On February 28, 2010, (21 Meshir 1726 A.M.) the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria observes the Third Sunday of the Great Lent, in which we remember the Father embracing and kissing the neck of the Prodigal Son who returned to him in sincere repentance.

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 Sunday of the Great Lent.

It is available for streaming and downloading here:
