GREAT LENT (MEDZ BAHK)
SUNDAY OF THE ADVENT (COMING)

(Jashou Sharagan (Midday Hymn)

You foretold the mystery of Your coming through the prophets of Israel, who You chose after Moses; they spoke through the Holy Spirit in many different examples;
O Savior, grant us mercy and forgiveness of our sins.

When the latter years drew near just as the seers had announced, You, our Saviour, arrived in the fullness of time and appeared among men having put on the form of a servant; O Savior, grant us mercy and forgiveness of our sins.

On the sixth day You created Adam in the lordly image; but he did not keep the commandment and was divested of the robe; wherefore You, O new Adam, visited the lost one during the sixth age; O Savior, grant us mercy and forgiveness of our sins.

Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and always and unto the ages of ages , Amen.

O temple of light without shadow and bride-chamber of ineffable Word, who   removed the grievous curse on Eve, our first mother; implore your only-begotten Son, the mediator of reconciliation with the Father, that He may please to take away from us all disorder and give peace to our souls.

******************************************************************
(To be recited by all at the end of the Church Service)

O Lord and Master of my life
take from me the spirit of laziness, faint-heartedness,
misguided ambition, and idle talk.
But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience,
and love to your servant.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own errors
and not to judge my brother;
For You are blessed unto the aged of ages, Amen.
(A prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian, a church Father.
Many people use this prayer as a Lenten devotion,
to be said and meditated upon several times a day)

 

 

Scripture Readings for Sunday, March 18th.
 

Gospel Reading 
(Matthew 22:34-23:39)

When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him.  “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?”  He said to him, ” ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”  Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question:  “What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.”  He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying, ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet” ‘?  If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?” No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples,  “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat;  therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practice what they teach.  They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to lift a finger to move them. They do all their deeds to be seen by others; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long.  They love to have the place of honor at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, and to have people call them rabbi.  But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one   teacher, and you are all students.  And call no one your father on earth, for you have one Father–the one in heaven.  Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Messiah.  The greatest among you will be your servant.  All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted. “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you lock people out of the kingdom of   heaven. For you do not go in yourselves, and when others are going in, you stop them.  Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cross sea and land to make a single convert, and you make the new    convert twice as much a child of hell as yourselves. “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the sanctuary is bound by nothing, but whoever swears by the gold of the sanctuary is bound by the oath.’  You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the sanctuary that has made the gold sacred?  And you say, ‘Whoever swears by the altar is bound by nothing, but whoever swears by the gift that is on the altar is bound by the oath.’  How blind you are! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred?  So whoever swears by the altar, swears by it and by everything on it;  and whoever swears by the sanctuary, swears by it and by the one who dwells in it;  and whoever swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by the one who is seated upon it. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. It is these you ought to have practiced without neglecting the others.  You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel! “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.  You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may become clean.  “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which on the outside look beautiful, but inside they are full of the bones of the dead and of all kinds of filth.  So you also on the outside look righteous to others, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous,  and you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’  Thus you testify against yourselves that you are descendants of those who murdered the prophets.  Fill up, then, the measure of your ancestors.  You snakes, you brood of vipers! How can you escape being sentenced to hell?  Therefore I send you prophets, sages, and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town,  so that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.  Truly I tell you, all this will come upon this generation.  “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!  See, your house is left to you, desolate.  For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the  Lord.’

Far Programs
Syrian Woman Opens Her Own Bakery Thanks to FAR’s Small Business Assistance Program!

 

 

Many people may not see beyond Lousig Barsumian’s quiet temperament. Indeed, her bright mind, inexhaustible energy, ability to plan and think of every detail, and her purposefulness may not all be revealed at first glance.

Lousig, 35, was born and raised in Syria. Six years ago, she left on a 10-day vacation to Armenia with her husband Arman, and their then three-year-old daughter, Alik. They decided to stay forever.

