Message from Father Zaven Markosyan
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer to all the problems of humanity. The gospel of Jesus Christ is unique in its ability to transform people from sinners into saints.
Can you imagine what a different place this world would be if people were to love one another as Jesus commands His followers to?
Can you imagine how we could abolish hunger and suffering and misery among humanity if everyone everywhere were to love their neighbor as the love themselves? If they were to do unto others as they would have others do unto them?
It is only the gospel of Jesus Christ which can bring peace, both between God and man and between one man and another. If people around the world would accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and make Jesus their Lord and Master, there would be an end of war and strife.
O Lord our God, listen to the voice of supplications of your servants and keep unshaken the Republic of Armenia, which you restored through the grace of your mercy.
Hold out your merciful hand and bless our entire people, namely the Armenian nation, and the Armenian Church, so that a spirit of love, peace, understanding and divine worship would rest upon them. AMEN.
