The certainty that it is a great blasphemy to fear the Holy Communion, which is the holy sacrament of Life, was expressed by Bishop Eirinaios of Eumenia.
From the sanctuary of Saint Nectarios in Edessa, where he officiated and preached the divine Word, he referred to the issue of the Holy Communion. He underlined that “In the past, the believers in every great temptation and epidemic ran to their only refuge, the Church, the holy relics and the holy Icons.
He added: “Today one sees the opposite happening, because is being made an attempt to terrorize the people. But the true Christian is not afraid of anything, because he always has Jesus Christ with him, the Victor of death and the devil, whom he receives with the Holy Communion”.
