His Grace Bishop Basil writes:
June 29, 2016
Beloved and Christ-loving priests, deacons, monastics and lay folk of DOWAMA:
I embrace and greet you with a holy kiss in the Name of the Lord Christ.
In the Biblical account of the feast of Pentecost (Acts 2) we read of people from a multitude of nations who heard for the very first time and "everyone in his own language" (2:6) the proclamation by the Holy Apostles of the Good News. Among those people were "Arabians" (2:11) which meant people from Rome's frontier province of Arabia Petraea (the area of modern Syria south of Damascus, the Nabataean kingdom in modern Jordan, the Sinai peninsula and the northwestern tip of modern Saudi Arabia).
