Saint Antonios’ celebration in the Holy Metropolis of Corfu
On Thursday, January 17, 2019, the Matin and the Divine Liturgy were made at the celebrating historical church of Saint Antonios, in Corfu town, with his Eminence, the Bishop of Vrestheni, Mr. Theoklitos, after the invitation of his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios, who is in Jerusalem, with many worshippers of the Holy Metropolis of Corfu.
In his preaching, the Bishop of Vrestheni, having thanked Mr. Nektarios praied the personality of the “professor of the desert”, Great Antonios. He was a great eremite with the Grace of the Holy Spirit won the evil and sin, living according to the Divine Will.
We as Orthodox Christians, continued Mr. Theoklitos, even if we are in this world, we do not come from this world and we are invited by Lord to fight spiritually, in an era where everything is mocked. Especially in our homeland, we notice the issue on FYROM, the alteration of our history and the fight against our Church. When someone does not fear God, he/she is merciless.
In his closing, Mr. Theoklitos invited the faithful ones to remain solid in Orthodox faith and keep Greece’s history and tradition solid.
