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.
