~Pastor’s Message~

Ask, Seek, Knock. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened”. (Matthew 7:7-8) (John 21:15-17)

Beloved in Christ, daughters and sons of the Church and inheritors of the Holy Grace:

The wise teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, prepares for us the fruitful path to His heavenly Kingdom and tells us that He awaits us at the end side of the road.

No matter how difficult, lengthy and turbulent this road might have been, seek Him constantly, ask for His guidance and pray that He may remain dwelling in His holy temple and deep within your soul. Through persistent prayers, patience and continuous knocking, He shall respond by opening the door to His Heavenly Kingdom.

Living inside the church in unity, peace and great love for one another is the perfect opportunity for God almighty to bless us with His Grace. Let us aim high towards the Heavenly Light, and continue to focus on building our church through the power of love, the love that gathers everything in His blessed name. Let us grab one another’s hand and seek Him, knock at His door, and ask for His leadership as we walk together towards a constructive and fruitful path where the Lord sits in His majestic Glory.

May the heavenly peace dwell in your heart and my God bless and protect your family.

Your humble servant in the Lord,

Father Elias Ayoub
Pastor of St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox Church in Mississauga
