Lebanon

4   124  

The preserved body of St. Marina the Monk was returned to #Lebanon in a glass box Tuesday from #Italy’s #Venice. It is widely believed that Marina lived in #Qadisha Valley during the fifth century. After the death of her mother, she disguised herself as a man, moved into a monastery with her father and lived as a monk, according to #Maronite accounts. She was kicked out after being falsely accused of rape and fathering a child, and lived for some years outside the #monastery as a #beggar. She was venerated when she died and was discovered to be a woman.
Her remains were brought to #Constantinople after her death and then to Venice in 1113, according to the #Orthodox #Church in #America. The Chapel of Mar Marina stands next to the monastery where she is said to have lived in 3Qannoubine and is open for tourists. AFP/Joseph Eid

Kadisha Valley

As most of Lebanon has now gone to bed, what a remarkable day we have witnessed. Marina, a simple girl, would never have imagined that she would leave to Italy after her death or return to Lebanon to such a fuss. How special it was to watch as she made her way from the airport and people lined the streets with such excitement to meet her. What a witness Lebanon is, that as her body was being transported, no barricades were up in the streets. With such spontaneity people flooded the streets and she was generously being stopped so that people waiting could touch her. What was most moving to see was so many ordinary Lebanese lining the streets to seek her intercession. After 800 years of her body not being in her homeland, St Marina’s witness has never faded. She is now in Diman with our Patriarch, but how special it will be on Friday when she winds her way back to her home in the Valley of Saints, Wadi Qannoubine. Let us not squander this opportunity to learn from this great saint.
All St Marina desired was to be with the Lord. Let us all be inspired to that desire.
Amen.

Curiosidade do dia: Shakira ⭐
Nessa última sexta-feira 13/07, ocorreu o Festival Internacional do Cedro no #Líbano e quem abriu foi a Shakira conhecida mundialmente pelos seus hits. Mas você sabia que ela também é descendente? Sim! Sua família paterna é oriunda de #Tannourine, ao norte do Líbano. Apesar dela ser colombiana, possui grande habilidade na dança do ventre.
No início do dia, ela plantou um cedro em uma reserva natural próxima* e foi homenageada pelo prefeito local com a presença de funcionários públicos e fans.
OBS *: A Floresta dos Cedros de Deus (#Arz) e o Vale do #Qadisha estão na lista de Patrimônios Mundiais da #Unesco.
.
“Isso significa muito para mim, estar cantando na terra dos meus avós (...) Eu estou tão orgulhosa desses cedros, tão orgulhosa da minha herança e tão orgulhosa de vocês", disse Shakira, em meio aos aplausos da plateia." Maravilhosa! 🇱🇧

Day 3 - A desire to be with the Lord

St Marina wanted so badly to be with the Lord that she denied her gender and her very sexuality. Even when she was falsely accused of fathering a child, she still did not lose sight of the divine.
Today Lord, let us let go of ourselves, our temptations and even our own being and seek only to desire you.
Amen. St Marina is returning home. If you are in Lebanon she will be arriving on 17 July. Make sure you visit. #stmarina #lebanon #qadisha #qadishavalley #maronite #livingmaronite

Qozhaya Monastery in the Qadisha valley, carved into the caves. Wasn’t expecting to see a printing press brought to Lebanon from Edinburgh in the 1600s .

Day 2 - Qannoubine
The story of St Marina has captivated the hearts and minds of Maronites for generations. A young girl who wanted so desperately to be closer to God, she disguised herself as a man and lived as a monastic. She was falsely accused of fathering a child with a village girl and was subsequently thrown out of the monastery with the child to live on the outskirts of the town. She raised the child on food scraps, never speaking a word of her innocence. It was only in her death that it was discovered she was a women and she could not have been the father.
When you visit Wadi Qannoubine you might imagine vast and elaborate monasteries built by man. But it is nature who provides the monasteries in this blessed valley. The trees are the stain glass windows through which the light beams and the caves are the walls which shelter and protect.
Generations of Maronites have visited this amazing valley of saints at times when they were troubled seeking the intercession of St Marina. Today we pray for the intercession of St Marina for any troubles we may have - illness, financial worries and addictions. We pray that like St Marina we may never lose sight of loving the Lord.
Amen

You can learn more about the Grotto of St Marina and Qannoubine in the second part of Guita Hourani’s article at the link in the bio. We are also encouraging all Maronites to visit when Marina returns home this week from 17-23 July. #marina #hadchit #lebanon #qadisha #qadishavalley #wadiqannoubine #livingmaronite #troubles #maronite

Exciting news.

The body of Saint Marina is returning to visit Lebanon at her home in Wadi Qannoubine for her feast between 17 and 23 July.

The relics of Saint Marina were once kept at the Monastery of Qannoubine and were later transferred to Constantinople and from there to Venice, Italy.
The relics were placed in Saint Liberal and Saint Alexis church. After the arrival of the relics, the church became known at the Church of Santa Marina. It is located near a river or water canal named Rio di Santa Marina.
In 1818, the church was demolished and the relics were transferred to Santa Maria Formosa Church. The people of Venice, like the Maronites celebrate l Saint Marina’s feast on 17 July. Churches in Greece, Belgium and St. Catherine of Sinaï claim each to have a left hand of the Saint. To read more about this wonderful saint click on the link in the bio.
For those in Lebanon, St Marina’s body arrives at Beirut International Airport on Tuesday at 12:30 noon where it will remain in Lebanon until 23 July.
You can get more information about the visit at the Wadi Qadisha page on Facebook. وادي قاديشا المقدس

To celebrate we will begin three days of prayer in the lead up to her feast. Today we will pray for all those who want to be close to God, but are finding things are getting in their way. Marina knew that she did not want to marry and she wanted to consecrate her life to be with God. She chose to hide her gender and live out her life as a monk.

البيت - El bayt
- vies libanaises -
_______________
Sous le ventre des nuages
s'élève leur maison
comme une pousse qui
cherche à toucher le ciel mais reste
captive
de ses racines
Leur bayt
où tu rencontres
ceux d'aujourd'hui
ceux qui vivent en contraste
en clair-obscur
ceux qui louvoient entre montagne et vallée
ceux qui dansent au passé et se figent au
futur
ceux qui partagent leurs instants présents
avec le bon appétit
que l'on a envers les fruits mûrs
pour esquiver le fil des incertitudes

البيت - El bayt
- vies libanaises -
______________

De cette vallée
sainte ceinte de hauteurs
où s'écoulent les montagnes
de cet ancien paradis
aux courbes vertes et aux traces enneigées
aux murmures des courants et des solitaires
aux arômes de terre, vent, vies,
celles d'aujourd'hui et celles d'hier,
tu y découvres
ses regrets et ses idylles
ses souffrances et ses défenses
ses rides et ses enfants
tu traverses la mélancolie de Gibran
celui de Bcharré
tu remontes le fleuve
de tes envies d'abandon
pour arriver au seuil de leur maison
El bayt
Telle une lumière
Déposée sur les flancs claires des falaises qui
enlacent
avec un amour maternel le ventre des nuages
