Archbishop Mouneer Hanna: We are living in a time of uncertainty, so trust in the will of God
Dr. Mouneer Hanna, Archbishop of the Province of Alexandria, of the Episcopal/Anglican Church presided over the Mass prayers in English in the All Saints Episcopal/Anglican Cathedral in Zamalek.
The church said in a statement today: The bishop ordained a lay servant and conferred the sacrament of baptism to a child
In the sermon, the Archbishop of the Archbishop said: In light of these difficult and sad times due to the pandemic, we hear about people around the world dying by the thousands and others facing the pressures of unemployment, poverty, economic depression, and travel bans, in addition to many rumors about vaccines and new strains of the virus, so we are truly living in a time of uncertainty.
And the bishop continued: Uncertainty should not lead us not to achieve the will of God in our lives, as Paul the Apostle talks about the same thing in his message to the Corinthians: Do not let the difficulties you face stop you from helping others, for despite our weaknesses we carry within us the power of Christ that illuminates our hearts and helps us overcome difficulties.
He continued: Thanks to the grace of God that He bestowed upon us, we carry on our shoulders the service of others and society around us and sacrifice ourselves for the sake of the oppressed and abandoned.
He added: We give our lives, we share the gospel message, and shine the light in the midst of the darkness of the world, as Paul the Apostle said in the second Corinthians message (4:11) 11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
