Martyrs in the 20th Century. Martyrs in the 1st Century.

2015 GanteghToday is the Feast of St. Voski and his Companions, a group of priests who were among the first Christians to be martyred on Armenian soil just decades after Christ. Followers of St. Thaddeus the Apostle, St. Voski and his priest-companions dared to bring the news of a new god—indeed, the only true God—to a people who were quite content to follow the pagan status quo.

Two thousand years later, 1.5 million native Armenian Christians would lay down their lives on their native land out of their deepest conviction that in that same True God, Jesus Christ, the end of this earthly life was merely the turning of the page of a divine and eternal book of life.

Today the Armenian Church in its native homeland and throughout the world pushes on, inspired by that same faith, to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to a world that so desperately looks for true peace, true meaning and true hope.

    Artful, Honest Armenian genes 
Are Singing ~ Dancing ~ Serenading

    Spreading Joy and Happiness once again…

    God left us to be genocided …

    But we’re honest race …
    We can’t betray anyone …

    Still praying for him …

    Without asking any help any more from anyone.
We can stand on our legs and dance again
No one can paralyze our artful limbs. 

    Hence our nation existed before Christ 

    Armenianism is our Faith, 

    Our Eternal religion…
    No one can vanish such an artful race…
