An excerpt from the post An Eternal Perspective On Circulating “Prophecies”
Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol, commenting:
“What will we succeed if we take Constantinople and lose our souls? Of course it would be a joy for this to happen. Of course we will rejoice in that moment. But our concern and goal should be the conquest of the Jerusalem Above. The Gospel also says this: “Seek that which is Above.”
. . .
Good to remember whether “our side” (whichever that may be) succeed – or fails – in any given election, policy proposal or endeavor.
