Well-Timed Articles 1995-2015
The articles from twenty years of episcopal ministry (1995-2015), which are published in the present volume, show the concerns and struggles of a Bishop with regard to crucial current events in the local Church and in society at large.
The Church, as ecclesiastical history demonstrates, can bring about profound changes through the regeneration of human beings and by participating in social developments. Even today, the pastoral ministry can alter many things. The Church is in dialogue with the world in order to transform it. On every anthropological subject it has something essential and dynamic to say. It is a centre of life and a source of civilisation. It is the unifying hope of society. It responds through its theology and life to every dilemma, and can give vision and meaning to the lives of people from every political and social background. This is a book that takes a responsible approach to contemporary social and cultural events and offers readers an Orthodox assessment of events.
