Λόγος Πανηγυρικός Ναυμαχία Σάμου 5 Αυγούστου 1824

Τό ἐπ’ ἐμοί, ἐν ὅσω ζῶ καί ἀναπνέω καί σωφρονῶ, δέν θά παύσω, ἰδίως κατά τάς πανεκλάμπρους ταύτας ἡμέρας, νά ὑμνῶ μετά λατρείας τόν Χριστόν μου, νά περιγράφω μετ’ ἔρωτος τήν φύσιν καί νά ζωγραφῶ μετά στοργῆς τά γνήσια Ἑλληνικά ἔθη.

Διακονητές και όχι Δυνάστες

Διακονητές και όχι Δυνάστες

Μέσα στην κοινωνία της Εκκλησίας ο κάθε χριστιανός λαμβάνει χαρίσματα από το Πανάγιο Πνεύμα. Μερικοί νομίζουν ότι το χάρισμα είναι αποτέλεσμα της δικής τους «εργασίας», αμοιβή για τον «αγώνα» και «τά βάσανα» που υπέστησαν.

About Humility

About Humility

Abba Dorotheos said: “Once, when Abba Zosimas was talking about humility, one of the Sophist philosophers was there, listening to what he was saying. He wanted to learn exactly what he meant and he asked him, “Tell me, why do you consider yourself to be a sinner? Do you not know that you are a saint? Do you not know that you have virtues? Can you not see that you are practising the commandments? How can you believe that you are a sinner since you do all these things?”

About Evil, Sorrows, Pain and Death in the World

The fact of Christ’s Resurrection also provides the answer to the question of why evil, sorrows, pain and death are found in the world. Evil, death, and everything that wounds us were not created by God. All these things were caused by us, and we are the ones who perpetuate them by making bad use of the freedom that God has given to us. If today there are children who die from hunger, this is not God’s doing. It is our fault, for we do not wish to sacrifice our comfortable lives, and we prefer to bury various kinds of food to prevent prices from falling and to generate higher profits.

Celebrating the Feast of Ascension

Celebrating the Feast of Ascension

The Ascension as the pinnacle of the Feasts of the Lord: How bright and wonderful is this Feast! It is the pinnacle of all the Feasts of the Lord, because with it the sacred and saving purpose of the Divine Incarnation and Inhomination of the Word of God is completed. For what purpose did the Son and Word of God become man, and underwent the passion, the death, the resurrection…and the ascension? All these events took place so that the human nature might not remain below on the earth, but be raised to heaven, become deified and glorified according to the Creator’s original design.
