The Samaritan Woman and the End of the World

Tomorrow is the fifth Sunday of Pascha, the Sunday of the Samaritan Woman. In a homily given by Fr. Andrew Phillips (here) he makes an interesting point especially in light of the recent end-of-the-world scare. (See link above for full homily):

“And this is why this world still continues today, why the world has not yet ended. Until the Gospel of Christ has been preached in spirit and in truth, that is, in Orthodox manner, in all lands, throughout the world, the world cannot end. For as long as there are new Samaritans, new peoples, new tribes to hear the Truth, as long as there are people who can still potentially become Orthodox, the world must continue, for there is harvest still to be reaped.”
