The Papal Encyclical for the Glorious Feast of Nativity 2015
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit One God. Amen.
I congratulate you my beloved for the Glorious Nativity feast and the beginning of the New Year 2015. I hope you to have a new year full of blessings, goodness, love, joy and peace. In fact, I am so happy to communicate with you through this message to the all the beloved at every Coptic Orthodox Church all over the world, every family, all youth, all servants, the board of the church, all children and all brethren.
When God created humanity, He intended them to be in continuous communication. He wanted them to be the crown of creation. After creating all things first, He created the king of all creation on earth. Man, having the breath of God, was the great creation of God. But sin came and humiliated him and cast him away from what God planned for him. Since the sin of Adam and Eve, our first parents, humanity came into struggle with all aspects of sin in their lives.
Incarnation Of the Logos
“On the Incarnation” - By Saint Athanasius
For the solitary of mankind is such that, by virtue of the Logos’indwelling in a single human body, the corruption which goes with death has lost its power over all. You know how it is when a great king enters a large city and dwells in one of its houses. Because of his dwelling in that single house, the whole city is honoured and enemies and robbers cease to bother it. Even so is it with the King of us all. He has come into our country and dwelt in one body amidst the many. In consequence, the enemy’s plans against mankind have been foiled and the corruption of death, which formerly held them in its power, has simply ceased to be. For the human race would have completely perished if the Lord and Saviour of us all, the Son of God, had not come among us to put an end to death.
