St.Clare of Assisi Feast 11 Aug 2020

"We become what we love and
who we love shapes what we become." (attributed toSt Clare of Assisi) 




Monday 5th of October, Celebration of St. Francis Feast.

A solemn Mass was presided by the Latin Bishop Cesar Assayan con-celebrated by the Franciscan Friars from Harissa and Beyrouth.
Noursat transmitted the Ceremony directly on the TV and took interviews with F. Quirico Calella OFM Superior of St. Francis Convent in Mina- Tripoli, F. Najib Ibrahim OFM Superior of
St. Anthony Harissa Convent and the Bishop H.E Cesar Assayan.
They spoke about St.Francis visit to the cedars Land in February 1220 (where he stayed until autumn of the same year) after his reunion with Sultan Malek el-Kamel in 1219 in Damietta- Egypt.
After the Mass a few guests were invited to a dinner. The meal ended cutting a cake with the logo of the Custody of the Holy Land and the miniature of Saint Francis arrival to the Middle East.

Christian Unity Week 18-25 / 01/2021
Peace and love from Saint Francis Convent, Tripoli - El Mina - Lebanon
With a sore heart yesterday in the Church of Saint Francis, we prayed not in the presence of the believers, but rather alone because of the continuous lockdown due to the increase for the Corona pandemic.
The Council Vatican two gave an important role to women in the Church, and Pope Francis himself repeated and emphasized the importance of this role under the title “Granting the service of the reader and assistant in the altar service to secular women” several days ago in proposing the Motu Proprio Spiritus Domini “Spirit of the Lord”. Today we also wanted to involve three women of different religious rituals and beliefs in the liturgy and lyric chant.
Through television and social media, we want our prayer - one united with the prayers of brothers from other rites - to reach the end of the world. Jesus was identified in the Communion and Progress Document as a Perfect Communicator. We ask him, who prayed at the Last Supper for the unity of his disciples and promised to be among us whenever two or more gather in his name, to help us and protect us in this difficult time for humanity and Lebanon in particular.


SETTIMANA DI PREGHIERA PER L’UNITA’ DEI CRISTIANI(18-25/01/2021)-Tripoli Marina 20-01-2021
Pace e Bene dal convento di S.Francesco della Custodia di Terra Santa in Tripoli Marina – Libano
Con il cuore pieno di dolore siamo qui nella Chiesa di S.Francesco a pregare per l’unione dei cristiani non in presenza di fedeli ma da soli a causa del lockdown in corso per l’aumento dell’epidemia da Covid19.
A partire dal Concilio Vaticano II nella Chiesa si da’ un ruolo importante alle donne. Detto ruolo e’ stato ribadito dal Papa Francesco qualche giorno fa con il Motu Proprio “Spiritus Domini”.
Anche per questo evento abbiamo voluto coinvolgere tre donne di diversi riti e confessioni religiose, sia nella liturgia che nel canto lirico.
Attraverso la televisione e i socials vogliamo che la nostra preghiera unita a quella dei Fratelli delle altre confessioni religiose arrivi fino agli estremi confini della terra. Gesu’, definito Perfetto Comunicatore nella Communio et Progressio, ha pregato nell’ultima cena per l’unita’ dei suoi discepoli ed ha promesso di essere in mezzo a loro quando due o piu’ persone si riuniscono nel suo nome. Il Signore ci aiuti e ci protegga in questo particolare momento di difficolta’ per l’umanita’ e in particolare per il Libano.


أسبوع الصلاة لوحدة المسيحيين 18-25/01/2021

السلام والمحبة من دير القديس فرنسيس طرابلس- الميناء – لبنان
بقلب متألِّم من مساء ليلة أمس في كنيسة القديس فرنسيس نصلّي ليس بحضور المؤمنين إنّما بمفردنا بسبب الحجر المستمر نظراً لزيادة جائحة كورونا.
أعطى المجمع الفاتيكاني الثاني دوراً هاماً للمرأة في الكنيسة، وقد أكّد البابا فرنسيس نفسه تكراراً على أهميّة هذا الدور تحت عنوان "منح خدمة القارئ والمعاون في خدمة المذبح للنساء العلمانيّات" منذ عدّة أيام في اقتراح "روح الرب". انطلاقاً من ذلك، أردنا هذا المساء أيضاً إشراك ثلاث نساء من طقوس ومعتقدات دينيّة مختلفة في كلّ من خدمة الليتورجيا والترنيم.
من خلال التلفاز ووسائل التوصل الاجتماعيّ، نريد أن تصل صلاتُنا - واحدة موحَّدة مع صلاة الإخوة من الطوائف الأخرى - إلى أقاصي الأرض. تم تعريف يسوع في وثيقة المشاركة والتقدم بالمحاور الكامل. نطلب من يسوع، الذي صلّى في العشاء الأخير من أجل وحدة تلاميذه ووعد أن يكون بيننا كلّما اجتمع اثنان أو أكثر باسمه، أن يساعدنا ويحمينا في هذا الوقت العصيب للإنسانيّة وللبنان خاصة.

Also this year for the occasion of Saint Anthony of Padova we made a Solemn Celebration respecting the distance and the other rules for the pandemic. Not many people came from out of Mina Tripoli but we prayed for all the absents. Next year we hope it will be normal. Saint Anthony bell all of you.

Anche quest'anno abbiamo celebrato la Festa di S.Antonio rispettando le regole della pandemia ancora in corso: distanza e mascherine. Sia per la S.Comunione che per la distribuzione del pane la gente e' rimasta al loro posto.
Abbiamo pregato per tutti gli assenti che di solito venivano da fuori Tripoli.
S.Antonio allontani dalla nostra societa' il Covid19 e tutti gli altri mali.



At Saint Francis Convent was celebrated a Christmas Mass with a little Procession. At the end of the religious service Father Quirico put the statue of the infant Jesus in the Crib.
After all the community was invited to cut and eat a Christmas cake and drink Champaign for this occasion.



Quest'anno per il Santo Natale le funzioni religiose sono cominciate la vigilia alle ore 18.00 a causa delle restrizioni Covid-19.
Oltre un piccolo numero di fedeli muniti di mascherine rispettando la distanza sociale erano presenti le Suore francescane del CIM venute da Adonis per animare i canti natalizi.
Alla fine della Messa e' stata fatta una piccola processione dall'altare fino al Presepio allestito in fondo alla Chiesa, dove il P. Quirico ha deposto il Bambino di Betlemme incensandolo piu' volte.
Dopo la funzione religiosa tutti sono stati invitati al salone dove e' stato tagliato e consumato un panettone bagnato da un bicchiere di spumante.


BUON NATALE E FELICE ANNO NUOVO A TUTTI.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

St. Clare renounced all her worldly goods, in spite of the opposition of her family; she received the penitential habit from the hands of Francis of Assisi, and founded the Second Franciscan Order ("Poor Clares"). She died in 1253.
