Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who performed miracles for our spiritual fathers in those days at this season.
Jesus said: Whoever wishes to be first among you shall be the servant of all.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.
"And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God, the Almighty, and the Lamb, are its temple. And the city has no need of the sun or of the moon to shine upon it...
For the Glory of the Lord has illumined it,
...and its lamp is the Lamb.
And the nations shall walk by its light, and the kings of this earth shall bring their glory into it.
And in the daytime (for there shall be no night there) its gates shall never be closed;
and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it; and nothing unclean and no one who practices abomination and lying shall ever come into it,
but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life."
May His Peace be upon us all as we wait and serve Him until then.
