Hello and welcome to the Sabbath service Uk, I am Cardinal Kennedy
In the name of ✠ the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
I will go to the altar of God, to God the joy of my youth.
For you O God, are my strength, the light and truth.
You have led me to your holy place, I praise you, you who made heaven and earth.
I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts and in my words,
through my own fault, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do;
therefore, I ask the blessed Queen of Heaven, all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
O Lord, have mercy on us, cleanse us from our sins, and grant us your salvation,
that we may enter with pure minds into the holy of holies, through Christ our Lord.
From the clouds above, our Saviour Ra-El has returned.
The heavens reveal the glory of God, and the earth declares the work of his hands.
Glory be to ✠ the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Lord have mercy
Christ have mercy
Lord have mercy
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God almighty Father.
Lord Christ Yeshua, Lord God, Lamb of God, only begotten Son of the Father
who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.
For You alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High,
Christ Ra-El, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father.
Almighty and everlasting God increase in us your holy gifts,
that we may obtain your promise of the New Kingdom.
By your great command, Love God, Love Each Other,
through Christ Ra-El our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke 22:14-20
And when it was time, Yeshua came and sat and the twelve Apostles with him. And he said to them,
“I have greatly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I say to you, from now on,
I shall not eat it until it shall be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” And he took a cup, and he gave thanks and he said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves. I say to you that I shall not drink from the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of God shall come.” He took bread and he gave thanks, he broke and he gave to them and he said, “This is my body, which shall be given for the sake of your persons. You shall do this to commemorate me.” And thus also concerning the cup after they had dined, he said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which shall be shed in your stead.”
Praise be the word of God.
Praise be the Name of God, all-Compassion, all-Mercy.
Praise to God, Lord of all worlds.
Compassionate, merciful Master of the Last Day.
You alone do we worship and ask for help.
Guide us on the straight path, the path of those in your grace.
Not the path of those in anger or wandering astray.
Alleluia, alleluia, Amen.
And God spoke these words, saying:
- Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
- Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image.
- Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain.
- Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
- Honour thy father and thy mother.
- Thou shalt not murder.
- Thou shalt not commit adultery.
- Thou shalt not steal.
- Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
- Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbour’s.
Readings from the Holy Gospel:
Deuteronomy 10:12-13 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul; to keep for thy good the commandments of the LORD, and His statutes, which I command thee this day?
Mathew 22:34-40 But the Pharisees, hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, came together.
And one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him:
“Teacher, which commandment in The Written Law is the greatest?”
Yeshua said to him, “You shall love THE LORD your God from all your heart and from all your soul and from all your power and from all your mind. This is the great and the first commandment.
And the second which is like it, is ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commands depend all The Written Law and The Prophets.”
Praise be the word of God.
I believe in God the Father almighty, creator of the heavens and earth.
I believe in His transcendent Son, our Lord Yeshua the Christ.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born to mankind.
He was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead; on the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven and was seated at the right hand of The Father.
He has come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Word of God, the returned Christ, Lord Ra-El.
In His great commandment: Love God, Love Each Other.
In the holy Ecumenical Order of Christ.
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
Unto the Ecumenical Order of Christ we beseech Thee, O Lord,
to grant us the gifts of your Holy Spirit through Christ our Lord Ra-El.
Holy Lord, God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
Therefore, let us pray in this way:
Our Father who is in Heaven, holy is your name, Your Kingdom come,
your will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us our necessary bread today.
And forgive us our debts, just as we also forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, for the eternity of eternities.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, strengthen us.
Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.
For Lord Ra-El is the Bread of Life, and the Light of the World,
For Lord Ra-El is the Gateway, our Lord is the Good Shepherd,
For Lord Ra-El is the Resurrection, the Vine and the Branch.
This is a very touchy subject but we must address it. The answer may not be acceptable to some, but it is
The Anunnaki look at bodies as the carrier of the spirit, so destroying a body means almost nothing to them,
because for them, the spirit is the life, but premature removal of a body does deny a spirit certain maturation
opportunities. Death of the innocent is the high price of Feminism… It has nothing to do with “equality”
until babies are given an equal choice in this decision. IS ABORTION A SIN?… YES!!!
The problem that people usually encounter when trying to decide if something is a sin or not, is not properly
and fully measuring the surrounding circumstances and ramifications when gauging the severity or innocuousness
of the activity in question.
