On Sunday, July 24, 2022, the day of commemoration of Saint Athenagoras the Apologist, Metropolitan Athenagoras of Belgium presided over the Divine Liturgy in the Metropolitan Church of Brussels.
In his sermon, the Metropolitan referred to the Gospel passage of the day and in particular to its social dimension.
At the end of the Divine Liturgy, after referring to the fact of mourning due to the passing away of his mother and therefore the simple celebration of his name day just by celebrating the Divine Liturgy, he thanked the clergy and the faithful who came to honor the memory of Saint Athenagoras the Apologist, wishing that the saint’s blessings would bless everyone.
This was followed by a small treat at the Parish Hall of the Metropolitan Church.
The holy clergy and the pious people wished Metropolitan Athenagoras all the best with the power of God and health for the good of the local Church in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.
