Bulgaria: Bulgarian Patriarch with Easter Address facebook

In a patriarchal Easter message, which will be read from the church pulpit on the holiday of Resurrection of Christ, Bulgarian Patriarch Neophyte will address all orthodox Christians.

"It is disturbing that even today, two millennia after the Resurrection of Christ and all the other saving events of sacred history, the world we live in continues to be torn apart by injustices and contradictions, by wars and all kinds of hatred and violence"

Patriarch Neophyte notes that the world we live in continues to be sick, fallen into passions and sins.

"Suffering from human laziness in the great God-man work of salvation - a world in which the eternal gospel values ​​and heavenly treasures that Christ advises us to gather are increasingly displaced by unseen selfishness and egoism, by a passion for possession and consumption that already threatens not only our moral foundations, but also the very life of the earth we inhabit. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that today it is increasingly difficult for humanity to live in peace both with itself and with the surrounding nature," said the message.

"We should not be surprised by the answers |mankind receives from nature because of its growing greed and passionate insatiability, because of the increasingly visible rejection of the vocation to be a good and reasonable master of the world entrusted to us by God," added the patriarch Neophyte.

In conclusion, he called on the orthodox laity to follow this path to salvation and eternal life, not deviating from it "neither to the left nor to the right".
