  • Bishop Siluan celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Nativity of the Lord Metropolitan Cathedral on the Fifth Sunday after Pascha

    With the blessing of His Eminence Vladimir, Metropolitan of Chisinau and All Moldova, Vicar Bishop Siluan of Orthei celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Nativity of the Lord Metropolitan Cathedral in Chisinau on the Fifth Sunday after Pascha – the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman.

    Bishop Siluan was assisted at the service by the Cathedral priests and deacons.

    In the archpastoral guidance message after the Gospel Reading, His Grace Siluan underlined that Lord Jesus Christ is the Water of Life, calling us to seek the Heavenly Kingdom and life eternal. Salvation is possible only if people seek to take this water of life, that is, to live in Christ, for Christ, and with Christ, according to His Gospel.

    Today’s Sunday coincided with the Feast of St. George the Victory Bearer, who suffered martyrdom on 23 April, 303. St. George, who had been a military in emperor Deocletian’s army, witnessed his faith in the true Emperor and King of Kings – Lord Jesus Christ, and was exposed to inhuman tortures and martyrdom for this. However, he was the one who bore victory over his torturers, for Christ strengthened His devoted servant. Thus, St. George shows to the world that true victory over evil is possible only within our Lord Jesus Christ, and there is no physical torture that can ever subdue someone who truly loves God and is determined to remain unshaken and steady even for the fear of pain and death.
