Dec 28, 2013 — Elias Bejjani

Once again the Iranian-Syrian Evil Of Axis Criminals brutally assassinate a patriotic, peaceful and intellectual Lebanese dignitary.  Today, in occupied and oppressed Lebanon, the former Lebanese minister Mohamad Chatah was murdered in a massive car bomb blast that killed also and seriously injured tens of innocent citizens in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut.

Hallelujah, Jesus Has Risen

Mar 31, 2013 — Elias Bejjani

“If we have only hoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most pitiable” (Corinthians15/19)

On this holy day, of Resurrection, we are ought to be aware that for our prayers to be looked upon and heard by Almighty God, we are required to reconcile with with all others on whom we have inflicted pain and injustice, and treated them with an evil manner. To please the Lord we are required to genuinely, heartily and overtly perform all required acts of repentance for all our mischievous conducts and wrongdoings. We are required to pray and pray and pray.

Last Supper: Sacraments, Humility and Temptation

Mar 26, 2013 — Elias Bejjani

On the Thursday that comes before the “Good Friday, when Jesus was crucified, Catholics all over the world, including our Maronite Eastern Church celebrates with prayers and intercessions the “Thursday of the Holy Mysteries”,  which is also known as the “Washing Thursday “,  the “Covenant Thursday”, and the “Great & Holy Thursday”. It is the holy day feast that falls on the Thursday before Easter that commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with His 12 Apostles as described in the gospel. It is the fifth day of the last Lenten Holy Week, that is followed by the, “Good Friday”, “Saturday Of The Light and “Easter Sunday”.

Palm Sunday: Faith, Victory and Joy

Mar 23, 2013 — Elias Bejjani

Those who do not witness for the truth because of selfishness and earthly calculations, as well as those who are cowardice, fearful, resort to compromise and cajoling, and bend for the same reasons, all those are actually detached from Jesus and from the sense and core of genuine Christianity. Jesus never ever compromised on any righteous principle. He loudly, openly and straightforwardly preached His Godly message to every one who was ready to hear, including all those in key authority position; the Pharisees, the scribers, the tax collectors, the rulers etc. He rebuked them stridently and pinpointed their flagrant infringements on God’s law.  His fascinated response to the Pharisees who asked Him to muffle His disciples while entering Jerusalem is an everlasting map road and a solid pillar for courage, freedom of expression and witnessing for what is righteous and Godly.

Lebanon, Maronities And Saint Maroun

Feb 8, 2013 — Elias Bejjani

Fouad Afram Boustani, (1904- 1994), the Lebanese Maronite historian described the Maronite denomination as, a faith of intelligence, an identification of life, a solid belief in Catholicism, a love for others, an ongoing struggle for righteousness, a mentality of openness on the whole world, and on its different civilizations, and a vehicle for martyrdom. The Maronites established the state of Lebanon and made it an oasis for the persecuted in the middle East. They believed and practiced multiculturalism and pluralism. They created with the help of other minorities in the Middle East the unique nation of Lebanon.

God Bless The New Coptic Pope Tawdros

With great joy, faith, hope and thanks to the gracious Almighty God, we extend our genuine and heartily felt Congratulation to the Egyptian Coptic Christians and to all Coptic communities and congregations all over the world for the blessed heavenly choice of their new blessed Pope, Tawdros.

Ask Almighty God And You Shall Be Granted What You Ask For

Nov 3, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink”. (John 07/37)

No matter what we ask Almighty God for in our prayers, He definitely shall listen attentively to our requests and respond in the time, way, mode and manner that He sees with His great wisdom and love good, fair and appropriate for us. If we fully trust in Him, obey His Commands, and pray with faith and sincerity, there is no doubt that He will hear and come to our rescue when we call on Him.

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM): A Dead and Rotten Corpse

Aug 28, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

There is no doubt that we live in an era of global political hypocrisy par excellence. An era of deviations and corruption where criminals preach holiness and terrorists advocate for peace and tranquility. Why not, when all the criteria for all that is right and wrong have been distorted and confused. Sadly, the majority of our world rulers and politicians do not respect the intelligence, dignity, or the knowledge of the lay citizens and accordingly have no place or any slight calculations in their conduct.

Aug 24, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

Humility, not Arrogance

Aug 6, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

“He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He has put down princes from their thrones. And has exalted the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things. He has sent the rich away empty”. (Luke 01/51-54)

Woe To Those Who Strife To be Obstacles

Jul 21, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

Almighty God sees and knows everything and He is the One, who shall Judge those who are righteous as well as those who set traps for others and inflict pain on them.

Father’s Day: Gratitude Vs Ingratitude

Jun 17, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

“Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!” (Lydia M. Child, U.S. Author)

Hopefully, all men will have the blessed grace of being fathers. Being a father is a heavenly endowment, a great satisfaction, and a fulfilling Godly obligation as the Holy Bible teaches us: “Genesis 1:28 “God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it.”

The Syrian Regime’s Brutality Vs. The Free World’s Indifference

May 29, 2012 — Elias Bejjani

It is a well-known scientific fact and a proven reality that animals who are carnivorous predators do not hunt and kill their prey unless they are hungry and not because they love to kill or find a pleasure in hunting. These animals do not torture their prey but kill them on the spot within a few minutes.

A Big ‘No’ For Hypocrisy And Hypocrites

Dec 19, 2011 — Elias Bejjani

Jesus Condemns Hypocrisy and hypocrites: Matthew 23/13-15: “How terrible for you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees! You hypocrites! You lock the door to the Kingdom of heaven in people’s faces, but you yourselves don’t go in, nor do you allow in those who are trying to enter! How terrible for you, teachers of the Law and Pharisees! You hypocrites! You sail the seas and cross whole countries to win one convert; and when you succeed, you make him twice as deserving of going to hell as you yourselves are

Faith, Love, Commandments And Works

Dec 7, 2011 — Elias Bejjani

John 15/10: ” If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love”.

Do not ever be ashamed or feel guilty for having a good, loving, caring and forgiving heart. There is nothing wrong when we adopt an on going extended hand attitude with a positive approach in face of setbacks, betrayals, hardships, disappointments, enmities and all sorts of difficulties.  It is extremely righteous for each one of us to genuinely turn off any page that has been dark, painful and non functional to go on with life journey looking for what is like ourselves and not like any body else.

Deport Hezbollah’s militants and leadership to Iran

Nov 30, 2011 — Elias Bejjani

What should the Lebanese people, the Arab countries, Israel and the free world do with Hezbollah, the Iranian terrorist militia and its armed ministate, when the Syrian Assad regime falls? Some ignorant and short-sighted leaders in Lebanon are proposing that the government should buy Hezbollah’s weaponry and recruit most of its mujahedin fighters into the Lebanese army. In fact this is the most stupid, sickening, evil and fatal formula for Lebanon.

Honor Your Father And Mother

Nov 13, 2011 — Elias Bejjani

One very important concept and an extremely wise approach MUST apply and prevail when reading the Holy Bible in a bid to understand its contents and observe the Godly instructions and life guidelines that are enlisted. The concept needs to be a faith one with an open frame of mind free from questioning and challenges.
