Unjust wealth - what to do?


Christ offered himself as a sacrifice, gave his life for the preparation of our eternal dwelling places, and urged us to work by our own sweat. He ordered to make a sacrifice from the funds that are formed as a result of fair work, but if they are unfair funds, they should be used for the needy or common good.
"Make friends out of unrighteous mammon." To whom was this word of Christ addressed, what parallels does it have with our life today? Rev. Fr. Ruben Zargarian speaks on this. 

Praised and glorified saint


Nowhere in the Gospels is Mary Magdalene mentioned as a harlot. The first mention of her is found in the Gospel of Luke, where she is presented as the first person among the women following Jesus. All the Evangelists refer to Magdalene. What do the Evangelists tell us about Mary Magdalene and why is she characterized as a woman of modesty?
Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this. 

The Resurrection of Christ, our testimony


The Resurrection of Christ is a historical event
 
"The Lord has risen and appeared to Peter." This is the first confession of the newly born church. There are 3 interrelated components here: the first one is the confession that Jesus is God, the second one is that Jesus is Risen, which is the commemoration of a historical event, and the third one is that he appeared to Peter. He is the witness of this event and the guarantor of the truth of that event.
 
What is the Christian's commitment to the reality of the Resurrection? Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this. 

The victory of life


Easter of Christ symbolizes the victory of life over death. Celebrating Easter means giving meaning to life. And this is possible by moving from sin to a righteous life, from falsehood to a true life, from hatred to a life of love. To celebrate means to make a transition from our fears to boldness, because to celebrate Easter and remain in fear means to distort the mystery of the holiday. Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this.

Hosanna or crown of thorns?


When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowd greeted him with recognition, and a few days later sent him to Golgotha ​​with denial. This psychology has not changed in mankind over the centuries. Osanna means help, save us. Why did the crowd shouting Ovsanna during Christ's triumphal entry deny and leave him at Golgotha?
Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this. 

The lazy and the prayer


One of the deadly sins of the church is laziness, which has a lot to do with the sin of pride. On the other hand, when you have received a gift - life, abilities, but you do not make life good, but with a self-centered impulse, you waste those abilities in enjoyment.
What good can a Christian create as a result of work, what parallels are there between work and sacrifice? Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this. 

To pray is to bare the soul


In his famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says: "When you pray, go into your room, close your door and secretly pray to the Heavenly Father." How to understand this message? This episode is often interpreted literally in different circles. According to them, Jesus preaches to pray alone. In fact, Jesus uses the word "room" in the sense of mind, heart, inner world. In other words, when you pray, even if you are in a crowd, you must be able to control your thoughts, you must concentrate. When praying, you need silence, inner silence. Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this.
 

Is God a loving father or a tyrant?


Man knows God through Jesus. He says that no one can go to God the Father without Him. Man has a wrong perception in terms of knowing God. Jesus reveals the image of God as it is. How does Christ tell about God being the true father?
Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this.

Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this.

The Holy Book. God speaks from the Altar

Lies and murder


Why are the commandments "Thou shalt not kill" and "Thou shalt not bear false witness" considered on the same level in the Decalogue? Why does Jesus call the devil a liar and a murderer? Reverend Fr. Ruben Zargaryan speaks on this.
