THE METROPOLITAN ANTHONY PACKANICH: THE WAR CONTINUES MERCILESSLY TO REAP ITS HARVEST

War is never fast. After it, the hunger for revenge of the losing side lasts for years and spreads among the people on a genetic level.

War is never fast. After it, the hunger for revenge of the losing side lasts for years and spreads among the people on a genetic level.

War always results in an exhaustion and depletion of economy, ideology, in the loss of territory, and above all — in the loss of human lives and fates.

We need to be extremely careful in our thoughts and words. The history of beginning of a flare-up of any conflict and its going from cold phase to heated phase often reveals that both sides didn’t consider the possibility of the conflict. It seems that one thing was planned, but something went wrong. War is not a «playstation».

Anyway, the human is highly vulnerable, and war gives the green light for revealing manifestations and emotions often savage, anti-human, in the christian view. The hatred of enemy, mercilessness, guile, cunning, lie, hunger for revenge are the necessary qualities and characteristics of war.

One of the Beatitudes says: «Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.» (Matthew 5:9). We must bear it in our memory and consciousness. Acting like a peacemaker in any conflict will decrease the general intensity of hatred.

The humanity is a living organism. If it hurts in one place, in another it gives away. If people die somewhere, this pain feels in all parts of the big organism called humanity. Whether we want it or not, this is the law.

Any conflict should be de-escalated, first of all, within yourself to contain the blaze of anger and hate of all detonators which are able to make the process uncontrolled, which are able to activate the «infernal machine» with unpredictable consequences.

The further the generation who survived war is, the frivolous we are who didn’t live through war.

And it’s enough for people of my generation to remember the tales from grandfathers and grandmothers about that nothing matters more than peaceful skies above us.

Unfortunately, shots are fired and people die on our land today. The war continues mercilessly to reap its harvest. Brother’s blood exclaims to the Sky again and again…

Let’s cherish and guard the peace, first of all, within ourselves. Let’s vigilantly and alertly keep watching and warding the blue sky of our souls to not let clouds of anger outshine our common sky.
