Bishop of Corfu, Mr. Nektarios” Let’s not neglect the gifts given to us by God”
On Monday, July 8, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the celebrating Church of Saint Prokopios, in the villafe with the same name.
The Bishop of Corfu also pointed out that our time is very similar to that of Saint Prokopios. And today the persecutors of Christ are many and impose on our whole society, any perversion and anomaly the human mind can give birth to, while simultaneously pursuing self-promotion and self-sacrifice (neo-patriotism). Everyone is free, even if they do not believe in God. But it has no right to vote against laws or to embarrass and undermine the faith of the Orthodox Greeks who are the overwhelming majority of our people. What we need on our part is not to neglect the great gift given to us and is no more than faith in the true God.
In closing, Mr. Nektarios asked the faithful to arm themselves with a spirit of bravery and resistance against temptation and sin, through the embassies of the Saint.
