An Arabic Prayer for Divine Mercy
An Arabic prayer for God's Mercy. In the tradition of the Church of Antioch founded by Sts. Paul and Barnabas, whose first bishop was the Apostle Peter. Where the faithful were first called Christians. From the Paraklesis, Supplicatory Canon to the Theotokos.
There is a brief history of this tradition here:
The first stone cross in the video is from the altar at the ancient Byzantine church on top of Mt. Nebo in Jordan. John Paul II prayed before this cross.
The second cross is at the Orthodox convent of Our Lady in Saidnaya, Syria.
The frescoes of the praying saints (Dormition scene with Theotokos stolen) are from an obscure ancient Byzantine church in Maad, Lebanon, named after St. Charbel the former (martyr of the Church of Antioch, year 107). Originally a Greek temple with a dedication to the Master of the Universe, the church was eventually converted to Maronite and later had Crusader additions. There is a retreat center near this site here:
