On Sunday, May 6th, 2018, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the Church of Virgin Mary of Fontana, in Paxoi.
In his preaching, the Bishop of Corfu analysed the revelation of the Lord in the Samaritan Woman, that He was the Christ, the one sent by God. The Lord advised the Samaritan Woman on how people should worship God in spirit and in truth.
God is Light, it is the Truth, He is the living water and from heaven comes bread. God is not only worshiped in one place, but primarily in the heart of man. On the other hand, Saint Foteini confessed, in front of people, Christ.
Moreover, his Eminence emphasized the fact that during the period we are going, we as Christians exchange the easter greeting, Christ Risen, True He is Risen. This is not a wish, but a confession. This faith gave power to the Holy Apostles, to preach the Gospel of truth.
The Lord, through His Resurrection, abolished the ultimate enemy of the human race, death, giving us eternal life. Without this faith in the Resurrection, the Church’s preaching would be meaningless. There is no greater truth than the Resurrection of Christ. The modern human tried to eliminate God from their life and experiences daily the tragic results of this behavior, while at the same time estimating their error.
In conclusion, Mr. Nektarios asked the faithful to support their hope in the Risen Christ, the cornerstone of people’s lives.
