ለ 1400 ዓመታት ያህል በእስልምና የባርነት ቀንበር ስር ያሉት ግብጻውያን ክርስቲያን ወገኖቻችን የመስቀል ንቅሳትን የተማሩት ከኢትዮጵያውያን ነበር

እንኳን ለበዓለ መስቀል በሰላም ሑላችንንም አደረሰን አደረሳችሁ!!

ቅዱስ መስቀሉ መጋቢት ፲ ቀን ነበር ከተቀበረበት የወጣው። በክርስቶስ ደም የተቀደሰው ይህ ክቡር መስቀል ንግሥት ዕሌኒ መስከረም 16 ቀን 320.ም በዕጣን ጢስ ምልክት ቁፋሮ አስጀምራ መጋቢት ቀን አግኝታ በማውጣት ታላቅ ቤተመቅደስ ጎልጎታ ላይ ሠርታ በክብር አስቀመጠችው ይህ መስቀልም ከዚያ ዕለት ጀምሮ እንደ ፀሐይ እያበራ ድውይ እየፈወሰ አጋንንት እያባረረ ልዩ ልዩ ተአምራት እየሰራ ሙት እያነሳዕውር እያበራ ተአምራቱን እስክ ዛሬ ድረስ ቀጠለ

የመስቀሉን ኃይለኛነት የተገነዘቡት አባቶቻችንና እናቶቻችን፣ ወንድሞቻችንና እኅቶቻችንን በግንባራቸው፣ በአንገታቸውና በእጃቸው ላይ የመስቀል ንቅሳት አድርገው ስናይ በሞኝነትና በግብዝነት እንደ ባላገርነት አድርገን ስንቆጥረው ነበር፤ አውሬው በልጆቹ አድሮ እያታለለን ነበርና፦

ለክርስቶስ መስቀል ጠላቶች ሆነው ይመላለሳሉና ብዙ ጊዜ ስለ እነሱ አልኋችሁ አሁንም እንኳ እያለቀስኩ እላለሁ መጨረሻቸው ጥፋት ነው ሆዳቸው አምላካቸው ነው ክብራቸው በነውራቸው ነው ሐሳባቸው ምድራዊ ነው” [ፊል. 318-19]

አሁን የንቅሳት ባህል (ለማይጠቅመው ነገር ሁሉ) በመላው ዓለም እንደ ጉድ በተስፋፋበት ዘመን፤ ይህ የመስቀል ንቅሳት ማድረግ ምን ያህል ቆንጆና ብልህነት የተሞላበት ተግባር እንደሆነ እየተገነዘብነው ነው።

ለዘመናት በመሀመዳውያን በከፋ መልክ የሚበደሉት ግብጻውያን ክርስቲያን ወንደሞቻችን እና እህቶቻችን መስቀሌን ከአንገቴ ቢበጥሱ ከቆዳየ ላይ ግን ፍቀው አያወጡትምበሚል ጽኑ የክርስቲያናዊ መንፈስ እጆቻቸው ላይ መስቀል ይነቀሳሉ፤ በዚህም ፀረክርስቶስ በዳዮቻቸውን ድል ነስተዋል፤ በዚህም እስከ ዕለተ ሞታቸው ድረስ ክርስቲያን መሆናቸው ተለይተው እንዲታወቁ አድርገዋልእግዚአብሔር የተመሰገነ ይሁን!

አንዳንድ ማስረጃዎች እንደሚጠቁሙን የግብጻውያኑ የመስቀል ንቅሳት ለመጀመሪያ ጊዜ የተገኘው በስምንተኛው መቶ ክፍለ ዘመን ነበር። በወቅቱ መነኮሳት ነበሩ እጆቻቸውን በክርስትና ምልክቶች ማተም የጀመሩት፤ እነርሱም ይህን የተማሩት ከኢትዮጵያውያን ክርስትያኖች መሆኑ ይታወቃል

የአውሬውን ምልክት ለመከላከል ይቻለን ዘንድ ሁላችንም በቀኝ እጃችን ወይም በግምባራችን ላይ [ራዕይ 10: 413:16] የመስቀል ንቅሳት የምናደርግበት ዘመን ላይ የደረስን ይመስለኛል።

American Christians Wear Orange in Solidarity With Those Persecuted For Faith

Hanna Asaad, front, is among of group of Egyptian Coptic Christians marching toward the White House on Tuesday in remembrance of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians recently beheaded in Libya by Islamic State.  

A group of Egyptian Coptic Christians, including Amer Sabet, holding a cross, march from the White House toward the U.S. Capitol in remembrance of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians recently beheaded in Libya by Islamic State.

Hanna Asaad, a network engineer in Fairfax, Va., grew up in the village of Aloor in southern Egypt. He was able to immigrate to the United States several years ago, but his best friend and cousin, Samuel Alham, sought work as a laborer in nearby Libya, like many other Coptic Christians in the impoverished region.

Shortly after Christmas, Alham and 20 of his fellow Coptic laborers were kidnapped by Islamic State militants in Libya. In mid-February, they were marched to a Mediterranean beach in handcuffs and orange prison jumpsuits. Then they were beheaded with knives as a video camera recorded the gruesome scene.

On Tuesday, Asaad, 29, joined 20 protesters who donned orange jumpsuits and stood outside the White House, then knelt with their hands behind their backs. Behind them, other demonstrators held up photographs of the real victims and the blood-red waves where their headless corpses were thrown.

I kept calling my cousin and telling him he had to leave Libya, but there was no safe way out,” Asaad said. “The militants came looking for Christians and then took them away. They murdered my cousin, my nephew and my classmates. Someday soon they will start murdering people in this country.”

About 50 demonstrators, who marched slowly from the White House to Capitol Hill under police escort, demanded that U.S officials take more aggressive action against the Islamic State and other radical Islamist groups, including Boko Haram in Nigeria and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Obama, Obama, did you see? Christian blood in the sea,”they chanted. 

For Copts in the Washington area and across the United States — mostly a population of educated, professional émigrés — the seaside slaughter was an especially horrific incident in a history of increasing persecution that the Christian minority group has faced in its native Egypt. Recent attacks included the bombing of a church on New Year’s Day, 2011, in the city of Alexandria, which left 21 worshippers dead and 79 injured.

Meanwhile, as militant Islamist ideology spreads, Christian groups are confronting attacks in other parts of the Middle East and South Asia.
