Christmas Divine Liturgy in Corfu
With particular glory, the Matin and the Christmas Divine Liturgy took place in the Metropolitan Church of Virgin Mary the Spilaiotissa by his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios.
Instead of preaching, the Christmas Message of his Eminence was read.
In the end of the Divine Liturgy, Mr. Nektarios wished to the loyal Christians that the newly born Christ will give His Light to this world. With the comprising of Son and Word of God, the Paradise was reopened for the fallen human, giving to them the possibility of Eternity and Communication with the Triadic God.
Moreover, the Bishop of Corfu encouraged the loyal Christians to clean their hearts, with spiritual fighting in order for our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Saviour of this World, to be born in their hearts.
It should be noted that many people participated in the Holy Communion. This fact is a big proof that our Church is the only one to offer comfort to people in the modern society.
Furthermore, his Eminence visited the Chronically Suffering People’s Foundation “The Platytera”, where he gave as a blessing, melomakarona and kourabiedes (Greek Christmas sweets) and wished to the personnel and the ones who live there “Merry Christmas”.
