Concerning the Confession of the Saints
The Gospel says that, once when the lepers saw Christ from afar, they began calling him saying “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us” (Luke 17:13). The Lord cured them. Those of us who believe in Christ should not hide our feelings and our faith, but we must raise our voice and confess Christ. No power should be able to close our mouths. Everywhere and always we must preach and confess Christ and Orthodoxy. In this way the world would be cured from the leprosy of sin and error. The word of Christ is an omnipotent physician. Saint Maximos preached this word of Christ with an indomitable courage. He became one of the most indomitable preachers and confessors of Orthodoxy. Le us also imitate him in this difficult time we are living.
