On March 14, 2010, (5 Baramhat 1726 A.M.) the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria observes the Fifth Sunday of the Great Lent, in which we profess our Lord Jesus Christ as the source of all healing for our bodies and souls alike. We also remember Bethsaida as a symbol of our baptism by which we are healed of our illnesses.

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:
