God the Creator-The truth is that God created the universe by the action of his free will. He chose to do so, not forced by anyone. Creation, then, is the product of the divine will and divine choice, in addition to what Saint John of Damascus calls the eternal and unchanging counsel of God. “Let us create man in our image and in our likeness.” The communion of the Holy Trinity is established in the bond of love that flows between them as an inexhaustible source, and for the sake of love, God willed (by His will) to expand this circle and pour it out on His beings and creatures, so He created them, and when they fell, He pulled them out for the sake of love, for creation and crucifixion were both acts of practical love.
Upcoming Services & Events
St. Photini lived in first century Palestine. She was the Samaritan woman who Christ visited at the well asking her for water. It was she who accepted the “living water” offered her by Christ Himself after repenting from her many sins (John. 4:5-42). She went and told her townspeople that she had met the Christ. For this, she is sometimes recognized as the first to proclaim the Gospel of Christ. She converted her five sisters (Sts. Anatole, Photo, Photis, Paraskeve, and Kyriake) and her two sons (Victor and Joses). They all became tireless evangelists for Christ.
