The new Regional Government assumed its duties
On Monday afternoon, August 26, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Blessing service and the swearing-in ceremony of the new Regional Government of the Ionian Islands, Mrs. Rodi Kratsa and the new members in the Ionian Academy.
In his greeting, His Eminence pointed out that the solution to the many problems plaguing the Ionian Islands requires unity. Not only the internal power of each elect, but also the height of the elect, is not enough. As the Apostle Paul points out, it is not only human wisdom that is needed, but above all, the wisdom that comes from above. When one touches the One on whom His life depends, then one has the blessing of Christ. Many have dared and are still continuing in the world community the experiment of God ‘s extermination of human life and their idolatry. But we are all witnesses of their failure, which drives entire societies into disaster.
Concluding, the Bishop of Corfu wished a good and blessed term to both Mrs. Kratsa and the members of the new Regional Council, assuring that the local Church would be a helper in every good work of the Ionian Islands Region for the benefit of the people.