“On the third day of the trip, my husband decided that we would not go back,” recalled Lousig. In Syria, Arman, 38, had been a silversmith, and the area where his shop was located had already been hit hard by the war. They decided that it wasn’t reasonable for the family to return. They left all of their property in Aleppo, as it wasn’t possible to transport it to Armenia due to the war. Lousig’s wedding rings, however, which she had left in Syria for the trip, were later sent to her by her family. From that day on, they began their new life in Armenia—searching for jobs, a kindergarten, and a place to live.

“Three months later, I found a job as an assistant to an accountant, but it was tough as it was very different from the practices I knew in Syria. When I got pregnant with my son, I stopped working,” said Lousig, a professional accountant who had worked for 12 years at one of the leading interior design companies in Syria. When her son turned one, she was able to busy herself with her second craft—making and selling jewelry.

“I was making bijous (fancy, hand-made accessories) for 12 years in Syria. First, it was a hobby. Then it became a serious job. I was mostly working with beads, and I even gave classes. I also wanted to cook professionally, but this was a long-range plan,” said Lousig, with a warm smile. In Armenia, she has attended five different culinary courses organized by UNHCR and other organizations. “I learned Armenian and French cuisine, baking…. Yet, I found it difficult to start a business.”

The different organizations then helped Lousig to start. To make sure that taking culinary training was not a waste of time they recommended her to their partners. Soon, the lunch orders started to come in. Then people wanted cakes, which is what she most loves to make.

Nine months ago, Lousig registered her family catering company and bakery, which she currently runs out of her home, as Moon Bakery. Just a few days later, she found out that she received a grant and a zero-interest loan from FAR’s Small Business Assistance Program. She used the financial support to purchase a refrigerator, an oven, a mixer, and various containers and cake decorating equipment.

The program, which started in 2016, has already supported 17 Syrian-Armenian business owners, three of whom, including Lousig, are women, thus helping to lay a foundation for their economic integration in Armenia.

“If I get an order for a hard-to-cook cake, it makes me happy since I’m always up for the challenge,” said Lousig. She tries to make her cakes and biscuits as unique as possible as a way to try and develop her niche within the huge variety of similar businesses in Yerevan.

She also continues to help her husband, who was the first Syrian-Armenian to start selling silver at Vernisage market in Yerevan. Lousig designs silver jewelry that her husband later has crafted by local jewelers, and which are then exhibited and sold both in Armenia and abroad.

“In Syria, it was enough for just one person to work and help a large family to live a decent life. Yet, I can’t just sit around and do nothing. I would work as an accountant and would make handmade accessories on the side. I love working. Yet, here, in Armenia, you must work to live. Good thing that the number of orders I receive keeps increasing over time,” she said. Lousig is persistent now, and the family will stay in Armenia. “It was easy for us to set up. It was difficult to get things working and ensuring the means to make a living. Now, it’s become our usual life.”

On the eve of International Women’s Day, Lousig wishes all women good health and calls them to always create something of their own.

We at FAR are so proud to have supported this young, determined business woman. We wish all the best for you and your family, Lousig!

GREAT LENT (MEDZ BAHK)
SUNDAY OF THE JUDGE

(Jashou Sharagan (Midday Hymn)

O Christ, You have committed to Your Church a true Commandment: to pray to God continually and at all times with spirit and understanding.
You established the word of Your ordinance as an example to us through Your action of passing the night in prayer to God;  in accordance with our nature by economy;  to You are all knees bent.
Therefore we also beseech You, O Christ, grant us to stand before You always with pure prayers as do the angels in heaven.
Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and always and unto the ages of ages , Amen.
By the prayer of the Bearer of God, Your immaculate Mother, open the spiritual eyes of our hearts though Your mercy, that we may behold Your light, O Christ.
******************************************************************
(To be recited by all at the end of the Church Service)

O Lord and Master of my life
take from me the spirit of laziness, faint-heartedness,

Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own errors

For You are blessed unto the aged of ages, Amen.

Scripture Readings for Sunday, March 11th.

