A Ge'ez Poem:
June 28, 2022
Some beloved brethren deacons and I gathered digitally over Instagram Live yesterday to remember and celebrate the Holy Virgin Mary’s monthly holiday for the month of Sené, according to Bahire Hasab (the sea of thoughts) or the Ge’ez Calendar or the Ethiopian Calendar.

Dcn. Menkr drops this poem (amongst many), from the fathers.
ከበሮ ጻድቅ ትዕዛዘ ወንጌል ዓቀበ
ክልኤተ ገጻተ እስመ ለተጸፍኦ ወሀበ
kebero tsadq tiizaze wengél aqebe
kiléte getsate isme letetsefio wehabe
the righteous afroasiatic kettle drum keeps the ordinance of the gospel,
rendering its two faces to he who would slap them.
