Spiritual Picture of the Day – Η πνευματική φωτογραφία της ημέρας (16)

English

Everything is to receive light from God. For this we must humble ourselves and follow an ascetic way of life in order to enlighten our soul, our heart and not to became, let’s say, «smarter».

This is especially true for bishops, because as Elder Paisios said, the life of the entire diocese is analogue with the life of its bishop.

Bellow is a candid shot of Avvidon Cyrillos at the Feast of the Holy Belt in the Holy Altar…See photo

Romanian

Totul este să primim luminare de la Dumnezeu. Pentru aceasta trebuie să ne smerim şi să urmăm un mod de viaţă ascetică pentru a ne lumina sufletul, inima şi nu să devenim, aşa-zicând «mai deştepţi».

Aceasta este adevărat în special pentru arhiepiscopi, pentru că aşa cum a zis p. Paisie Aghioritul, viaţa întregii eparhii este analoagă cu viaţa episcopului locului.

Greek

Όλα γίνονται για να λάβουμε φως από τον Θεό. Για αυτό πρέπει να ταπεινώνουμε τον εαυτό μας και να ακολουθούμε μια ασκητική ζωή προκειμένου να φωτίσουμε την ψυχή μας, την καρδιά μας, και να μην προσπαθούμε να γίνουμε «εξυπνότεροι».

Αυτό ισχύει ιδιαίτερα για τους επισκόπους, γιατί όπως είπε ο Γέροντας Παΐσιος, η ζωή της επισκοπής είναι ανάλογη με την ζωή του επισκόπου της.
