His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II Celebrates the Holy Qurbono in St. Gabriel Church in Mount Lebanon
On Sunday August 3rd, 2014, His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II celebrated the Holy Qurbono (Divine Liturgy) in St. Gabriel Church in Ajaltoun – Mount Lebanon on the occasion of the Feast day of the patron of the church, St. Gabriel.

Upon his arrival, His Holiness was received at the outer entrance of the church by the music band of the Lebanese Syriac Scouts and entered the church in a procession.

His Holiness was assisted in the Holy Qurobo by their Eminences: Mor Dionysius Jean Kawak, Patriarchal Office Director and Mor Chrysostomos Mikhael Shemoun, Director of the Patriarchal Benevolent Institutions in Atchaneh. Were present also their Eminences: Mor Theophilus George Saliba Archbishop of Mount Lebanon and Tripoli, Mor Athanasius Aphrem Barsoum, Mor Philoxenus Matta Shemoun, Mor Timotheos Thomas Archbishop of Kottayam, Mor Clemis Daniel Kourieh Metropolitan of Beirut, and Mor Timotheos Matthew Patriarchal Secretary for Indian Affairs. His Excellency Mor John Jihad Battah also attended as representative of His Beatitude Mor Ignatius Youssef III Younan, Syriac Catholic Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, accompanied by Rev. Fr. Aphrem Semaan, Secretary of His Beatitude. The Holy Qurobo was attended by many politicians, public figures and activists from the area.

During the Holy Qurobo, His Eminence Archbishop George Saliba spoke in Syriac and Arabic welcoming His Holiness and the accompanying delegation. He then spoke about Mor Gabriel, his life and his time. He emphasized on the election of His Holiness Mor Ignatius Aphrem II in these difficult and sensitive times where Christians are persecuted in their homelands and need a strong father who unites them and leads them. His Eminence pledged to offer support and obedience to His Holiness.

His Holiness spoke in turn and thanked His Eminence Archbishop Saliba and the faithful of St. Gabriel Church. He congratulated them on the occasion of the Feast of the patron of the Church, St. Gabriel. In his sermon, His Holiness also spoke of the saintly life of Mor Gabriel and pointed out that he lived in a period when persecutions were numerous. These persecutions resemble those we are witnessing today especially in Mosul. His Holiness resented the silence of the international community in the face of the crimes committed against Christians in the Middle East. He also encouraged the Syriac Lebanese to join the public sphere and demanded the politicians to elect a President who is able to stop the growth of the crisis in Lebanon.
At the end of his sermon, His Holiness blessed the faithful with the relics of Mor Gabriel.

After the Holy Qurbono, His Holiness and the archbishops received the people in the Hall of Beth Suryoye (House of the Syriacs). Afterwards, Mor Gabriel Association invited them to a banquet in honor of His Holiness in a local restaurant.
