We understand deprivation when we’ve got nothing to eat. We’re not aware of any lack when we don’t have God in our lives. It’s terrible. It’s terrible. As if there’s no need for God! But the need for God’s greater than the need for air. It’s greater than the need for food. I know what I’m saying now seems very strange. But the big mistake is that it sounds strange, when it’s really self-evident. God’s missing. So this is what we have to give. As the Church. To ourselves as a conviction and then we’ve got to get it out.
His Eminence Metropolitan Nikolaos of Mesogaia and Lavreotiki, in an interview, speaks of material desires and the hidden need among people today.
