دراسة الكتاب المقدس وروحانية الكنيسة
Bible Study and Church Spirituality
دراسة الكتاب المقدس هي كل يوم اربعاء الساعة الثامنة مساء في في كنيستنا.
The Bible study was launched in 2001 during the home prayer meetings of our Melkite families in London. Since 2011, the meeting has become an independent regular activity of our parish, organized every Wednesday at our church at 8pm with Fr. Shafiq and Qassis Jean. The Bible study aims to discover the spiritual wealth of the Bible as we apply it to our life, for the Bible is the Holy Book and source of our Christian life. Our group gathers around 20 people every Wednesday, and it is open to every person seeking a deeper Christian commitment with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Marriage in the Bible and Church Teaching
Marriage is a Sacrament Instituted by God
Catechism of the Catholic Church 1603:”The intimate community of life and love which constitutes the married state has been established by the Creator and endowed by him with its own proper laws… God himself is the author of marriage.” The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes. These differences should not cause us to forget its common and permanent characteristics. Although the dignity of this institution is not transparent everywhere with the same clarity, some sense of the greatness of the matrimonial union exists in all cultures. “The well-being of the individual person and of both human and Christian society is closely bound up with the healthy state of conjugal and family life.”
