Archbishop presiding over Mass in October: Without Christ, we do not bear fruit in the ministry


Dr. Samy Fawzy, Archbishop of the Episcopal/Anglican Province of Alexandria, presided over the Divine Liturgy at the Savior Episcopal/Anglican Church in 6th of October City.

He cited, the Gospel of John: (1 I am the vine and the real dad honored. 2 Each branch in does not bear fruit He takes away, and all bear fruit to come forth more fruit.) Explains, without contacting the real vine which Christ does not appreciate to serve and bear fruit in the world where God used the analogy of the vine and the branches

And the bishop added: Christ says without me, you cannot do anything to make him known as the true vine, and no one comes to the Father without him.

The bishop asked: Can we serve without Christ? If we serve without him, the spiritual influence will be very weak, but we must have obedience and submission to him in order to be a real service, adding: As Christ was wandering doing good, God wants us to do good and bear fruit in our service.

The bishop continued: Just as there is hope in Christ, there is also a fear of being separated from Him and, therefore, of being separated from the vine. It is possible for us to serve a lot without Christ, but without real fruit.

The bishop concluded: We must ensure our good connection with God through the life of holiness that we live, and nurture the fruits of our Holy Spirit, which are love, joy, peace, and long-suffering.
