Metropolitan Nicodemus of Memphis spoke about the importance of faith in his sermon, on the feast day of Sts Anargyroi (Unmercenary Physicians Cosmas and Damian).
After the Divine Liturgy, at which he officiated in the church of Sts Anargyroi in Shubra, the historic church that was the cradle of Hellenism in this Cairo neighborhood that was once full of Hellenism, he spoke of the greatness of miracles.
“We are constantly living in a miracle,” Metropolitan Nicodemus of Memphis said, among other things, and added that “Where logic stops, where we come to say that everything is over here that there is nothing else to do for ourselves, there we must open ourselves to the miracle and wait for it. Because the Church lives by the miracle.
What we cannot investigate with our logic and understand, we investigate with our faith and our heart. And what we investigate is called a miracle. And this miracle must prevail in our lives. You see us many times reaching our limits as people, being sick, and the doctors tell us ‘we did what we could.’
Or when we have a problem, and we think about it we see that we have found all the solutions we could but the problem remains unsolved. Is there a way out of this situation? Of course, there is a way out. This way out is the miracle that exists within the Church. That is why today, on the feast of the eminent healers and miraculous Saints Anargyroi, we should invoke them.”
