On Saturday, March 7, 2020, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the celebrating monastery of Saint Theodoroi in Kamara.
Mr. Nektarios, after reminding the faithful of the miracles of the Theodoros of Tironos, pointed out that the issue of fasting is a serious issue for Christians. Both physical and spiritual fasting cut off the same will and give spiritual power to man so that he can resist evil. The second point pointed out by the Metropolitan of Corfu was the fact that the then authorities wanted to contaminate the food in order to harm the Christians. The powers of every age do not save us, but only God who created us and recreates us, ascended to the cross of love, and called us all to the path of love. No one can relieve us of the tribulations of the times. Only Christ saves and continues to save.
Let us imitate, Mr. Nektarios concluded, the example of St. Theodore and let us abstain not only from physical foods, but also from every passion, every evil, every sin.
