Celebrating the Disciples in H.M in Corfu


Celebrating the Disciples in H.M in Corfu

On Sunday, June 30, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the celebrating holy Church of Saint Disciples in Kobitsi.

In his sermon, the Bishop of Corfu pointed out that the Lord made His disciples people who may not have had the knowledge they had, but had a pure heart and humility. The Twelve Disciples, the Seventy, and then the Apostolic Fathers proclaimed, at Christ’s command, the ends of the Gospel of truth and hope. Their faith in the God-Man Jesus Christ and the help of the Apocalypse was so great that most of the Holy Apostles witnessed a crucifixion.

In addition,his Eminence noted that in every human being the question arises whether God, as the Almighty, could preach to all people on earth, for one single reason, without the Apostles and their present successors, the Bishops. The answer is, of course, in the affirmative. But Christ makes each of us His fellow workers in the work of salvation. Out of love He wants the participation and submission of man to his brother.
Moreover, Mr. Nektarios, referring to our time, underlined his great joy, since our country is in a spiritual “alarm”. Every day more and more people, especially young people, realize that their only response is Christ and His Church. On the other hand, globalization implies religious faith, in the light of the synchronicity with the permanent doctrine that all religions believe in the same God. Also the human face is degraded and enlarged, but also the identity, history and traditions of our Nation are abolished.

Concluding, His Eminence wished the faithful Saints to be the guides in their lives.
