His Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Onufry
Division among people lead to tragedies, reminded his Beatitude Metropolitan Onufry.
The division that now exists in the world, were the result of destructive influence of sin. This was told by his Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Onufry in his sermon on the day of memory of the Holy glorious prophet Elijah, according to Information-enlightenment Department of the UOC.
“Sin separates people, makes a person corrupt, – said the Primate. – We have a problem: we want something, think about the second and third do. The Lord wants us to be chaste, that is, to love God, to have a desire to become better, brighter, kinder and to love each other. But the world went the other way.”
According to his Beatitude Onufry, the world started listening to sin, to sin – and sin has divided us and this has always led to tragedies.
The Primate noted that a person living according to the faith, has a peaceful spirit.
“As a consequence the true faith of man on earth lives peacefully, quietly, full of goodness, light, on him rests the blessing of God – that is, he is happy. When a person loses faith, loses the happiness that he is everywhere and always looking for”, – said his Beatitude Onufry.
“May the Lord help us, dear brothers and sisters, to protect the purity of the Holy faith. We don’t have the faith to fit their infirmities, warned the Metropolitan Onufry – otherwise we will lose our standard of spiritual health and the opportunity to be heirs of eternal salvation.”
Earlier, the Primate said that the eradication of hatred within himself makes us worthy heirs of the Baptist of Russia Vladimir.
