ПРОЛЕЋЕ И ПАСХУ НИШТА НЕ МОЖЕ УКИНУТИ - Васкршња порука Епископа Лосанђелеског Максима (II део)

Хришћани су већ доживели искуство љубави и милосрђа Божијег и знају да их Он неће оставити ”сиротима”. Као што пролеће опојно делује на све, тако за све хришћане Пасха делује опојно и радосно. И као што ће овогодишње Пролеће за највећи број људи бити недоступан плод, тако ће и Васкрс као литургијски догађај бити многима недоступан. Али, да ли можемо да кажемо да свет не опитује пролеће? Не! Да ли можемо да кажемо да хришћани не опитују Пасху? Никако! Дакле, иако не можемо да се радујемо пролећу у природи, тако не можемо Пасху да славимо у њеном природном окружењу, а то је храм. Али, и Пролеће је ту и Пасха је ту.

The Hagia Sophia

The Mystical Light of the Great Church and its Architectural Dress

by Charalambos P. Stathakis

Dear reader, as you run like the rest of us along the dizzy main road, stop, stay aside for a while. Let the others be dizzy, and take the secret underground trail, which will lead you through the dewdrops of the leaves, the crystal smile of the sun, the city’s underground galler- ies, your knowledge, and your feelings, to the doorstep of the Hagia Sophia. Because all dew- drops, all sunrays, and all beauty lead there. That is what you will be told by my friend, the author, whom I am fond of and whom I send you to, Charalambos Stathakis: the doctor, the warm and humane researcher, the scientist devoted to his work and his patients, who has given a series of scientific papers, who, nevertheless, retains a nest of beauty untouched in his heart, which makes him outstanding—even though he is not a specialist in architecture, nor a historian, nor a theologian, nor a Byzantinist—it makes him stand out in all these together and in entirety.
