|Support for the Romanian Properties in Jerusalem and Jericho
At the Romanian Properties in Jericho the work in progress includes the painting of the second chapel altar as well as the construction of the pilgrim’s house for Romanian pilgrims to be called the “Good Samaritan”. Those hearing Patriarch Daniel’s appeal and wishing to support it may contribute financially to the Romanian Properties in Jerusalem and Jericho in order to complete the construction work and receive Romanian pilgrims.

|THE POLICY OF “FAIT ACCOMPLI” -
IN THE CONTEXT OF OUR DIALOGUE WITH ROMANIA
In my opinion the so called ‘dialogue” between the “Vatra” Episcopate and the ROAA (the contraption brought into existence by the Romanian communists at the beginning of the fifties of the previous century) is stalled or, anyhow, no information was provided regarding any “progress” by the instruments that should do that.
PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM
O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.
Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.
Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;
for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.
Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
