Speaking at New York’s St. Vartan Cathedral on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel Findikyan offered a poignant reflection on the spirit of self-sacrifice.
In the shadow of that infamous date, September 11, we offer a meditation on the reality of suffering, and the power of the Cross in Armenian Christian spirituality.
Hard though it is to believe, an entire generation has elapsed since that infamous day of 20 years ago: September 11, 2001. We offer prayers to God for His mercy, protection, and remembrance, as across our nation, people solemnly commemorate the anniversary.
It was the great religious “confab” of the 4th century: a gathering of Christian bishops from throughout the world, convened by no less an authority than the Roman Emperor Constantine I.
In an appeal to the Eastern Diocese, Diocesan Primate Bishop Daniel asks the faithful to contribute to relief efforts in Haiti and Lebanon.
