A CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM MILESI, GREECE FROM THE RETREAT CENTER ST. PORPHYRIOS BUILT BEFORE HE DEPARTED THIS WORLD















A CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FROM MILESI, GREECE
FROM THE RETREAT CENTER ST. PORPHYRIOS BUILT BEFORE HE
DEPARTED THIS WORLD

Christ is born, glorify Him.  Christ is come from heaven receive Him. Christ is on earth: be exalted.  All the earth sings to the Lord, and all the people, praise Him in joy, for He has been glorified.  (A Christmas hymn of our Church)

A COMMENTARY OF ST. PORPHYRIOS
GOD’S ENCOUNER WITH MANKIND

 Adam having been exiled from paradise, our Brother now comes to our humble cave bringing with him divine Grace and Love.

The Father, through His Son restores to us the community of love, which is an event that is greater than all other events that have ever happened in the universe.

Let us therefore accept with thanksgiving our unique Visitor.  Let us rejoice in this visit and thank Him for bringing us His message that our Father truly loves us.

What is more important than this?
What is greater than this?

We can now forgive one another because only with a forgiving heart can we truly welcome the greatest of Visitors of all time who will now dwell with us for all eternity.
