Զիս ղրկող Հօրս կամքն է, որ չկորսնցնեմ ո՛չ իսկ մէկը բոլոր անոնցմէ՝ որ ինծի տուաւ, այլ յարուցանեմ զայն վերջին օրը: Հօրս կամքը հետեւեալն է. - Ով որ տեսնէ Որդին եւ հաւատայ անոր՝ յաւիտենական կեանք պիտի ունենայ, եւ ես պիտի յարուցանեմ զայն վերջին օրը:
 
Հրեաները սկսան տրտնջալ իրեն դէմ, որովհետեւ ըսած էր՝ թէ «Ես եմ երկինքէն իջած հացը», եւ կը հարցնէին. - Այս մարդը Յովսէփի որդին՝ Յիսուսը չէ՞, որուն հայրն ու մայրը կը ճանչնանք. ինչպէ՞ս ուրեմն կըսէ՝ «Ես երկինքէն իջայ»:
 
Յիսուս անոնց պատասխանեց. - Կը բաւէ՛ դուք ձեզի քրթմնջէք: Ոեւէ մէկը չի կրնար ինծի գալ՝ եթէ զիս ղրկող Հայրը զայն ինծի չբերէ. եւ ես պիտի յարուցանեմ զայն վերջին օրը: Մարգարէութիւններուն մէջ գրուած է. «Ամէն մարդ Աստուծմէ սորված պիտի ըլլայ»: Ով որ Հօրմէս կը լսէ եւ իրմէ կը սորվի՝ ինծի կու գայ: Ոչ ոք Հայրը տեսած է, բացի անկէ՝ որ Աստուծմէ է, որովհետեւ միայն անիկա տեսած է Հայրը: Ու ես կ՛ըսեմ ձեզի, թէ ով որ ինծի հաւատայ՝ յաւիտենական կեանք ունի:

THIRD SUNDAY AFTER NATIVITY
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN (6:39-47)
 
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.”
 
Then the Jews began to complain about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” They were saying, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” Jesus answered them, “Do not complain among yourselves. No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, ’And they shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me.  Not that anyone has seen the father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father.  Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life.

Dear Der Mesrob,

Thank you for always welcoming my son Robert Nazarian into your community. It give me great joy when he is able to make the trip to New York to attend Badarak with you. Again he shared with me how warm you and the entire community are to him.

Thank you so much for your prayers for my sister Christine White. As you might imagine, it is hard to be so far away while she is going through such a difficult time. However, I know that prayer is the most important thing that I can be doing for her right now. I deeply appreciate your prayers. She will be undergoing about 9 hours of surgery on Thursday. If you can, please remember her in your prayers on Thursday.

I thank God for your friendship and pray that He continues to shower you and your family with blessings.

Harold Nazarian
