Faith cures Russian society's error, Orthodox patriarch says in Christmas message

Catholic World News - January 11, 2010

In his Christmas message to the Orthodox world, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow encouraged the faithful to let the light of the Incarnate Christ illumine the world, exposing the truth about the meaning of human life.

“If at the foundation of our lives there is untruth, error, then our lives are not realized,” the Russian Orthodox patriarch said in his message, which was released for the Orthodox celebration of the Nativity on January 7. He took note of an unhealthy “substitution of true values by false values,” saying that a disregard for spiritual truth is the root cause of contemporary problems in “the economy, politics, the environment, family life, the generation gap, and many other things.”
