"The heavens declare

knowledge. There is no
speech nor language,

St. Paul,
Apostle of
Letter Writing
With today's rapid and
varied styles of
communication St. Paul
would have a field day with
his extensive contacts for the
growth and development of
the Church. The awesome
ease of electronic
communication would hold
spellbound this inveterate
letter writer of the New
Testament
However, the demanding
and rigorous conditions of
letter writing in St. Paul's day
in no way diminished his
passion for this labor of love.
Elements of LetterWriting
in AncientTimes
Just what did it take to
write a letter in the era of the
New Testament's formation?
The biographical study, Paul
the Apostle, published in the
mid-19th century by the noted
Italian scholar Giuseppe
Ricciotti, details some aspects
of ancient letter writing..
Usually letters were written
on parchment, which was
worked leather, or on papyrus.


By Brother John
Samaha, S.M.
Papyrus was a composition of
thin, crossed strips of an
Egyptian river reed. It varied
in thickness and smoothness,
and was formed into sheets
measuring about 10 or 12
inches wide. Neither
parchmlunent nor papyrus
offered the smooth writing
surface we expect in paper
today.
A pen made from a split
reed or a goose quill. The
sticky ink was a mixture of
carbon and glue or gum. With
rough quality papyrus writing
was very difficult and the
scribe struggled intently to
form each letter.
With a short letter, such as
Paul's message to Philemon
',(25 verses), the letter was

Prayer
Hazrat reiterated about
Prayer-Dua and Salat:
1. A strange thing
happened in the desert of
Arab land. Millions of people
gave up evil deeds and tumed
to righteousness, just by the
prayer of the Holy Prophet of
Islam, peace be on him. It
was the miracle of the prayer.
And a sign for all the time to
come that Allah listens to the
supplications of His servants
are steadfast and never get
tired of praying to Almighty
Allah.'
(Roohani Khazain, Vol.
16, P. 15)
2. What weapons did the
Prophets of Allah had that
people gave up evil deeds and
turned towards righteousness.
It was only the weapon of
prayer. (Ibid, P. 16)
3. Worship is another


By Dr. Qazi Muhammad
Barkatullah
name of love. The honor of
Islam should stem from heart,
otherwise hollow worship is
of no use. Actually, people are
polytheists. Some of them
love money that is they
worship money and make
their dependance on money
and not on Almighty Allah.
Allah's servant is the one who
observes moderation in all
wordly affairs. In fact, they
depend on Allah and seek
refuge with Him. (Malfoozat
Vol. 2, P. 255)

The course Abdul-Aziz
takes at al-Shaqaiq
Society in the western
seaport of Jiddah is just
one of the ways social
organizations are trying to
help curb the number of
divorces, which has
grown 20 percent in
recent years, according to
government estimates.
While courts and
marriage officials register
around 70,000 marriage
contracts annually, they
also process more than
13,000 official divorce
papers, said the Planning


Ministry, according to
media reports.
Fahad al-Yahya, a
psychiatrist who counsels
married couples,
estimates at least 30
percent of Saudi first
marriages end in divorce.
The rate is comparable to
the United States where,
according to the National
Center for Health
Statistics, 33 percent of
first marriages are
disrupted either by
separation or divorce.
So alarming is the
problem that Saudi
newspapers often carry
stories discussing the
issue, citing examples of

We are working hard to put
together a Mid-Winter
Conference that you will
long remember. There's so
much to do and see that we

our goal to make you feel at

catch up with old friends, but
keep those of you who like

It starts with a great Hotel

enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is
clean, enduring forever:
the judgments of the Lord
are true and righteous
altogether. More to be
desired are they than
gold: sweeter also than
honey and the
honeycomb. Moreover by
them is thy servant
warned: and in keeping of
them there is great
reward." Psalm 19:7-11
"Who hath directed the
Spirit of the Lord, or
being his counsellor hath
taught him? With whom
took he counsel, and who
instructed him, and
taught him in the path of
judgment, and taught him
knowledge, and shewed
to him the way of
understanding? Behold,


the nations are as a drop
of a bucket, and are
counted as the small dust
of the balance: behold, he
he taketh up the isles as a
very little thing. And
Lebanon is not sufficient
to bum, nor- the beasts
thereof sufficient for a
burnt offering. All nations
before him are as
nothing; and they are
counted to him less than
nothing, and vanity. To
whom then will ye liken
God? or what -likeness
will ye compare to him?"
Isaiah 40: 13-18
"To whom then will ye
liken me, or shall I be
equal? saith the Holy
One. Lift up your eyes on
high, and behold who
hath created these things,
that bringeth out their

folded, then sealed with wax
or pitch. The name of the
intended receiver was written
on the outside along with the
name of the bearer and the
intermediate stops. A long
letter would be rolled and
enclosed in a sealed envelope,
or wrapped in another sheet of
papyrus, then tied with a small
cord and sealed.
Composing and
Handwriting
The actual composition
and writing of the letter posed
some difficulty. Determining
the content of the message,
plus the length of the text,
required considerable effort,


writing space, and time. On
average each papyrus sheet
held about 72 words. To write
threesyllables required about
one minute, and an hour's
work produced about 72
words.
St Paul's earliest letter, the
oldest text in the New
Testament, is the First Letter to
the Thessalonians. Scholars
estimate that this required
about 110 sheets of papyrus
and 20 hours of writing. His
letter to .the Romans, his
longest, needed 50 sheets and
100 hours to complete. His
shortest letter contains 335
words to Philemon, but
required three sheets and
more than four hours. Letter

5. No Prophet has come
into this world that he did not
emphasize the significance of
prayer. Prayer serves as a
strong link betweenAlmighty
Allah and Hs servant So the
Prayer should be offered
earnestly and sincerely.
When a person offers prayer
the core of the heart, he or she
feels spiritual enlightenment
and a Bliss that is beyond
explanation. This spiritual
elevation should be felt with
experience in this matter.

broaden the appeal of the
campaign and introduce
the St. Jude mission to as
many people as possible.
Raising awareness of St.
Jude is a key component
to the fund-raising
program.
"The awareness
created by Thanks and
Giving is unique and
hugely important
strategically," said
Thomas. "Our visibility
and the public awareness
of St. Jude as a national
resource that is saving
children in communities
everywhere is an
enormous tool both to
fund raising and volunteer
recruitment.
"The millions raised by
Thanks and Giving are
vital and, like all our
programs and
contributions, help to fuel
the pace. of our research
and spur our ability to
move discoveries rapidly
from bench to bedside."
To raise awareness and
funds, the Thomas family


has enlisted the support of
several celebrity partners.
Jennifer Aniston, Bernie
Mac, Sarah Jessica Parker,
Ray Romano, Jimmy
Smits and Robin Williams
will bring star power to
the Thanks and Giving
message on television and
movie screens. Toby Keith
will be featured in radio
PSAs. Other celebrities,
such as long-time hospital
supporter Daisy Fuentes,
will participate in public
relations efforts.
"Everyone at St. Jude
has long been motivated
by my father's promise
that no child would ever
be turned away for a
family's inability to pay,"
said Thomas. "Thanks and
Giving helps us keep that
promise. By bringing
nationwide awareness of
the work of St. Jude, the
Thanks and Giving
campaign is expanding the
family of givers in
communities across
America."

The UAE alone will

the Gulf States are among

fashion and beauty
products, with average

$317 per single purchase.
1.Ocal distributors suggest
that beauty product
retailers account for
between 25 and 30% of
all retail space which
makes the Middle East a

personal care suppliers.
As sales increase, the
counterfeit market has
also boomed.
Multinational
manufacturers across the
region are increasingly
aware of the threat posed
by counterfeit cosmetics

consumer safety; this
makes them eager to rally
for tighter regulations to
inhibit grey market sales
in Africa and the Middle
East where counterfeiting
is endemic. Indeed,

flight at the airport that
kept getting delayed
instead of returning home
-- as the husband had
suggested.
Experts say the rapid
technological change the
kingdom witnessed as a
result of the 1970s oil
boom is one of the major
reasons for the rise in
divorce rates.
Oil money rapidly
turned desert expanses
into slick urban centers
and gave a boost to
women's education,
introduced only in the
1960s. But this quick
jump into the 21st century
has not been
accompanied by a parallel
adaptation in traditions,
tribal customs and
attitudes, such as views
that wives should be
meek and undemanding.
Some men, experts say,
don't know how to cope
with educated women.
"The Saudi woman has
joined the work force and
has become more
educated," said al-Yahya.
"This has changed their
image from the one that


prevailed in the past."
Stringent rules
segregating the sexes
have remained in place
despite the modem facade
that has brought malls,
satellite TV and the
Internet into the kingdom.
Boys and girls are
separated once they reach
puberty and are often not
prepared to live with a
member of the opposite
sex after they get married.
Women, who must wear
veils and black cloaks
called abayas, are kept
away from men who are
not husbands, brothers or
uncles.
Very rarely do couples
go out before they get
married, and some don't
see their spouses until
their wedding night.
Even after they get
married, it is difficult for
couples to go out
together. For instance, a
married couple cannot go
out to dinner with other
married couples because
the wives would be in the
presence of men who are
not their husbands. At
family gatherings,

St. Paul
(continued from page 11)
writing was not an easy task.
But it was a labor of love.
Because writing was a
tedious task, only two or three
hours in a day could be
devoted to a letter. It is
estimated that the Letter to the
Romans must have occupied
Paul and his secretary at least
32 days at three hours a day, or
a maximum of 49 days at two
hours a day.
The Mechanics of Writing
Influenced the Understanding
These approximate
calculations hold special
importance for a correct
interpretation and
understanding of St Paul's


letters. Apparent interruptions
in the development of thought,
abrupt transitions, and
repetition complicate Paul's
theological reflections and
exhortations. Considering the
time involved in actually
composing and writing, and
factoring in postponements
and interruptions, no wonder
Paul's content and style are not
always easy to follow or to
read aloud.
Another New Testament
letter writer, St Peter, admitted
frankly that in the letters of
"our beloved brother Paul .. .
there are some things hard to
understand" (2 Peter 3:15-16).

God's Love
(continued from page 16)
be weary, and the young
men shall utterly fall: But
they that wait upon the
Lord shall renew their
strength; they shall mount
up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be
weary; and they shall
walk, and not faint."
Isaiah 40:25-31
"And so Pilate, willing
to content the people,
released Barabbas unto
them, and delivered
Jesus, when he had
scourged him, to be
crucified." Mark 15:15.
Jesus crowned with
thorns.
'And it was the third
hour, and they crucified
him. And the
superscription of his
accusation was written
over, THE KING OF
THE JEWS." Mark
15:25-26. "And when the
centurion, which stood
over against him, saw that
he so cried out, and gave


up the ghost, he saith,
"Truly this man was the
Son of God." Mark 15:39.
"...Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
which was, and is, and is
to come." Revelation 4:8
"And when I saw him, I
fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand
upon me, saying unto me,
Fear not; I am the first
and the last: I am he that
liveth, and was dead; and
behold, I am alive for
evermore, Amen; and
have the keys of hell and
of death." Revelation
1:17-18
"The great Creator
became my Savior! Do
you want Him to be your
Savior? If you want to go
to Heaven, pray this
prayer now.
Jesus, be merciful to
me, a sinner. Forgive my
sins, enter my heart and
change my life. Thank
you for saving my soul.
His servant,
Fred Massabni

"How often do you get a
movie like this for your first
project?" he said.
Mike Ossi of Ossi, Butler,
Najem & Rosario, said Ring
has deep pockets and owners
who are passionate about
film.
"We can compete
financially with anybody in
the independent studio
system," he said.
"We want to make movies
that we want to watch, feel-
good movies," Maggio said.
Glad All Over is about a
reclusive man (Jackson)
St. Paul
(continued from page 17)
not all like St Paul, but we do
have the ability and
opportunity to cheer, console,
cajole, congratulate, and
encourage each other. Letter
writing is a valuable apostolic
venture. Remember that St,
Paul inspired and supported
Church vocations by his letters
to Timothy and Titus, and in


who, after the death of his
wife, writes an inspirational
book that changes the lives of
a number of characters.
Ring's second production
is called Graduating Mom, a
comedy in which a middle-
aged woman returns to
college to finish her degree
and meets the son she gave
up for adoption years ago.
The company is talking with
Diane Lane about the role.
Ring executives said they
plan to make three films a
year, with a budget of about
$10 million each. Glad All
Over's budget is $10.5
million, Ossi said.
all his letters exhorted all the
baptized to be faithful to their
baptismal consecration.
Writing a personal letter is
a wonderful and warm
expression of thoughtfulness
and courtesy and appreciation.
Letter writing is an inspired of
expressing God's love for us,
and our love for one another
Lefs take a page from St. Paul
and renew this practice in our
own lives.
