On Sunday, September 23 2018, the Matin and the Divine Liturgy took place in the Holy Church of Saint Spyridon the Wonderworker.
In his preaching, his Eminence the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands Mr. Nektarios analysed the Gospel’s Part of the Day underlining that the Lord intervenes in the personal and familial life of the people and thus, transforms them in total.
God does not enter the heart of the faithful because He wants to imprison them. He does not want to take advantage of the freedom that he donated to them.
When there is cooperation between humans and God, then a miracle happens. Through this cooperation, our Lord gives His Uncreated Grace, the power that transforms everything.
Each one’s faith becomes internal power and weapon against the enemy of our salvation, the Devil, when it is clear and is not about themselves or the modern idols.
Faith to Jesus Christ becomes hope, truth and salvation. Based on each Christian’s way of life, the others take examples. Thus, they become fishermen of souls, like Saint Disciples, showing the way of real salvation, Sanctification and Communication with God.
In his closing, Mr. Nektarios invited the loyal Christians to turn their hearts and their thoughts to the Lord of Glory in order to have their hearts filled by the Divine Grace.
