On February 21, 2010, (14 Meshir 1726 A.M.) the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria observes the Second Sunday of the Great Lent, in which we remember our Lord Jesus Christ overcoming temptation and evil in the wilderness as He fasted for us forty days and forty nights.

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:
