In this video, Fr. Athanasios of Simonopetra [Mount Athos] talks about the life and repose of Elder Gelasius, a monk of Mount Athos who used to have a dialogue with God. "''What do you want from me, Your creature?' He [God] said, 'To love Me and to be afraid of Me.' Again, I did not hesitate and asked, 'How to love You and How to be afraid of You?' 'To love Me as your Father and to be afraid of Me as your Creator.'" This is part of a homily of Fr. Athanasios of Simonopetra [Mount Athos] at the Holy Church of St. Athanasios in Mpara, Trikala, Greece (March 27, 2023).
