Tonsure of a nun in the Holy Metropolis of Corfu
On Monday morning, December 2, 2019, his Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios did the Divine Liturgy in the Holy Monastery of SAint Athanasios in Agros, on the occasion of Saint Porfyrios the Kaysokalyvittis’ memory.
Addressing the new nun Paramythia, his Eminence stressed that monks and nuns should always remember their lonely promises until the end of their lives. Guaranteed spiritual in the great battle against evil monks and nuns have the security of the spiritual pen, which is the monastery. A place of prayer and worship of God, one monk’s support for one another, one nun for another.
In this struggle the wish of the simple, humble and full of love of Saint Porphyrius the Kaysokalyvittis becomes possessed and interceded with the almighty God. And the solitary ministry becomes joy, both for the new great nun, and for Elder Euphemia, the worshiper of the Holy Monastery.
Immediately afterwards, His Eminence read the wish of Patience for the nun.
