His Grace Varlaam of Ploieşti, Assistant Bishop to the Patriarch, celebrated the Divine Liturgy.
In his homily, His Grace Bishop Varlaam presented Saint Nectarios as an example of spiritual father and shepherd.
As a spiritual father and shepherd, he took care of all the faithful who came to him. The believers present before him their joy, trouble, doubt, and sadness. Saint Nectarios pastored all these with an exquisite love.
