Christmas Feast of the Catechetical Schools of the Archieratic Region of Lefkimmi
On Saturday, December 22, 2018, at the Spiritual Centre “Panagia Odigitria”, the Christmas Feast of the Catechetical Schools of the Archieratic Region of Lefkimmi took place.
In his greeting, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios, having expressed his great joy for the participation of so many young people in this feast, underlined that the clarity of heart and innocence cannot be found anywhere else, but in the hearts of little children.
The great feast of the Birth of Son and Word of God, invited us to become little children, to abolish sin, wickedness, evil thoughts, passions and to endure love, peace, justice and forgiveness. If we do not become like little children, we will not deserve to experience the Kingdom of God.
The Lord takes human flesh, in order for us to participate in the Divine Grace, through the Mystical Life of our Church. That’s why Christmas are not meant to be, without Christ, the participation in the Divine Mystery of the Holy Communion.
Moreover, the Bishop of Corfu thanked the Archimandrite father Seraphim Linosporis, Preacher of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu, who for many years, works in Lefkimmi, but also the other priests of the region and the parish partners, for the spiritual work they offer.
In his closing, Mr. Nektarios wished everyone a well and blessed Christmas.
