The three days of Ba’utha d-Ninwayeh is always a time of special penitence in the Chaldean church. One way this is expressed is through fasting until noon and then abstaining from meat and dairy the rest of the day. Chaldean churches throughout the world hold prayer services for Ba’utha along with Communion Service or Holy Mass. At St. Peter Cathedral, the faithful have three different prayer services to choose from every day. Every morning and afternoon, the Ba’utha prayers are said in Chaldean. This year, a third service was offered in English.
May God hear our Ba’utha and have mercy on us.
