until his death, he drove
himself here to my
office to bring his
articles. We would share
stories and we would
laugh together. He
would bring me some of
his favorite dishes.
He was born May
15, 1908, in Damascus,
Syria. He is survived by
his daughter, Dr. Marie
Hoffman of Fogelsville,
PA, her husband, Dr.
Lowell Hoffman and
two grandchildren,
Robert and Karissa

He was laid to rest
on Friday, the 23rd, at

the lives he touched. He
will be missed by myself

The Miraculous Birth of Jesus
His Death, His Resurrection, His Return


First we read in Luke
1:26-27, 30-35, 2:8-14, 18
And in the sixth month
the angel Gabriel was sent
from God unto a city of
Galilee, named Nazareth,
To a virgin espoused to a
man whose name was
Joseph, of the house of
Favid; and the virgin's
name was Mary. And the
angel said unto her, Hear
not, Mary: for thou hast
found favor with God.
And, behold, thou shalt
conceive in why womb,
and bring forth a son, and
shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and
shall be called the Son o f
the Highest; and the Lord
God shall give unto him


Rev. Fred Massabni
the throne of his father
David; And he shall reign
over the house of Jacob
forever, and of his
kingdom there shall be no
end. Then said Mary unto
the angel, How shall this
be, seeing I know not a
man? And the angel
answered her and said
unto her, The Hold Ghost

John XXIII
and the
Christian East
In view of the general
character of his
statements regarding the
unity of all Christians, we
must carefully ponder
them in order to grasp that
primarily it is the Eastern
Churches that are meant.
Even in the encyclical
Aeterna Dei only the
discussion of the
historical epoch allows
the imputation that the
encyclical above all
concerned these
Churches.
Whether this
obscureness resulted of
scruple on the part of the
Holy Father, or from the
influence of an advisor,
the fact is that he carried
this concern so far that
certain Orthodox circles,
perhaps wholly incorrect,
became mistrustful.


By Brother John
Samaha, S.M.
Orthodox leaders
reproached the Roman
Church for professing an
ecclesiology which did
not take sufficient account
of the differences between
the Churches, and which
supposedly avoided
coming to terms
ecclesiologically with her
sister Churches in the
East.
Perhaps this feeling
played a role in the
decision of the
Ecumenical See in
Constantinople not to

Prayer
Certain Selected
Sayings about Prayer -
Dua, Salat, are cited here:
1. 'There is nothing
dearer to Allah than to
pray to Him and lay one's
needs before Him.'
(Hazrat Ali)
(Precious Gems,P.519)
2. 'Do not despair for
the dlay caused in the
acceptance of your prayer,
as the more it is delayed,
the greater becomes the
prize.The acceptance of
prayer is often delayed ,
for Allah grants a better
reward or a higher gift to
the supplicant. (Hazrat
Ali.)(Ibid)
Some Sayings of the
Holy Prophet of Islam ,
peace be on him, are
recorded as:
1. 'When you pray
something to Allah ,do
not be impatient, rather
continue and expect in


By Dr. Qazi Muhammad
Barkatullah
full ,the consequence in
your favor.'
2. Invoke Allah's
Blessings ,being certain
of response,
simultaneously, know that
Allah does not respond to
the one who does not have
full Faith in Sim.'
3. 'Supplication before
Allah is the essence and
spirit of worship and it
cannot fail to produce one
of the three results in
favor of the suplicant:
i) who either gains
some immediate good;
ii) or, his/her sins are
forgiven in lieu thereof;
iii)or ,some other

Bombings
(continued from page 1)
many government
supporters blame on
Syria. Syria has denied
any role in the attacks,
including the suicide
truck bombing that
killed Hariri and 22
others on Feb. 14, 2005.
Outrage over the
assassination forced
Damascus to withdraw
its ffoops from Lebanon
two months later, ending
a 29-year presence.
After Tuesday's
blasts, the pro-
government majority
coalition in parliament
said in a statement that it
holds "the Syrian regime
fully responsible for this
despicable crime." It
accused Syria of trying
to "make Lebanon
another Iraq by
destroying its security
and stability."
The coalition called
on the Arab League to
impose sanctions against
members of the Syrian
regime and demanded
U.N. troops be deployed
along the Lebanon-Syria
border "to halt the flow
of arms to subversive
groups directly linked to
this regime" a

reference to pro-Syrian
groups.
The bombs Tuesday
ripped through two
commuter buses
traveling on a busy
mountain highway
northeast of Beirut,
killing three and

said.
Witnesses at Ein Alaq,
a village in pine-wooded
mountains a 30-minute
drive northeast of Beirut,
said the first bomb
exploded in a bus around
9 a.m. As people rushed
to the scene, a second
explosion, about 10
minutes later, tore
through a second bus
that had driven up.
The buses were
carrying people to work,
and witnesses said they
pass at 10-minute
intervals, ferrying
people from Christian
mountain villages to the
coast and Beirut while
stopping along the way
for whoever hails them
or wants to get off.
Pro-government

extravaganza. So, it
makes sense to start the
party on that Wednesday,
July 4,2007. Our newest,
cutting-edge hotel, The
Hilton Americas in
Downtown Houston, will
be the site of the grand
affair, granting us special
room rates starting at $95
a night for single, double,
triple, & quad. Their
40,000 square foot
ballroom will certainly
eliminate the toe crushing
in those Dabke lines!
There will be special
events each day for all
ages. Enjoy the feel of
Las Vegas at our Casino
Night and lavish buffet,
with the opportunity to
win prizes, and end the
night with Arabic
dancing. Round up those
debutantes for a night to
remember. Our usual
Grand Banquet will be
transformed into a Gala!
There will be a variety


of music for all ages,
children & teen events, &
single mixers. Saturday
will host a "Talent
Review," inspired by the
accomplishments of one
of our own, the late, great
Cliff Antone, who was
instrumental in
transforming Austin,
Texas into the "Live
Music Capital of the
World." It is not a contest.
We just have a lot of
talent, especially with the
youth, and we will
provide the venue.
So, if your mama said
you can sing, that just
proves she loves you.
Please get a second
opinion before you sign
up!
Entertainment and
food functions throughout
the weekend will alleviate
any desire to leave the
hotel, but, if you do, there
is much Houston has to
offer. You will be blocks
from the Theater District,

send observers to
Vatican Council II, and
doing so in the name of
all autocephalous
Orthodox Churches. The
Moscow Patriarchate at
the last moment removed
herself from this
unanimous answer of
Orthodoxy. And the
pastoral greatness
common to Pope John
XXIII and Patriarch
Athenagoras I overcame
this temporary untoward
incident. We know too
that cordial relations
between the Roman and
Orthodox Churches. have
been inestimably
strengthened by the
history-making
pilgrimage of Pope John's
successor, Paul VI, to the
Holy Land, where on two.
separate occasions he
discussed the problem of
unity with the late
Patriarch Athenagoras.
Many may have been


astonished over the fact
that in this question
Protestants groups
showed themselves to be
more receptive than
Orthodox groups to the
invitation of the Roman
Church. In reality the
basic difficulties in the
Orthodox side are less
numerous and less
serious. On the other
hand the psychological
difficulties are all the
greater, to say nothing of
the fact that in the early
twentieth century the
"ecumenical spirit" had
undergone lesser
development in the East
than in the West.
In this sphere John
XIl1 has shown that he
was ahead of his time vis-
a-vis his own curia, as
well as in relation to
Orthodox groups. By
creating the Secretariat
for Promoting Christian
Unity he not only made

its highest level familiar

Egypt
(continued from page 1)
this year.
The following
evening, Ambassador
Fahmy, who was born in
the United States,
presented Egypt's view
of the Middle East to a
large audience at the
World Affairs Council
co-hosted by the
University of North
Florida. Internationally
recognized for his
expertise in disarmament
and international
security, his expertise
has led him to participate
in numerous Egyptian
delegations dealing with
Middle East peace and
disarmament issues.
He stated that the
population of Egypt tips
at 74 million and that
one in four Arabs is
Egyptian. 56% of the
country is below the age
of 25 years and is
globally connected
-through their use of the


Internet.
With Egypt
considered the trend
setter of the Middle East,
Ambassador Fahmy
reminded the audience
that Egypt is the only
Arabic country that has
won a Nobel Peace
Prize. He thanked the
United States telling the
audience that if the USA
had not helped Egypt,
they would not be where
they are today
economically or
militarily.
But, it was Egypt's
opinion that the United
States cannot deal with
many global issues
without friends.
Compared to Egypt, with
its 7000 year history and
its propensity to act
slower to situations, he
stated that 'the USA
seems always in a hurry
and has, what appears to
be, a frontier mentality.
He suggested that the
United States will "go it

spoke at a public session
on promoting religious
tolerance. Other attendees
included former Iranian
President Mohammad
Khatami, the prime
minister of Malaysia, an
Orthodox Jewish rabbi and
peace activist from Israel
and an American cleric.
The moderator, New
York Times columnist
Thomas Friedman, asked
panelists at one point to
"self-criticize" and say
what they would change to
promote greater interfaith
understanding.
Turning to the princess,
he quipped: "What would
you do, princess, if you
were 'queen' for a day? I
won't tell anyone."
"First thing, I'd let
women drive," Al-Faisal


said dryly, as the audience
erupted in applause and
laughter. She added as the
applause died down, "Or
else have a great
transportation system,
which we don't have."
Women in Saudi Arabia
now can work at many
jobs that once were off-
limits a point the princess
made. But critics say their
inability to drive holds
them back from many jobs
by forcing them to rely on
hired drivers, or on male
relatives, to get to work or
to school.
Some critics say the
driving ban particularly
impacts poorer Saudi
families who cannot afford
to hire drivers. Because of
that, some consider the
driving ban not'just as a
women's rights issue, but

Bombings
(continued from page 14)
the bombings sought to
undermine efforts to
reach compromise
between bitterly split
Lebanese factions.
"Every time the
Lebanese seem close to
an agreement, enemies
of Lebanon commit
another crime," Lahoud
said in a statement.
The potential for
violence was high even
before the latest
bombings.
The army has installed
a razor-wire barrier to
separate the opposition's
protest encampment on
the main downtown
Martyrs' Square from the
rally next to Hariri's
grave. Troops have
deployed on highways to
prevent friction between


supporters of the two
sides en route.
Last month,
disturbances killed eight
people and wounded
dozens. A Jan. 23 strike
turned into clashes with
guns, clubs and stones,
while an argument
among students on a
university campus two
days later led to rioting.
At the site of
Tuesday's bombings, the
two buses lay about 30
yards apart, the first with
its roof twisted and its
back shattered. The roof
of the second bus was
blown -off, with seats
thrown on the road and
pools of blood around
the wreckage.
Security forces with
sniffer dogs sifted
through the debris. The

made small but striking
steps toward reform, such
as instances where Saudi
female journalists were
allowed to interview men.
But the reform pace has
slowed, partly because of
reported differences within
the royal family over the
pace and direction of
change and partly because
?7"' of resistance by religious
conservatives who fear
reform will dilute their
strong influence.
The issue of women
drivers has been mostly
dormant from Saudi public
debate in recent years. It
flared after the Gulf War in
1991, when a group of
prominent Sajudi women
staged a protest by driving
-through the capital of
Riyadh. But the
government cracked down
hard, confiscating many.of
the women's passports and
thus preventing them from
~- leaving the country for


months afterward.
The debate has
occasionally flared in
newspapers since but
never to such an extent as
in 1991. Yet many Saudi
women privately view the
ban as a main barrier to
progress.
Conservatives,
however, are vocal in
pushing to retain the ban -
saying that allowing
women to drive would
inevitably lead to their
moral corruption, by
forcing them to interact
with men who are not
relatives 'in places such as
gas stations.
Other Gulf countries,
including Kuwait and the
United Arab Emirates, and
other Arab countries allow
women to drive.
Al-Faisal is a sister of
two prominent members of
the current government,
Foreign Minister Saud Al-
Faisal and Prince Turki Al-
Faisal, the outgoing Saudi
ambassador to the United
States.

highway, a usually busy
road linking Christian
towns in the mountains
with the capital, was
blocked.
Security officials
estimated the size of the
"banana-shaped" bombs
at four to seven pounds
each and said the
explosives were packed
with metal pellets and
put under seats in the
buses.
"May God's wrath fall
on all of them who did
this," said Genevieve
Hayek, in her 70s, the
owner of a roadside
snack bar 15 yards from
the bombing scene. She
had rushed to help the
victims. "What is the
fault of the people just


going to work?"
A security official said
the casualty figure could
have been much higher if
most passengers from the
second bus had not
rushed out to help those
in the first.
The blasts occurred in
the same Christian
heartland as most of the
previous explosions that
have rocked Lebanon
since Hariri's
assassination, targeting
anti-Syrian politicians,
journalists and
commercial and
industrial centers.
