THE PROMISE
 
Opening Night Movie screening
APRIL 21,2017
We are buying out, along with Holy Virgin Mary & Shoghagat Armenian Church, two showing's of the film "The Promise". One is Friday April 21st at 8 PM in Edwardsville, IL at the AMC showplace 12 and the other is Saturday April 22nd at 2 PM at the Marcus Street theater in St. Charles, Missouri. We will have more information on how to purchase tickets shortly.

It is imperative that the Armenian Community gets the word out about this film to everyone via social media and word of mouth. The opening weekend is the most important weekend because the studio decides how long a film stays in theaters based on its opening weekend numbers!

The Gospel Reading

Matthew 20:29-21:17

 As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. There were two blind men sitting by the roadside. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, ‘Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!’ The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet; but they shouted even more loudly, ‘Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!’ Jesus stood still and called them, saying, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ They said to him, ‘Lord, let our eyes be opened.’ Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him. When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, ‘Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, just say this, “The Lord needs them.” And he will send them immediately.’ This took place to fulfil what had been spoken through the prophet, saying, 
‘Tell the daughter of Zion,
 Look, your king is coming to you,
 humble, and mounted on a donkey,
 and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ 
The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; they brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
‘Hosanna to the Son of David!
 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!’ 
When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking, ‘Who is this?’ The crowds were saying, ‘This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee.’

Մատթէոս 21.1-17

Երբ Երուսաղէմի մօտեցան եւ հասան Բեթփագէ, Ձիթենեաց լերան կողին, Յիսուս իր աշակերտներէն երկուքը ղրկեց՝ անոնց պատուիրելով. «Գացէք սա դիմացի գիւղը եւ անմիջապէս հոն կապուած էշ մը պիտի գտնէք իր աւանակին հետ. քակեցէք եւ ինծի բերէք։  Եթէ մէկը առարկէ, ըսէք, «Տէրը անոնց պէտք ունի», եւ անմիջապէս թոյլ պիտի տայ ձեզի»։
Ասիկա պատահեցաւ, որպէսզի իրականանայ մարգարէին խօսքը։
«Երուսաղէմի ըսէք. ահա քու Թագաւորդ քեզի կու գայ. Անիկա հեզ է, նստած իշու մը աւանակին վրայ»։
Աշակերտները գացին եւ կատարեցին ինչ որ Յիսուս պատուիրեց իրենց։  Յիսուս նստաւ աւանակին վրայ։  Ժողովուրդէն շատեր իրենց հագուստները կը փռէին ճամբուն վրայշ ուրիշներ ծառերէն ոստեր կը կտրէին եւ կը տարածէին ճամբուն վրայ։  Եւ ամբողջ բազմութիւնը, որ թափօրին մէջ Յիսուսի առջեւէն կ՚երթար կամ կը հետեւէր իրեն, կ՚աղաղակէր։
«Օրհնութիւն Դաւիթի որդիին, Օրհնեալ է ան որ կու գայ Տիրոջ անունով, օրհնութիւն բարձրեալին»։
Երբ Յիսուս Երուսաղէմ մտաւ, ամբողջ քաղաքը դրդրեցաւ։  «Ո՞վ է անիկա», կը հարցնէին քաղաքի բնակիչները. Եւ ամբոխը կը պատասխաներ .. «Ասիկա Յիսուս մարգարէն է, Գալիլիայի Նազարէթ քաղաքէն»։
