Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh, †August 4, 2003
A Homily preached on Sunday, August 14, 1983:
Synopsis: First of all, of course we need to see our our own weakness, our own need for God’s help to do anything good, as well as to see God’s great love for both ourselves and for all people, for He made us all in his image. If we are tho help others who are blind, deaf, and dull, some both physically and spiritually, others only spiritually, to see God’s love and their greatness (made as they are in God’s image) and strive to fulfill the purity that is our high calling, we must be continually doing so ourselves. God sees us all according to the eternal beauty in which He created us. Let us strive to fulfill this beauty in reality, and encourage and exhort those around us to do the same. In Christ we are able!
