On February 14, 2010, (7 Meshir 1726 A.M.) the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria observed the First Sunday of the Great Lent, in which our Lord teaches us, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on… But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6.25, 33).

As part of the diocese’s spiritual program during this holy season, our father, His Grace Bishop Serapion, has recorded a pastoral message for this First Sunday of the Great Lent.

It is available for streaming and downloading here:
