International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate all the wonderful women in our lives, the mothers, the sisters, the daughters, wives and best friends! Those who are our pillars of strength, those who amaze us everyday by how strong they are and how patient they can be. They never ready get enough credit for never failing to impress us, but it’s because nothing can be said or done that will do them justice.
Since spending a lifetime of showing gratitude isn’t enough, then one day of celebration will hardly do them justice! Here are the reasons why women should actually be celebrated everyday.
1. They Look Out For One Another
Women have got each others’ backs, they empower one another and they would do anything for their best friends and even strangers. More Facebook groups are made for this sole reason of empowering other women, these groups help raise the self-esteem of women and even help kick off their careers.
They say women hate women but that is one misconception!
2. They’re Selfless
Mothers in specific do things without expecting anything in return, all it takes is for them to love you and they will bless you with the purest kind of love, sacrifice and encouragement.
3. They Inspire You
They inspire you to become the best version of yourself, they can push you beyond your limits and have you evolved. Women tend to always encourage their partners, so that you can both grow together.
4. They’re Hard Working
Women work by day and take care of a house at night, they’re relentless and never give up easily. They are hard workers who exert tremendous effort because they’re perfectionists.
5. They Multitask Like Bosses
They balance their life like the real bosses they are, they can do several things at once and not complain about it or show it off to everyone. Because then again, they’re humble and grounded.
6. They’re The Best Counselors
How many times did you eventually go to your mother for advice? How many times did you seek the wise words of your best friend or partner? It’s because they have the natural talent of being there for someone and they’re great at it! They give the best advice, they will guide you and can certainly be counted on.
7. They’re Dependable
You can always depend on her and she would never disappoint, whatever the task is, rest assured that she will get it done. They’re the secret keepers, those we confide in and find comfort in their embrace.
These women are the blessings in our lives and we should celebrate them everyday and show them our gratitude, so take a moment to appreciate those who make life much better!
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Suspends Services for One Month
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.
The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.
The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.
As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.
For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.
The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.
As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.
We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
