for our sanctification.
