Day 11: daily lent practice: How? Serve others

Category : Upcoming Events

“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only
do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but
through love serve one another.” (Gal 5:13)

“After every Liturgy, [St Pope Kyrillos VI] would
stand for hours upon hours as the multitudes embraced
him for his blessings. The Metropolitans and Bishops
witnessing his evident fatigue and sweat, urged him,
in their pity, to take rest. However, St Kyrillos, in his
selfless love, would not even dare to upset a single
member of his congregation by turning them away.
Furthermore, the Pope opened his doors to anyone
and everyone that needed him, placing no restrictions
on time; there was no such thing as ‘after hours’ in this
Patriarch’s schedule. Even when St Kyrillos himself
had been asleep, he would be awakened by his patron
Saint and informed of the matter of the one who seeks
him, before even speaking a word to that very person
in the first place.”
