HOLY VIRGIN MARY, MOTHER OF GOD

Muire, mar mháthair Íosa, an Máthair Dé agus an Theotokos

Bean Ghiúdach as Nazarat na Gailíle ba ea Muire, Naomh Muire, an Mhaighdean Mhuire, Muire Mhaighdean nó Muire Ógh, máthair Íosa agus bean chéile Iósaf. D’aithin an Tiomna Nua í [Mt 1:16,18-25] [Lk 1:26-56] [2:1-7] mar mháthair Íosa le lámh Dé.

Thug na soiscéil canónta na Matha agus Lúcás tuairisc ar Mhuire mar mhaighdean.

Thosaíonn an Tiomna Nua cuntas beatha Muire leis an teachtaireacht an Aingil, nuair a thaispeáin an tArdaingeal Gaibriéil agus fhógair a roghnúchán diagach a bheith ina máthair Íosa. Maíonn traidisiún eaglaise agus luath scríbhinní neamh-bhíobalta gur scothaosta a bhí a tuismitheoiri, Naomh Joachim agus Naomh Áine. Taifeadaíonn an Bíobla róil Muire sa tarluithe tábhachtach sa bheatha Íosa, as a ghiniúint go a Dheascabháil.

Creideann Críostaíthe go bhfuil Muire, mar mháthair Íosa, an Máthair Dé agus an Theotokos.

Tugtar urraim di Muire ó shin an Ré Aspalda.

JOURNEY TO ORTHODOXY

His Beatitude Theodore II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa arrived to South Africa on January 19 to take part in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Archdiocese of the Cape of Good Hope (1968-2018). The primate’s mission trip also included visitations to Namibia and Kenya.

The patriarch, accompanied by Metropolitan Damascene of Johannesburg and Pretoria and Bishop Nikodimos of Nitria, also visited the newly-built Monastery of Sts. Nicholas the Wonderworker, Nektarios of Aegina, and Paisios the Athonite near Hartbeespoort, 40 miles north of Johannesburg, reports AgionOros.

The festivities were also attended by the Ambassador and General Consul of Greece in South Africa, Church and public figures, and a host of clergy and faithful.

There are currently five nuns laboring in the monastery. The spiritual father for the holy habitation is Archimandrite Apostol Apostolakis, who also founded two other convents in Kenya and Tanzania.

During his visit, the Alexandrian patriarch officially enthroned the first abbess of the South African monastery, Nun Ortodoxia.

During his sermon, the patriarch stressed that monasticism “is not disdain for the world, but an exhortation for its transfiguration—a transfiguration in Christ, and for salvation.”

Saint Stylianos de Paphlagonie, Asie Mineure

26 Novembre

Choisi par Dieu depuis le sein de sa mère, Saint Stylianos se détacha des illusions de ce monde, distribua ses biens aux pauvres et embrassa la vie monastique. Il s’illustra avec vaillance dans les combats de l’ascèse et, au bout de quelques années de vie commune, partit pour mener la vie solitaire dans une grotte. Il y recevait sa nourriture de la main d’un Ange et devint bientôt intercesseur efficace auprès de Dieu pour le soulagement des malades: en particulier pour la guérison des maladies infantiles et pour la délivrance des femmes restées stériles. C’est dans ces circonstances que la prière du Saint reste toujours efficace pour ceux qui l’invoquent avec foi de nos jours.
