Dear beloved,

Blessing in the name of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Please let me share with you what I have read today:

ôIf evil thoughts have not been uprooted from the heart, they are bound to manifest themselves in evil actions.ö -St. Philotheos of Sinai

Pray for me as I pray for you all.

Fr. Antonious Henein

Nik, Glory to Jesus Christ!

I receive these short email messages from Father Antonious on a regular basis and find them very edifying. I recommend to everyone to email Fr. Antonious to receive them in your email as well. Fr. Antonious is one of two priests at the Holy Virgin Mary Coptic Orthodox Church in Los Angeles, CA.

In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, one of Fr. Antonious's parishioners, the Servant of God, Adel Karas, a hardworking storeowner, a husband and father, was slain by a fanatical anti-Arab bigot.

I think I will do so.

Reading this news on Adel is regrettable. Copts have enough worries in Egypt; it seems they have to contend with the same crap on this continent. Allah yirhamo.

As for the bastard responsible for his death: May God Judge him. The irony is that many Copts do not identify with the Arabic identity to begin with, in faithfulness to their cultural origins.

The fellow deserves nothing less than a meathook through his throat.

And incidentally, have you Fr.'s personal e-mail?

Samer,

If you write Fr. Antonious to his personal attention at << email@theotokos.org >> he will surely receive it and then give you his private email address "for his eyes only." He is truly an "online" Spiritual Father to go to with immediate spiritual problems and tries to make himself available to everyone who needs him.

Hypo,

This is truly so, what you say, however Fr. had the following message in his latest email. God Bless.

I will be out of the country until November 20th, 2002 and therefore will be unable to check my e-mails.

Please refrain from sending me any correspondence until my return so that my inbox may not be inundated with messages as its capacity is limited.

Thank you for your understanding!

With the disclaimer that Fr. Antonious Henein will be out of the country until Nov. 20 as Nik stated (I just received Fr. Antonious's email to this effect myself), Samer, Fr. Antonious's personal email address is << personal@theotokos.org >>.

You're very welcome, Samer.

Also, thanks for letting me know that you received the Coptic liturgical calendar. I hope that you will find it useful.

In Christ-God,
