In his Enthronement
address on 27th February 2016 at St George's Cathedral in London,
Metropolitan Silouan said,
Be Holy as Christ
Holy in your daily life, witnessing to others Christ’s example of
love, beauty and splendour. Pray unceasingly, observe the fasts, read
the Holy Bible, follow Christ’s teachings and example, keep all the
Holy Sacraments of the Church, building your relationship with Christ
through the Holy Spirit...
Now, at last, I am with you all. I will be
with you in your parishes and homes sharing with you the words of our
Lord and the consolation of our perfect faith...
Christ showed us the
way of obedience and humility through the Great and Life-Giving
Cross. He permits each of us to carry a small cross to lead us to
salvation while He carried the Great Cross for the salvation of all.
I will help you bear your cross and you will help me to bear mine,
until it is time for us to join Him eternally, entering salvation
together. Our lives are now bound to each other for evermore,our
purpose is salvation and our destiny is Christ and only Christ."
