...of the Greek Variety

Saint Maximus the Confessor:

'You must love everyone with all your soul, hoping however only in God and honouring Him with all your heart. Christ's friends are not loved by all, but they sincerely love all. The friends of this world are not loved by all, but neither do they love all'.

Comment: In Christ, the light of the nations, we come to the truth of the human person. In this concrete example on the Cross, His Supreme Immolation, we find the nature of charity. If we wish to call ourselves Christians, we must walk in His steps, suffering for the hope we have, but praying all the time for sinners.
