Metropolitan Augoustinos on signs of faith in a faithless world.
Metropolitan Augoustinos of Florina tells us about signs of faith in a faithless world:
Amid all the coldness that transforms people’s hearts into snowballs, there are still sparks—burning coals and hearths of spiritual life in the modern world. Wherever a child stammers a quick prayer through innocent lips; wherever a boy or girl actively listens to catechetical lessons and sings joyous songs to the resurrected Lord…wherever there is a mighty battle against the dark powers…wherever there are holy pulsations; wherever hearts are warmed in reading the Scriptures—there are the sparks, the blazing coals, the spiritual hearth, the living Church.
"As the parish priest for a mission in New Zealand, I have found AFR to be a very valuable resource for teaching both in the parish and to the wider non-Orthodox community. Indeed, it is probably my most valuable resource at present."
