Triumph of Orthodoxy
"Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" (Jn.1: 47)
Why is it that during the Great Fast, on the day called the "Sunday of Orthodoxy," it is this particular Gospel which is prescribed to be read? Because the Lord's words to Nathanael reveal the character of the true, or Orthodox, Christian and, in general, the character of the true Church of Christ. "Behold, an Israelite indeed," the Lord said of Nathanael, "in whom is no guile," i.e., behold a man who rightly, directly, firmly thinks, reasons, believes, hopes, speaks and acts, since Nathanael directly, immediately believed in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and never wavered in his faith and hope, never changed his mind concerning His divine Person. Should not the true Christian be like him; should not the divinely instituted society of Orthodox Christians also be such; should not the Orthodox Church be such, and is it not such?
