Listen as Dimitris Karavasilis, host of True Life- a Greek production of the Orthodox Christian Network, offers a reflection to enlighten our daily lives with the light of Scripture and wisdom of the Church fathers. This week: Comforting with Acts

Παρηγορία με πράξεις

Ο Άγιος Γρηγόριος μας θυμίζει με αφορμή την ανάσταση του γιού της χήρας, οτι δεν αρκεί να παρηγορούμε κάποιον αλλά να βρούμε τρόπους να απαλύνουμε τον πόνο της, όπως κι Εκείνος δεν έμεινε στα λόγια αλλά ανάστησε τον γιο της!

Comfort with Action

St Gregory reminds us that we should comfort one another not only with words but following our Lord’s example, with action. He did not just comfort the widow, but He raised her son from the dead.  We should try to comfort with actions!
