Great Lent is a season to rediscover God through prayer, says Bishop Daniel Findikyan in a new video message. He calls on the faithful of the Eastern Diocese to rediscover the source of divine hope that has brought inner strength to generations of Armenian Christians.
The Diocesan Primate reminds us that Lent has always been a time for inner reflection and conversion. But this particular year holds special meaning for the Armenian people, who have endured a time of great suffering, injustice, and loss.
Bishop Daniel urges the faithful to take time out of each day for the duration of Lent, to pray and draw closer to God. As an aid to that daily practice, the Eastern Diocese has prepared a Daily Prayer Rule for Great Lent, in Armenian and English, as a guide to communal prayer.
Throughout the season, we encourage our people to speak to the Lord from their hearts in a united voice, and thereby contribute to Building Up the Body of Christ.
