Anonymity - Serving Without Christ

As I made my way out of the Archdiocese office in Perth at around 2.00pm on a Friday afternoon some years ago and I stepped on to the front verandah and as I looked up I saw a car speeding along the road, veering off sharply onto the opposite side facing oncoming traffic. It all happened in just an instant, I heard screeching tyres, a thud and saw a man being hurled high into the air like some kind of rubber doll. The force of the impact threw him at least three to four metres high before hitting the back of the vehicle fracturing the rear glass window and landing on to the bitumen. His bicycle was left some 50 meters behind.

My immediate response was "My God, My God". Without even time to think I ran inside the office and immediately telephoned the ambulance. For some strange reason the office phones started to ring continuously without pause as if sounding an alarm. I then rushed out to see what condition the man was in. Given the force of the impact I was convinced that he was dead. As I approached the scene of the accident I saw that the man was in his early thirties. Thankfully he was breathing, in pain but lying quietly on the bitumen. The ambulance took just a few minutes to arrive. A crowd began to gather. I realised there was not much that I could do other than to say a brief prayer as the ambulance officers carefully placed him on to the stretcher. As I made moves to depart from the scene I noticed a woman identify herself to the ambulance officers as the driver of the vehicle that ran into the cyclist.

Then something strange and unexpected happened to me which I had never experienced before. I now realise that I was going through some kind of after shock. I was becoming increasingly teary and having difficulty concentrating. Evidence of the shock was apparent to me later when I got into my car to travel along a familiar route and back again to the office. In the space of just 20 minutes I took three wrong turns including driving past the office on my return. The teary symptoms continued all day and night recovering somewhat the following day, though still feeling emotionally vulnerable.
A few days later I rang the local hospital to find out how the accident victim was coming along. Without a name, the hospital was not prepared to divulge any information. The hospital’s telephonist explained that a similar request was received the previous day from a woman who witnessed a motor cyclist who was injured in a collision with a car. She was not keen to engage in any discussion about the issue and I could sense her frustration in having to deal with my call. Before hanging up I suggested to her and the Chief Executive Officer’s secretary that one method by which people like myself could establish contact with victims was to pass the information on to the individual or the next of kin in order to offer them the opportunity to make contact at a later time if they so wished.

In case you haven't already had a look, the September edition of the "Vema" Newspaper is out and can be downloaded from here (the Greek version is also available from here).

Some of the stories that you can read about are:

  • VOTE 'NO' In the postal plebiscite, to protect marriage, family and the future of our children, by Archbishop Stylianos of Australia

  • St John's Annual Pilgrimage to Perth

 

Greek Orthodox Faithful Flock to Prayer Service for the National Postal Vote

In times of crisis and trial, prayer and fasting are most important. We pray to God for His help and His deliverance, and we pray to the most holy Lady Theotokos and the Saints for their intercessions.

The latest trial is that of the legalisation of same-sex marriage. With the numerous threats this has had on us as Orthodox Christians and the Truth, not to mention the impact it will have on families, children, and society as we know it, prayer is most important.

Last week, at the request and blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, a special service was held in Sydney to pray for the national postal vote. A beautiful icon of the Virgin Mary, dedicated with the new name "Bride of God and Protectress of Marriage" was painted for the historic occasion.

In his recent Encyclical on marriage, His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos writes, "It …constitutes a sacred and inviolable obligation for all of us, excluding no one, to record 'NO' on the relative Postal Survey Form, and to express “with one mouth and one heart” our absolute objection to such an unholy Legislation, which would put at risk the interests of the Family and Marriage for the whole of society..."
