A beautifully articulated post from our very own Dr Mario Baghos on the slanderous campaign against our Father and Archbishop.
"It is no surprise that this persecution erupted during Holy and Great Lent, which, according to Orthodox tradition, is when the activity of the evil spirits is more intense because of their desire to disrupt the spiritual efforts of Christians and the Church before Pascha. May all Greek Orthodox Christians in Australia express their commitment to our Lord Jesus Christ by supporting His appointed hierarch here in the Antipodes, that we may with one voice exclaim “Christ is Risen” at Easter. Indeed, I believe that it is incumbent upon Greek Orthodox Christians—and Christians everywhere, along with all people of good will—to support Archbishop Makarios in this trying time. May our Great God and Saviour Jesus Christ grant him many years, in safety and peace."
