Answers to life’s big questions

Jesus said to her, “Mary!” She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” (John 20:16-17 NRSV)

– Мария, – сказал ей Иисус. Она повернулась к Нему и воскликнула на еврейском языке: – Раббуни (что значит «Учитель мой»)! Иисус сказал:– Не удерживай Меня, потому что Я еще не поднимался к Отцу. Пойди лучше к Моим братьям и скажи им: Я поднимаюсь к Моему Отцу и к вашему Отцу, к Моему Богу и к вашему Богу. (Иоанна 20:16-17 Russian NRT)

O LORD my faithful and true God ~ hear the prayers of faith from everyone who truly loves and obeys your beloved Son in whom we trust for the ultimate gift of eternal life. Forgive us for sometimes searching for answers to life’s big questions from other mere human beings. Enlighten us as we listen and follow the teachings of Jesus – our Teacher who is the very epitome of truth and love. Give us open hearts to also listen to testimonial words of faith from women disciples whose lives are devoted to Christ as Lord. Shame those who hatefully disparage and belittle women who are devoted to pure living in their family, church, and community. According to the will of our dear Lord Jesus, Amen.
