An explanation of Holy Qurbana-VIII


Holy Qurbana or the "Holy Offering" or "Holy Sacrifice", refers to the Eucharist as celebrated according to the Syriac Orthodox Church traditions.

An explanation of Holy Qurbana-VIII
The Kiss of Peace

The kiss of peace is of apostolic origin (Rom 16:16, 1 Cor. 16:20) and signifies the 'fellowship of the Spirit'in the liturgy  of which the Eucharist is the outward sign.

It reminds us about the love and harmony that should exist among the followers (disciples) of Christ, and thereby fulfill the word of the Lord which says, 'If thou offer thine offering and remembers that thy brother hath aught against thee; leave thine offering, and go, be reconciled with thy brother' (Mathew 5:23)
