9 Baba
(The Ninth Day of the Blessed Month of Babah)

 

The Eclipse of the Sun in the Year 958 A.M

On this day also, in the year 958 A.M., during the reign of King El-Saleh Ayoub and the papacy of the father the Patriarch Abba Kyrillos III, 75th Pope of the See of St. Mark, a stupendous thing happened in the world which amazed those who beheld it or heard of it. The sun became gradually dark until darkness spread everywhere and the stars were seen in the daytime.

    People lit lamps and were struck with great fear. They cried out to God the Almighty with all their hearts, asking for His compassion and mercy. The Lord had mercy upon them, removed their fear and the darkness was lifted all at once and the sun appeared to light up the world, and the lamps were extinguished. That occurred from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

    The people glorified God who was long suffering towards them and did not deal with them according to their sins but according to His mercy and patience.

To Him is the Glory in His church. Amen.
