News and Announcements
Jesus always enjoyed a good meal; we read it again and again in the Gospel. Sometimes, in Religion, there's a tendency to portray Jesus as an austere holy man opposed to the simple pleasures of everyday life. Some people who profess Him go so far as to equate faith with unrelenting asceticism and self-denial. The lack of balance puts at risk the 'love' found in community and friendship that is at the heart of the Gospel.
+ القديس أنطونيوس والإسكافي كاد القديس أنطونيوس مرة أن يقع في التكبّر، فسأل الله :من هو أعظم مني ؟ أنا الذي أصلي وأصوم على الدوام لك أيها الرب القدوس؟. نظر الرب إلى نقاوة قلبه وجهاده ،فأراه بالروح إسكافياً بسيطاً يمزج كلّ نَفَسٍ يتنفسه في عمله ونومه بالشكر والتسبيح لله. فأدرك حينها القديس أن التواضع سر الخلاص والتكبّر قمة الأهواء.
