The Annunciation is all about ‘Joy.’ Jesus Himself said, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” God’s peace is stronger than the joy of the world and that is what I should feel. The joy of the world has a materialistic nature, thus it is subject to vanish. St. John wrote, “that your joy might be full.” The joy of the world is not full. It is the joy of Christ that is full. In fact, joy and peace are fruits of the Holy Spirit. ~ Fr. Bishoy Kamel #annunciation #joy #rejoice #advent #nativity #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodox

“This rejoicing is not separable from grief, for indeed it is rather deeply connected with grief. The one who grieves for his own wrongdoing and confesses it is joyful. Alternatively it is possible to grieve for one’s own sins but rejoice in Christ…. On this account he says “Rejoice in the Lord.” For this is nothing if you have received a life worthy of rejoicing…. He is right to repeat himself. For since the events are naturally grievous, it is through the repetition that he shows that in all cases one should rejoice.” – St. John Chrysostom #ApostlesFast #Rejoice #RejoiceInTheLord #Coptic #Orthodox #DailyReadings #ChurchFathers

​He, who is loving, and is perpetually attached to God, would not be harmed by the violent waves, however abundant they may be, but, on the contrary, he would emerge out of them with a new strength. – St John Chrysostom . . He treated the problem of suffering not by eliminating it, but by entering through it as the Author of faith or Leader and Accomplisher of faith, so we may enter with Him under His care, following His footsteps. We hide in Him so that sufferings may have no dominion over us. He suffered because of love, thus He changed the concept of suffering. It is no more a sign of sin and Divine wrath as a fruit of rebellion, but rather a union with the Crucified Christ and fellowship with the Holy Trinity. – Fr Tadros Malaty . . #unitetohim #hedoesnteliminatesuffering #hetransformsit #rejoice #hehasovercome #dailyreadings #coptic #orthodoxy

I will rejoice in hearing Thee, not in speaking against Thee. Thou hast sinned, why defendest thou thyself? Thou wilt speak: suffer thou; hear, yield to divine words, lest thou be put to confusion, and be still more wounded: sin hath been committed, be it not defended: to confession let it come, not to defence. Thou engagest thyself as defender of thy sin, thou art conquered: no innocent patron hast thou engaged, thy defence is not profitable to thee. – Saint Augustine . #Joy #Gladness #Rejoice #CopticOrthodox #Coptic #Orthodox #DailyReadings #Psalms
