Archbishop Oshagan announced that this Sunday, February 22, all Prelacy churches will observe Remembrance Day for the Armenian Relief Society. Requiem service for all deceased members and benefactors will be offered following the Liturgy in a tradition established some years ago and by the request of the ARS regional executive.

Remembered specifically will be the founder of the ARS, Agnouni (Khatchadour Maloomian), on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death, and benefactors George and Beatrice Lazarian, Levon and Sophia Hagopian, Karekin and Virginia Siroonian, Samuel and Agnes Yeremian, Araxie Proodian, Haiganoush Garabedian, Doris Norian Lentzi, Alice Norian, Arpkes Kelerchian, Hagop Jacques Mouradian , Alice Haigazian  Berman, Genevieve Yekeshian, Yervant and Helen Terzian, Albert and Takouhi Bagian, Giragos Vaporsiyan, Kourken Assaturian, and Margaret Assaturian.

“This is a day for us to honor those who served the Armenian people for many decades in the field of education and humanitarian and social welfare. It is also an opportunity for us to express appreciation of the Armenian Relief Society’s noble service for more than 100 years,” said the Prelate.

Bible readings for Sunday, February 22, Second Sunday of Great Lent, Sunday of the Expulsion, are: Isaiah 33:2-22; Romans 12:1-13; Matthew 5:17-48.

I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in  exhortation; the giver, in  generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.

Let love be genuine: hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers. (Romans 12:1-13)

This Saturday, February 21, the Armenian Church remembers Theodore the Warrior, a captain in the Roman army during the reign of Emperor Licinius. Theodore was born into a Christian family and was educated in the teachings of the faith. He was noted for his bravery and was especially noted for killing a serpent that was terrorizing people and animals. Theodore armed himself with a sword, and with a prayer to the Lord vanquished the serpent and became a heroic figure. He was appointed commander of Heraclea where he combined his military duties with the preaching of the Gospel. Soon nearly all of Heraclea had accepted Christianity. Emperor Licinius began a campaign against the Christians, and Theodore was a main target. He was arrested and given an opportunity to renounce his Christian faith, which he refused to do. He was martyred in 319 A.D. in Heraclea, Thrace.

As of Monday we entered the period of Great Lent (Medz Bahk), and the Church has taken on a somber, mournful, and penitential manifestation. Beginning last Sunday, which was Poon Paregentan, the altar is closed with a dark curtain, symbolic of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden (See Genesis, Chapters 2 and 3).

Holy Communion is not offered during the liturgy. It is a period of repentance and reflection on our spiritual journey toward Easter. We are reminded that through prayers and fasting we strive to please God and regain Mankind’s original sinless creation.

Each of the Sundays during Lent has a theme. This Sunday is the Sunday of the Expulsion (Ardagsman Giragi). The message of this day is a continuation of last Sunday’s Paregentan theme, namely, Adam and Eve’s fall from grace and banishment from Paradise. The hymns sung on the first two Sundays of Lent remind us of the expulsion and give sinners the opportunity to be worthy through repentance.
O Lord, you first gave the holy observance of the law in paradise. But the first creatures disobeyed you by eating the forbidden fruit and thus tasted the bitterness of sin and death. Therefore, enable us to taste the sweetness of your commandments.  (From the hymn sung on the Sunday of the Expulsion.)


The Prelacy’s six-part Lenten Program began last night, Wednesday, February 18, at St. Illuminator’s Cathedral in New York City, with church service and reflections and meal fellowship, presided over by His Eminence Archbishop Oshagan, the Prelate. The program will continue on subsequent Wednesdays during Lent.

This year, exceptionally, instead of faith-based topics, the Lenten reflections will be focusing on diverse aspects of the Armenian Genocide, because the Armenian community worldwide will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

The reflections will be presented by young adults, three every Wednesday. Last night’s reflections were presented by Lori Hatem Asquith, Esq., Ara Sarajian, and Krikor Yeremian. Video of the reflections will be available next week.

Next Wednesday, February 25, the speakers will be Sossi Essajanian, Melineh Mesrobian, and Arousiag Markarian.

The Lenten Program is sponsored by the Prelacy’s Armenian Religious Education Council (AREC), the Prelacy’s Ladies Guild (PLG), and the Ladies’ Guild of St. Illuminator’s Cathedral.
Archbishop Oshagan leads the Husgoom Service last night at the Cathedral, with the participation of His Grace Bishop Anoushavan, Vicar, Father Hovnan Bozoian, Father Mesrob Lakissian, Deacon Shant Kazanjian, and Deacon Dickran Kabaradjian.
The three speakers were Lori Hatem Asquith, Esq., Ara Sarajian, and Krikor Yeremian. 

