Today by the Grace of God, Dn. Nikiphoros became Fr. Nikiphoros at St. Kyriaki Orthodox Church Chepkiwis- Eldoret Diocese. AXIOS FATHER!
"A priest, is the Elijah of the New Covenant, calling down not fire from Heaven, but calling down the Holy Spirit that by the grace of the sacrament the souls of the faithful may be enlightened. To despise the priestly office is to be “stark mad and senseless,” for only one who did not understand the divine work the priest does in his role in the Eucharistic sacrifice would have no regard for the office of priest."
(St. John Chrysostom).
