Encyclical of Archbishop Demetrios for the Feast of the Three Hierarchs and Greek Letters Day - January 30, 2014
The teaching and witness of the Three Hierarchs presents to us an authentic synergy between person and community. Each of us is called individually through the Gospel to meet the Risen Christ, to believe in Him and receive the forgiveness and grace of God. We are offered the opportunity to be renewed through communion with Him, to live daily according to His will, to strive toward our created potential as human beings, and to receive the gift of eternal life. We are also called to live, worship, and serve in community. We gather together to worship the One who gives us life and purpose. Through our worship, the Holy Sacraments, and through the preaching and teaching ministries of the Church we receive strength and guidance in the life of faith. As the family of God, brothers and sisters in Christ, we join together in service to one another and to any in need.

Thus, at the beginning of this new year and the beginning of each and every day, our hope must rest securely in Christ. We might anticipate what may come in the months ahead, but our anticipation should come from a foundation of hope in the will and power of God. This is a hope that cannot be quenched or extinguished. It is a hope that can withstand any struggle or challenge that may come. It is a hope that can carry our souls to great spiritual heights when the wondrous and marvelous work of God is revealed.
