Dogmatic and moral teachings in the pastoral letters on Christmas and Easter of Metropolitan Nicolae Colan of Transylvania (1957-1967)
In the present study, the author highlights several themes of our Orthodox faith, such as Jesus Christ, God and Man; Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God; living in Christ and with Christ; promot- ing peace among men; love of God and neighbor and Christian family - issues based on numerous biblical texts and dressed in a beautiful literary language of the mid twentieth century.All these dogmatic and moral teachings focused on making the Foundations of the Orthodox faith known, especially by our faithful, but also its practical implementation through our everyday deeds (and actions).
