BISHOP OR CORFU, MR. NEKTARIOS: “ILLUSION THE REJECTION OF CHRIST”
On Sunday morning, February 2, 2020, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy, in the celebrating Church of The Presentation of Our Lord and Savior in the Temple.
Speaking to the faithful, the Bishop Corfu emphasized that Simeon was a man of prayer. He had attempted, as tradition says, to translate Isaiah’s passage about the virgin Mary and the birth of Emmanuel, had questioned such a possibility by his logic, and received a point and information from God that this was possible. And he took Christ’s savior in his hands as a confirmation of this in the logically impossible. Christ met in the face of the ambassador Simeon all mankind! And humanity continues to see Christ as a point of contention, as Symeon said in Our Lady. Humans are called to say YES to the salvation that Christ offers and not to be deceived that he can be saved by himself, that he can reject God and live. Christ is our salvation. Anyone who accepts him, especially in the mystery of Divine Communion. Let us pre-empt it, let us make Him a purifier of our senses, let us fight for the virtues that the Lord gives us and ask us to have!
