Translating from Greek to English
« on: August 02, 2018, 08:26:33 PM »
My wife & I were at the traditional Emmaus site near Jerusalem and we found this inscription.  I've tried to use google translate on it with no success.  Could anyone translate this into English?  Thank You!

Just found my new Facebook cover. Superb.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth
