Metropolitan's Message

amfilochios kisamou“We replaced wisdom with knowledge and now we have replaced knowledge with information”, writes Thomas Eliot in “Waste Land”. Could we possibly make the Internet an important pastoral tool in the hands of the Church? Could the millions of people who daily surf the cyberworld palpate hope and discover the wonders of God and people via the Internet?"

«Λοιπόν, θέλεις δεν θέλεις σε ξαναβάζουν, με όσα ακούς και διαβάζεις, στο «τριπάκι» γύρω από το λείψανο της αγίας Βαρβάρας. Βέβαια, όποιος δεν πέρασε από την «ουρά» για να προσκυνήσει, δεν μπορεί να αντιληφθεί τη δύναμη που έχει το εφτασφράγιστο κουτί.

Curse instead of a blessing (Only In Greek)

Πολλοί καταριούνται με μεγάλη ευκολία ακόμα και τα ίδια τους τα παιδιά. Κατάρα είναι και το «ανάθεμά σε», «αναθεματισμένε» ή να στέλνεις και κάποιον στο διάβολο. «Τί, λοιπόν, είναι αυ­τό το ανάθεμα που λες; Δε σημαίνει αυτός να πάει στο διάβολο, να χάσει τη δυ­νατότητα σωτηρίας και να αποξενωθεί από το Χριστό; Και ποιός είσαι εσύ; Αυ­τό είναι το έργο της εξουσίας και της με­γάλης δυνάμεως του Θεού… Γιατί, λοιπόν, ανέλαβες εσύ ένα τέτοιο έργο;» (Ι. Χρυσόστομος).
