ኮፕት ወገኖቻችን በሳዑዲ አረቢያ ታሪክ ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ የቅዳሴ ሥነ ስርዓት በይፋ ለማካሄድ በቁ

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on December 6, 2018

በሳዑዲ አረቢያ ክርስቲያኖች እስከ እዚህ ዕለት ድረስ በአደባባይ ጸሎት ማድረግ አይፈቀደላቸውም ነበር፡

የኮፕት ቤተሰቦች በተሰበሰቡበት ቤታቸው ውስጥ ቅዳሴውን በይፋ እንዲመሩ የተፈቀደላቸው ሊቀ ጳጳስ አቫ ሞርኮስ ናቸው። ለቅዳሴው ሥነ ስርዓት የሚያስፈልጋቸውን የቤተክርስቲያን ቅዱሳን ዕቃዎች ከግብጽ ይዘው እንዲገቡ ተፈቅዶላቸው ነበር።

ምንምን እንኳን የሳዑዲ ባቢሎንን ነገር ሁሉ በጥንቃቄና ከጥርጣሬ ጋር መመልከት ቢኖርብንም፤ ይህ ግን ጥሩ እርምጃ ነው። ለአዳም ዘር መቅሰፍት ይሆን ዘንድ በዲያብሎስ የተላከው እስልምና ቀስ በቀስ ከምድር መጥፋት ይኖርበታል።

First Ever Coptic Mass Celebrated In Saudi Arabia

The mass led by Egyptian Bishop Ava Morkos of Shoubra El Kheima came following an invitation sent by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the Coptic clergy of Egypt earlier in March.

The mass was held in a house of a Copt in Saudi Arabia, where Coptic families gathered to participate and celebrate the religious occasion. The bishop brought with him required items from Cairo especially for the mass.

Holding the mass is considered by many as the first step that paves the way for more freedoms for Christians in a country where non-Muslims are not allowed to practice their faith openly.

This comes at a time that is believed to be critical for Saudi Arabia and its Crown Prince, who is facing accusations of involvement in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul.

As part of his efforts to achieve more “reforms” in the conservative Kingdom, MBS had allowed women to start driving after a 30-year ban. He also launched a governmental committee that is responsible for holding concerts and entertainment activities in the Kingdom.
