Probably we are speaking of the faith we read about in the Holy Scriptures and in the Lives of the Saints; the faith which healed, worked miracles, gave unshakeable courage to the martyrs, fed the desert dwellers, and carried humble ascetics into the heavenly realms. It is that great faith which is so mysterious and unfathomable to us; faith that, we must admit, disturbs us when we read Christ’s words in the Gospels, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out the demons!

Why on earth is he meeting with the leader of a non country whose government was responsible for the persecution of the wonderful Serbian Archbishop Jovan? Where to next, Ukraine to meet with Porky Poroshenko, and Filaret?
