Patriarchal Message on the Occasion of the Celebration of the Day of Orthodox Youth on 15th February 2018

Dear brothers and sisters,

I warmly greet you on the Feast of the Meeting of the Lord and the Day of Orthodox Youth.

Today the Church remembers the meeting of the Christ Child and the elder Simeon, who was ‘just and devout’ (Lk 2, 25). For many years the ancient elder had been anxiously waiting for the coming of the Saviour into the world, and God revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that the Child lying in Mary’s arms was indeed the long-awaited Messiah, Who would become for all peoples ‘a light to enlighten the Gentiles’ (Lk. 2, 32).