The Armenian Inter-Communal Committee of Philadelphia held its joint commemoration of the Feast of the Vartanantz Saints last Thursday, February 12, at the Armenian Martyrs' Congregational Church.  The program, with the participation of the clergy of the Philadelphia Armenian community and the students of the Armenian Sisters Academy, was well received by those gathered in the Sanctuary.  Prayers, hymns, Scriptural readings, songs and recitations paved the way for guest speaker, Mr. Hovannes Khosdeghian, to deliver his presentation, entitled: "Vartan and the Rebirth of Armenia."  Referring to the Old Testament in the Bible and Armenian history, Mr. Khosdeghian enlightened the audience by stating that from the beginning of time the same hands God created for all people were used for tearing down and for building up.  He went on to say that although destruction was great during the Avarayr war and the Vartanantz saints suffered at the hands of their enemies, there also resulted a building up--building churches, building the foundation of the faith.  After the program everyone convened in the church hall for refreshments and fellowship. (Reported by Jeanette Nazarian)

St. Gregory the Illuminator Church in Granite City, Illinois, commemorated the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord to the Temple (Dyarnuntarach) on February 13. During the service, Der Torkom Chorbajian, pastor of the parish, presented new born babies to the Altar, in the tradition of the Armenian Church. After the service parishioners gathered around a bonfire outside the church where they sang, danced, and enjoyed the warmth of this old tradition. Afterwards the local ARF chapter hosted a reception that included food and entertainment.

Declaration of Secession of Nagorno Karabagh from Azerbaijan
(February 20, 1988)

The question of Karabagh started in the years of the first independent Republic of Armenia and was not solved after the South Caucasus became part of the Soviet Union. The arbitrary decision of the Caucasian Bureau of the Soviet Communist Party (July 5, 1921) to attach Karabagh to Azerbaijan only contributed to open a new Pandora’s box. Throughout the decades, the Azerbaijani discriminatory policy had the other historical Armenian region, the Autonomous Republic of Nakhichevan, as poster child: due to continuous emigration, its Armenian population went from 40% in 1926 to 2% in 1988.

It is not surprising then, that the Armenians of Mountainous Karabagh, who constituted 90% of its population in 1926, took every opportunity to address Moscow and ask for a fair solution of the issue. Various letters were sent in 1945, 1965, and 1977. The petition of 1965 was signed by 45,000 people. On its grounds, the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union assigned to the Central Committees of the party in Armenia and Azerbaijan the mission of preparing a proposal for the solution of the problem of Karabagh in 1966. However, Azerbaijan was able to put the brakes on any possible solution. The Azerbaijani KGB, led by Heydar Aliyev (future president in post-Soviet times) stimulated interethnic conflict. As a result, more than 150 Armenians were sent to prison, where 20 people were killed and ten others disappeared. More than a hundred families, after two years of persecution, were forced to leave Karabagh. The issue was again treated in 1977 during the discussions of the draft Soviet Constitution, but never went through.

After the proclamation of the policies of restructuring (perestroika) and transparency (glasnost) by the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, the movement for Karabagh entered a new phase in mid-1987. There were demonstrations and meetings, and the representatives of the autonomous region sent petitions to the party and state organs of the Soviet Union. A petition that asked for the reattachment of the autonomous region to Soviet Armenia was signed by 80,000 people.
This phase found its climax on February 20, 1988. The first secretary of the Central Committee of Azerbaijan, Kamran Baghirov; members of the Bureau of the Central Committee, and the instructor of the Soviet Communist Party, V. Yashin, arrived in Stepanakert, the capital of Mountainous Karabagh, with the intention of thwarting the extraordinary session of the Regional Council of the Nagorno (Mountainous) Karabagh Autonomous Region (NKAR), intended to pass a resolution on the issue. The visitors called for a session of the party regional committee, and the local party structure was held responsible the organization for the situation. Despite the pressure of representatives from Baku and of the first secretary of the Communist Party in Karabagh, Boris Kevorkov, the session was held on the same day and the Regional Council passed the following resolution, entitled “On a Petition to the Supreme Councils of the Azerbaijani SSR and the Armenian SSR on the NKAR’s Secession from Soviet Azerbaijan and Its Transfer to Soviet Armenia”:

“After hearings and debates on a petition to the Supreme Councils of the Azerbaijani SSR and the Armenian SSR on the secession of the Nagorno Karabagh Autonomous Region from Soviet Azerbaijan and its transfer to Soviet Armenia, the special session of the Nagorno Karabagh Autonomous Oblast Regional Council of People’s Deputies have decided:  “Meeting the requests of the NKAR workers, to appeal to the Supreme Councils of the Azerbaijani SSR and the Armenian SSR to show a profound understanding of the expectations of the Armenian population of Nagorno Karabagh and to resolve the issue of NKAR’s secession from the Azerbaijani SSR and its transfer to the Armenian SSR, and at the same time to submit a petition to the Supreme Council of the USSR on a positive resolution of the issue on NKAR’s secession from the Azerbaijani SSR and its transfer to the Armenian SSR.”

This document followed the legal procedures established by Soviet law and was backed by peaceful demonstrations held in Stepanakert and Yerevan in the same day. The Karabagh Movement, the “test of the perestroika,” had started. Three years later, it would end in the independence of the Republics of Armenia and Nagorno Karabagh.
