Metropolitan's Message


DSWA/C/13/2015 November 26, 2015

"Urshlem" Diocesan Center- Beasley, Texas


Dearly Beloved,


The days of preparation for the great feast of the Nativity of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ have once again drawn near. For the next 25 days, we are called to observe the Nativity Fast through increased prayer and fasting from worldly pleasures in order to receive the Heavenly King.


Nowadays, we have become immersed in a culture of materialism that is defined by the electronics and technology that surrounds us. We are at a point where we willingly endanger lives each day, both physically and spiritually, without even realizing it. The number of recent accidents and deaths resulting from texting and other activities on our mobile devices while driving grieves us, but there seems to be no concern for change. Those who continually choose to do this have decided that what they are doing is more important than the safety of those around them, and this is a result of spiritual pride. When we disregard the safety and comfort of others, we are in a sense disregarding Christ. Although we try to multi-task and do many things at once, the truth is, it impairs our ability to focus and remain attentive to the primary task, and this type of inattentiveness is a spiritual danger that can also affect other areas of our life.