Gospel Reading 
(Luke 17:20 -18:14)

 

Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, “The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed;  nor will they say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you.” Then he said to the disciples, “The days are coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it.  They will say to you, ‘Look there!’ or ‘Look here!’ Do not go, do not set off in pursuit.  For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day.  But first he must endure much suffering and be rejected by this generation.  Just as it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be in the days of the Son of Man.  They were eating and drinking, and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all of them.  Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot: they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building,  but on the day that Lot left Sodom, it rained fire and sulfur from heaven and destroyed all of them  –it will be like that on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.  On that day, anyone on the housetop who has belongings in the house must not come down to take them away; and likewise anyone in the field must not turn back.  Remember Lot’s wife.  Those who try to make their life secure will lose it, but those who lose their life will keep it.  I tell you, on that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left.  There will be two women grinding meal together; one will be taken and the other left.”  Then they asked him, “Where, Lord?” He said to them, “Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”  Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor had respect for people.  In that city there was a widow who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Grant me justice against my opponent.’  For a while he refused; but later he said to himself, ‘Though I have no fear of God and no respect for anyone,  yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will grant her justice, so that she may not wear me out by continually coming.’ ”  And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.  And will not God grant justice to his chosen ones who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long in helping them?  I tell you, he will quickly grant justice to them. And yet, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?” He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt:  “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.  I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’  But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’  I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.”

**********************************************************************

 

Gospel Commentary
The second coming of Christ will be like a fire of judgment on many who are so preoccupied with their daily pursuits that they are oblivious of the things of God.  The Kingdom of God requires urgent preparedness and decisive action – a constant awareness and fervent longing for Eternal Life.  To pray and not lose heart is a vital step in this preparation and action.  During this week evaluate your preparedness for Christ’s Coming.   Do we truly want Him unconditionally or do we want Him, BUT not yet!!!

Empowering Youth to Pursue Careers in IT
!

Through a collaboration between Gyumri Information Technology Center (GTech) and Shirak Regional College, one of the region’s high schools, Shirak students can gain practical experience at GTech, thus enhancing their knowledge and competencies. About 100 Shirak students intern at GTech two to three times per week. In addition, GTech staff frequently provide advice and feedback about course curricula at Shirak.

The head of the school’s IT department, Gohar Khachatryan, is certain that practical training is invaluable and can help students to specialize. “We have been collaborating with GTech for about 10 years now, and our students are enrolled in practical training. Moreover, our instructors took development courses at the center,” said Ms. Khachatryan. More, the advanced students continue their education at GTech after they graduate. Some even stay on and work there.

Larisa Yeghoyan and Susanna Mkrtchyan are enrolled in the faculty of Software Engineering and Automated Systems at Shirak Regional College, where they are seniors. They never miss the chance to enhance their programming skills at GTech and they want to go deeper into JAVA programming, in particular.

“What matters most for us is that here at GTech we are closer to the job market. The other priority for us is that we have an opportunity to put our knowledge into practice,” said Susanna.

“Yes, the IT environment here is very encouraging. Regardless of what you want to explore, it makes you want to continue,” added Larisa Yeghoyan.

GREAT LENT (MEDZ BAHK)
(Sunday of the Steward)

(Jashou Sharagan (Midday Hymn)
O You, Who powerfully created the supernal world of intelligible beings and
established in it the princes of the fiery spirits as stewards;
we bless Your inscrutable power.

O You, Who are the rich One and have created in lordly manner the sensible
second world and placed the first man as a steward in the garden of Eden;
we bless Your inscrutable power

O You, Who mystically built Your Church most high and have ordained in it the preacher of the Word of truth as a steward; we bless Your inscrutable power

Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and always and unto the ages of ages , Amen.

O Tabernacle of Him Who cannot be borne, you carried Him, Who carries us, the creatures and you begot God in the body – Him Who was begotten of the Father without body; intercede for us, Mary, Mother of God.

******************************************************************
(To be recited by all at the end of the Church Service)

O Lord and Master of my life
take from me the spirit of laziness, faint-heartedness,
misguided ambition, and idle talk.
But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience,
and love to your servant.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own errors
and not to judge my brother;
For You are blessed unto the aged of ages, Amen.
(A prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian, a church Father.
Many people use this prayer as a Lenten devotion,
to be said and meditated upon several times a day)

 

 

Scripture Readings for Sunday, March 4th.
 

