    Cyprus reminds us of Saint Paul and saint Barnabas, and their persecutions,in order to spread the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    When Saint Barnabas and Saint Paul had long preached in the city of Antioch, the angel of God appeared to Saint Paul and said to him: Go hastily in to Jerusalem, for thou shalt find there some of the brethren that abide thee. Then Barnabas would go in to Cyprus to visit his friends and kin that were there, and Saint Paul would go to Jerusalem thus departed that one from that other by enticement of the Holy Ghost, that so had ordained it.

    And when Saint Paul had showed to Saint Barnabas this that the angel said, Saint Barnabas answered to him: The will of God be done like as he hath ordained it. I go now into Cyprus, and more hereafter shall I not see thee, for there shall I end my life. Then he humbly kneeled down and fell to his feet weeping, and Saint Paul, which had compassion of him, said unto him these words by consolation: Barnabas, weep no more, for our Lord will that it be so, our Lord hath appeared to me this night, and hath said to me: Let not ne give none empeshment to Barnabas for to go into Cyprus, for he shall there enlumine many folk and shall suffer there martyrdom.
    May God bless and protect the Indian community of Cyprus.
