Episcopal Vesper in the Church of Saint Spyridon in Corfu
The worshipping events in Saint Spyridon’s church for his memory continue successfully. On Tuesday afternoon, December 12, 2017 an Episcopal Vesper was made by his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands Mr. Nektarios. In his preaching, the Bishop of Corfu pointed out that Saint Spyridon imitated Christ in his life.
He preached and defended the truth of Orthodox Faith and he sacrificed himself for his people. His whole life is characterised by his humbleness and spirit of sacrifice and ministry. Even today, continued the Bishop, Saint Spyridon keeps helping people, giving them God’s grace through his miracles.
His incorruptible Body validates our common Resurrection and eternal life, through the relationship between Triadic God and humans.
In his closing, Mr. Nektarios invited the loyal people to imitate Saint Spyridon’s life and live their lives in the path towards Salvation and unification with the one true God.
