Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

What Proved to Me the Gospel of Christ Was True (Metr. Athanasios of Limassol)


By Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol
 
When I first met Elder Paisios, within me - although I was a young child 18-18.5 years old - I said that indeed, what Christ said is true!

Since this man exists and since this man lives and I saw him with my own eyes and I experienced life with him afterwards - I lived with him for 16 whole years - then everything that the Gospel says is true!

That is why God called Himself:

"The God of your Fathers".

God said when He revealed Himself in the Old Testament:

"I am the God of Abraham, of Isaac, of Jacob, the God of your fathers."

So God is the God of our Fathers, the God of the Saints, Who through the Holy Life of His beloved children proved the truth of His words.
