“Love in Christ is a sacrificial Love, a self-sacrificing, self-denying Love, Agape. You sacrifice everything for the person you love, “your neighbour”. By “our neighbour”, we mean every person as God’s Image, even our enemy. By “love” we do not mean that we should do whatever the other person wants us to do, but to love him with Christ’s burning and flaming Heart, for his salvation” (+ Elder Gregorios Papasotiriou)
This is how we have always felt and feel his love. Blessed Paradise, Elder. “Kai sta dika mas.” “And to our own!” May we be reunited with you in Heaven in God’s Kairos!
All the faithful present experienced an urge to pray to Elder, and not for him.
