His Holiness Pope Tawadros, A Gift of God

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Psalm 118:26, John 12:13). Thank God for H.H. Pope Tawadros II. The names Tawadros, Theodore, Nathanael and Matthew mean “Gift of God”. Best congratulations are to His Holiness and to the church for the Heavenly Father’s gift in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad” (Psalms 126:3). “Blessed be the name of the Lord From this time forth and forevermore!” (Psalms 113:2). Praise the Lord.

قداسة البابا تواضروس عطية من الله
"مُبَارَكٌ الآتِي بِاسْمِ الرَّبِّ" (مزامير 118 : 26، يوحنا 13:12). نشكر الله من أجل قداسة البابا تواضروس الثاني. ومعروف أن الأسماء تواضروس، تادرس، نثنائيل، ومتى كلها تعني "عطية الله". أطيب التهاني لقداسته وللكنيسة بعطية الأب السماوي باسم ربنا يسوع المسيح. "عَظَّمَ الرَّبُّ الْعَمَلَ مَعَنَا وَصِرْنَا فَرِحِينَ" (مزامير 126 : 3)، "لِيَكُنِ اسْمُ الرَّبِّ مُبَارَكاً مِنَ الآنَ وَإِلَى الأَبَدِ" (مزامير 113 : 2). هلليلويا.
