Feast of The Apostles (Petros we-Pawlos)

Happy Feast of The Apostles and martyrdom of our Fathers and Saints Petros we Pawlos!
While watching the video above, let us ask ourselves What does apostleship mean to us in this generation? How can we imitate our fathers the Apostles in their profound imitation of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

According to the scriptures, Paul was beheaded while St. Peter was crucified upside down at his own request because he said he was not worthy to be sacrificed in the same manner as Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Since the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahdo church is among the first, who accepted Christianity by the apostles themselves, we celebrate this day made holy for us by the apostles’ blood. Let us embrace what they believed, their life, their labors, their sufferings, their preaching, and their confession of faith in order to be a part of their blessings.

Glory Be to God!
Dn. Ermias
