PASTORAL

Homilies

The more we read the gospels, the more we realize new meanings within the texts. In his commentaries, Archbishop Warda offers englightening insights on Sundays readings, that help the listeners to better understand and meditate the gospels and specifically the readings within the liturgical calendar according to the Chaldean Rite. Moreover, these homilies help the lay faithful to have more knowledge about the Holy Scriptures and to spread that knowledge which they have received.
