    May 11, 2021

    ‏Departure of St.Jason, one of the Seventy Disciples

    ‏ On this day St. Jason, one of the seventy disciples who were chosen by the Lord, departed.

    He ministered with the disciples before the passion of the Savior,

    and performed many signs and wonders.

    Then he was supported by the grace and power on the day of Pentecost.

    He was born in Tarsus, and was the first to believe from this city.

    ‏He accompanied St. Paul on his evangelical missions,

    and journeyed with him to many countries.

    ‏He was arrested with St. Paul and Silas in Thesalonica, and when they had taken security from Jason and the rest, they let them go. (Acts 17:9)

    ‏He was ordained bishop by St. Paul over Tarsus where he shepherded the church of Christ with the best of care.

    ‏He preached the Gospel also in the city of Korkiras, many believed on his hands and he baptized them.

    ‏He built for them a church in the name of St. Stephen the Archdeacon.

    ‏When the Governor of the city knew about this, he arrested him and imprisoned him.

    ‏He met seven thieves in the prison, taught them the faith and baptized them.

    ‏They confessed their faith in the Lord Christ openly before the Governor who put them in a caldron filled with tar and sulphur,

    ‏they departed and were granted the crown of martyrdom.

    ‏ Then, the Governor brought St. Jason from the prison,

    and tortured him with much torture but he was not harmed.

    ‏The daughter of the Governor watched this torture from her window and she believed in the Lord Christ, the God of St. Jason.

    ‏She took off her jewelry and ornaments and distributed them among the poor,

    and confessed that she was Christian and believed in the God of Jason.

    ‏Her father became angry, he threw her in prison, and ordered to throw arrows at her.

    ‏She gave up her pure spirit in the hand of Christ whom she loved.

    ‏The Governor sent St. Jason to one of the islands to be tortured there.

    ‏He took a boat with some soldiers to this island, and God drowned them all and saved St. Jason, who continued to teach and preach for many years until another Governor was installed.

    ‏The new Governor brought him and the Christians who were with him, and tortured them much.

    ‏When the Governor saw that his torture did not harm their bodies, he and all those in his city also believed in the Lord Christ Who only Has the power to protect His chosen one.

    ‏The Saint baptized them all, taught them the commandments of the Gospel, and built for them churches.

    ‏God performed through him many miracles and signs. He departed in a good old age.

    ‏May his prayers be with us. Amen.

    نياحة باسون احد السبعين رسول

    في مثل هذا اليوم تنيح القديس ياسون أحد السبعين رسولا الذين انتخبهم الرب ،

    وقد كرز مع التلاميذ قبل آلام المخلص وصنع آيات وعجائب ثم تذرع بالنعمة والقوة يوم حلول الروح المعزي ،

    وقد ولد بطرسوس وهو أول من آمن بها ،

    وقد صحب بولس في التبشير وجال معه بلادا كثيرة ،

    وقبض عليه مع بولس وسيلا في تسالونيكي (ثم أطلقوهما بكفالة) .

    فرعي كنيسة المسيح أحسن رعاية ثم كرز أيضا في مدينة كوركيراس فآمن كثيرون علي يده وعمدهم

    وبني لهم كنيسة علي اسم القديس اسطفانوس رئيس الشمامسة

    فلما علم بذلك والي المدينة قبض عليه ووضعه في السجن

    فوجد فيه سبعة لصوص فعلمهم الإيمان وعمدهم واعترفوا جهارا أمام الوالي بالسيد المسيح

    فوضعهم في قدر مملوء زفتا وكبريتا فتنيحوا ونالوا إكليل الشهادة .

    بعد ذلك أخرج الوالي الرسول من السجن وعذبه عذابا كثيرا فلم ينله ضرر

    وكانت ابنة الملك تشاهد ذلك من شباكها فآمنت بالسيد المسيح

    ثم خلعت عنها حليها وزينتها ووزعتها علي المساكين واعترفت أنها مسيحية مؤمنة باله ياسون

    فغضب أبوها وطرحها في السجن ثم أمر برميها بالسهام فأسلمت روحها الطاهرة بيد المسيح الذي أحبته ،

    وكان الملك قد أرسل ياسون الرسل إلى أن تولي آخر

    فاستحضره ومن معه من المسيحيين وعذبهم كثيرا

    ولما رأي الوالي أن أجسادهم لم تتأثر من التعذيب

    آمن هو وكل مدينته بالسيد المسيح الذي له وحده القوة علي حفظ أصفيائه ،

    فعمدهم القديس وعلمهم وصايا الإنجيل وبني لهم الكنائس ،

    وقد أجري الله علي يديه آيات كثيرة وتنيح في شيخوخة حسنة صلاته تكون معنا آمين .

    إن أروع صور الحرية ، والقيامة الأولى هى صورة انسان غلب ذاته وشهواته، وانطلقت روحه فى قوة القيامة .. فى ملء الحرية تحلق فى أجواء السماء.. وهى مازالت تعيش فى الجسد .
