|Importance of this day||Fifth Thursday of Sawma Ramba|
|Engarta (Epistle Reading):||Romans 12:9-17|
|Evangalion (Gospel):||John 7:37-39|
|Prayer of the day||Jesus the Builder of Jerusalem, You came to Jerusalem at the Feast of Tabernacles, which recalls the stay in the wilderness after the Deliverance from Egypt and the giving of the covenant. You were indeed fast approaching to fulfil this in Your Paschal Mystery. As we stay in the Tabernacle of the Church after our deliverance from death and sin, and celebrate our new covenant with You, may we always live as pilgrims in this world.|

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.
