The definition of synergy is “The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.”
In the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church, synergy is the concept that salvation is a result of cooperation between the believer and God. Although salvation is a free gift from God, the believer must respond by Faith (Acts 16:31) (John 6:47), reception of the Sacraments (Mark 16:16, John 6:49-59) (Leviticus 19: 20-22) (Matthew 3:16) (Mark 1:5) (John 20:21-22) , virtuous living (Mark 10: 17 – 27) , prayer (Acts 2:21) (Romans 10:13), fasting (Mark 9:29, Matthew 6:16-18) and other ascetical exercises that lead to spiritual growth (Matthew) (Matthew 25:35) (Luke 12:33) (Matthew 5:42) (Matthew 6:1-4)
One of the many paths to salvation is to openly proclaim the Gospel of Christ and to teach all nations the true faith. (Acts 13:47) (Mark 16:15) (Acts 20:24) (Romans 1:16)
Since the Catholic Church is the One True Church of Christ ( 1 Tim 3:15) and many are mislead by heterodox Christian faiths and false religions, our mission is to be a witness to the Gospel and to be witnesses to the Ressurected Incarnate Lord and the true faith. (Titus 2:1)
As we have made the definition of Synergy clear, we intend to help lead others on the path to salvation as a result of responding to the Will of God and make known the truths of the Holy Catholic faith and the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church. As we also work on our salvation and pray that our work benefits others, we ask for the intercession of The Most Holy Theotokos, the Holy Apostles, Saint John Chrysostom, and all the Holy Saints, that our work may be acknowledge by God for His Eternal Glory.
Blessed is the Kingdom of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit: Now and Forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.
