Bishop of Corfu, Mr. Nektarios” The reason behind dividing is selfishness”
On Sunday, July 14, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the Holy Church of Saint Spyridon the Wonderworker.
In his sermon, the Bishop of Corfu pointed out that the celebrated 630 Holy Fathers who convened the 4th Chalcedon Ecumenical Council orthodoxized the word of truth, condemned the falsehood and error, and preserved our unity, the Lord in His heavenly Father, before His Passion in Gethsemane. The Guardian of the unity of faith and the communion of the Holy Spirit is the Body of Christ, the pillar and the abode of truth, according to the Apostle Paul (1 Tim. 3:15).
In addition, His Eminence emphasized that the desire for unity is inherent in people. That is why, over the centuries, efforts have been made and continue to this day to unite people, either through globalization or the establishment of multinational organizations. UN, EU These attempts, however, are false and have failed because they are not centered on Jesus Christ and operate purely secular, for the purpose of domination and domination. The cause of the divisions and the schisms is selfishness. This serious illness is cured by the humiliation and the life of Christ, sponsored by our Holy Church.
Concluding Mr Nektarios, welcoming the numerous pilgrims from Russia, Ukraine and the Balkan countries, he emphasized the need for the whole Orthodox world to remain united and not succumb to political and geostrategic games aimed at the divisive. We have nothing but to imitate the Holy Fathers, confessing our Orthodox faith in a mouth and a heart.
