THE SECOND SUNDAY OF THE LENT - WEEK OF SAINT GREGORY PALAMAS

In the second week of Lent we commemorate St Gregory Palamas, Archbishop of Thessalonica. In the second week of the Great Lent the Holy Church tells us about the mystery of the light, to which we must commune if we want to see the Resurrection of Christ. St. Gregory of Thessalonica and theological controversies in the fourteenth century associated with his name taught that the light of the Transfiguration is a light uncreated. Disproving the heresy of Western theologians, this teaching was reminiscent of the word of Scripture that God is light, and, confessing God the Father and God the Son, Light from Light, true God from true God, we believe that God the Light created another, created light , the one mentioned in the book of Genesis: "And God said, let there be light."