Gospel Reading 
(Luke 16:1-31)
Then Jesus said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was squandering his property.  So he summoned him and said to him, ‘What is this that I hear about you? Give me an accounting of your management, because you cannot be my manager any longer.’  Then the manager said to himself, ‘What will I do, now that my master is taking the position away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg.  I have decided what to do so that, when I am dismissed as manager, people may welcome me into their homes.’  So, summoning his master’s debtors one by one, he asked the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’  He answered, ‘A hundred jugs of olive oil.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, sit down quickly, and make it fifty.’  Then he asked another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ He replied, ‘A hundred containers of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill and make it eighty.’  And his master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly; for the children of this age are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light.  And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth so that when it is gone, they may welcome you into the eternal homes.  “Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.  If then you have not been faithful with the dishonest wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?  And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another, who will give you what is your own?  No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”  The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all this, and they ridiculed him.  So he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of others; but God knows your hearts; for what is prized by human beings is an abomination in the sight of God.  “The law and the prophets were in effect until John came; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is proclaimed, and everyone tries to enter it by force. But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one stroke of a letter in the law to be dropped.  “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and whoever marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery. “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.  And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,  who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man’s table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores.  The poor man died and was carried away by the angels to be with Abraham. The rich man also died and was buried.  In Hades, where he was being tormented, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side.  He called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in agony in these flames.’  But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your lifetime you received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in agony.  Besides all this, between you and us a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who might want to pass from here to you cannot do so, and no one can cross from there to us.’  He said, ‘Then, father, I beg you to send him to my father’s house–  for I have five brothers–that he may warn them, so that they will not also come into this place of torment.’  Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; they should listen to them.’  He said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”
******************************************************************************

Gospel Commentary

The Steward is unjust in his actions, which are not condoned, but his shrewdness is praised.  This is meant as a lesson for the “sons of light” (Christians) who ought to be as shrewd about their pursuit of godliness as unbelievers are about their business.  This week compare the amount of time and effort you give to your work to the time and effort you give to your Christian commitment.

Far Programs
Gyumri Woman Depends on Soup Kitchen for Her Daily Meal!

 

 

For seven years, Asya Galstyan has visited FAR’s Gyumri Atinizyan Senior Center every weekday morning to receive her main meal of the day. The 77-year-old has two daughters. She used to live with her youngest daughter a few years ago, before she moved to Yerevan to be near her four children who live and study in the capital.

“They rent a house in Yerevan. My grandchildren—a historian, a sociologist, a military intelligence officer, and an economist—study well. The other day, I was watching a TV program, when my grandchild, the sociologist, was on air. I was so proud!” Asya proudly exclaimed while eating her soup. “I eat my meal here at the soup kitchen. I don’t take it home; I don’t want to use extra resources to heat it up.”

Many who frequent the soup kitchen often try to bring a portion of it home for later, or take away additional portions to homebound loved ones. Asya explained that she tries to save on everything. Her sole income is now her monthly pension of about $79. Like many pensioners in Armenia, Asya lost her retirement in the Soviet collapse. “I even wash clothes by hand because I don’t have a washing machine. No new TV either. I live in a poor house, which is clean and tidy though.”

With love and devotion, Asya recollected the times with her Russian husband, who took great care of her and the family. He passed away in 1983, leaving Asya to raise their two children alone. For years, she had been working at the yarn factory in Gyumri, where she’d even received a Best Worker award at one point. “Upon graduating from the textile college, I started working on the factory floor, even though I had the skills to be a master assistant. During Soviet times the worker’s job was more profitable, and I could make enough money to support my kids,” she remarked.

Last year, Asya received a free eye examination thanks to a joint effort between Ayo! and the Armenian Eye Care Project (AECP). Then she had surgery for her glaucoma. She is hopeful that she will soon fully recover her vision and be able to read again.

She is grateful to FAR’s donors for extending her a helping hand. “Our cook is a master, and those who distribute the food are nice and kind, too. Thank you for everything,” she said.

FAR’s Gyumri Atinizyan Senior Center serves meals five days a week to 160 elderly.
