9 March 2017, Second Thursday of Sawma Ramba
|Importance of this day||Second Thursday of Sawma Rabba|
|Engarta (Epistle Reading):||Romans 3:1-8|
|Evangalion (Gospel):||Matthew 5:33-37|
|Prayer of the day||Jesus who has done everything for us, Adam longed for the fruit of independence from You, O Giver of Life, eating out of communion with You, internalizing evil, secularizing Your creation and introducing death into it. May we renounce rebellious self-will and learn to do everything in active communion with You.|

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.