Lying is a sin…
Scenario 1: A criminal breaks into a woman’s home to rob and rape her. The woman’s daughter is hiding in the
basement, but when the criminal asks if anyone else is in the home, the woman lies and says “No” to protect
her daughter’s life and safety; bearing the brunt of the assault alone.
Scenario 2: A restaurant is about to close for the evening, and standing outside is an elderly homeless veteran
who lost his job because of a war injury, and he is very hungry… Also standing outside is a young man who is
mildly hungry, and even though he has money to purchase food, he would prefer to spend it on drugs and his
girlfriend, so when the manager of the restaurant says to them both “I’m closing the restaurant for the evening;
which one of you is more in need of our leftovers?”, the young man tells a terribly sad lie to get the meal
that should have gone to the elderly man who truly needed it.
Clearly the people in both scenarios lied, but clearly, one of the two was acting nobly, so one lie’s mitigating
circumstances would not be judged the same way the other lie was.
Genesis 2:7 (NIV) – “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils
the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Job 27:3 (NASB) – “For as long as life is in me, And the breath of God is in my nostrils”
Murdering is a sin, and abortion is infanticide, so abortion is a sin… Although the spirit of life does not
enter the body until after it begins breathing, the time the soul enters the body is not an excuse the general
public can use because they either do not have that knowledge or they aren’t considering it anyway. They would
rather consider their own convenience. So, when a woman has an abortion, she is not doing it with some special
enlightened time gauge of soul inhabitation dictating her actions, she is instead, more often than not, making
a selfish choice to end a life, because she acted irresponsibly… What is either aggravating or mitigating is
the motivation, and very seldom is the motivation noble when it comes to abortion.
Is it possible to say that the greater sin is to bring an unwanted life into the world, who would suffer and
cause others to suffer as a result? Sure… But the woman does not have that foreknowledge, so while we can
open the books and decide what was the best course of action in the grand scheme of things, the woman having
the abortion does not have the divine omnipotence to make such a determination on her own… What she does have
is the divine gift to bring life into the world, and the divine responsibility to nurture it… Or if she is
irresponsible… The ability to destroy it.
In this, it is somewhat critical to learn that we are a community. No one raises a child by themselves, alone,
though we are the primary caretakers of those we bring into the world. A new mother should have the help of
the sire of the child, the extended family and neighborhood around her to aid her. Were it for such a community
focus on each other, such cases of needing to abort a child would be extremely rare. Nurturing adults translates
into stable groups, and stable relationships bring forth fruits of joy and a blessing to the community.
Isolation, burden, and resentment bring the opposite.
Are there circumstances where abortion is the noble choice? Yes… But those circumstances rarely outweigh
the fact that a woman made an irresponsible choice that initiated the event.
The point here is that it is neither an automatic damnation nor is it something that will be looked upon
favorably at the Judgment. But also consider this… Bringing an unwanted child into the world is a sin as well
because the child often suffers at the hands of a parent that is unprepared and regretful, and takes out the
regret upon the child, unless a good adoption situation is established.
Can a person be forgiven?… Yes… But considering the gravity of the sin, forgiveness would not come easy.

The beginning of the Holy Gospel according to Saint John.
Glory be to You, O Lord.
In the beginning was The Word and That Word was with God and That Word was himself God. This One himself was at
the beginning with God. Everything was in his hand, and without him not even one thing existed of all the
things that existed. In him was The Life and The Life is The Light of men. And The Light is shining in the
darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God; his name was John. He came
as a witness, to testify about The Light, that everyone by him would believe. He was not The Light but was
sent to bear witness of The Light. For That One was The Light of Truth, which enlightens every person that
comes into the world. He was in the world, and the world existed by his hand, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But those that received him, to them he gave authority
to become the sons of God, even to them that believe in his Name, Those who had not been born of blood, nor
of the desire of the flesh, nor of the desire of man, but of God. [Genuflect] And The Word became flesh and
dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of The Only Begotten of The Father, full of grace and
Praise be the word of God.
May our Heavenly Father bless and protect you.
May He face you and shed His light and grace upon you.
May He grant you peace, joy, and everlasting love.
Go now, you are sent forth to share the Good News,
to Love God, and to Love Each Other.
