In his message, Very Rev. Fr. Sarkissian emphasized the significance of fasting as a crucial period for spiritual growth in the life of a Christian and a period when individuals, strengthened by the hope of resurrection, undergo various sacrifices, and face various deprivations and self-resistance. Very Rev. Fr. Sarkissian shared that “Through this journey of sacrifice and self-discipline, a mindful Christian will be prepared to welcome and embrace the sacred observance of Easter and its glorious blessings”.
