We learn that the God of the Exodus and the Covenant sets his people free 'because they are his sons and daughters', created not for slavery but for 'the glorious liberty of the children of God' [ Rom 8, 21]. So when Saint Paul writes that we 'have died to the law through the body of Christ' [ Rom 7, 4], he does not mean that the Law of Sinai is past. He means that 'the Ten Commandments now make themselves heard through the voice of the Beloved Son'. The person delivered by Jesus Christ into true freedom is aware of being bound 'not externally' by a multitude of prescriptions, 'but internally' by the love which has taken hold in the deepest recesses of his heart.
The Ten Commandments are the law of freedom: not the freedom to follow our blind passions, 'but the freedom to love, to choose what is good in every situation', even when to do so is a burden.

It is not an impersonal law that we obey; what is required is loving surrender to the Father through Christ Jesus in the Holy Spirit [cfr. Rom 6, 14; Gal 5, 18]. In revealing himself on the Mountain and giving his Law, God revealed man to man himself. In pursuit of this truth, the monks of this monastery pitched their tent in the shadow of Sinai. The Monastery of the Transfiguration and Saint Catherine bears all the marks of time and human turmoil, but it stands indomitable as a witness to divine wisdom and love.
For centuries monks from all Christian traditions lived and prayed together in this monastery, listening to the Word, in whom dwells the fullness of the Father's wisdom and love.
In this very monastery, Saint John Climacus, wrote The Ladder of Divine Ascent, a spiritual masterpiece that continues to inspire monks and nuns, from East and West, generation after generation. All this has taken place under the mighty protection of the Great Mother of God. As early as the third century Egyptian Christians appealed to her with words of trust: we have recourse to your protection, O Holy Mother of God!
Sub tuum praesidium confugimus, sancta Dei Genetrix! Through the centuries, this monastery has been an exceptional meeting place for people belonging to different Churches, traditions and cultures.

I pray that in the new millennium the Monastery of Saint Catherine will be a radiant beacon calling the Churches to know one another better and to rediscover the importance in the eyes of God of the things that unite us in Christ. I am grateful to the many faithful from the Diocese of Ismayliah, led by Bishop Makarios, who have come to join me in this pilgrimage to Mount Sinai. The Successor of Peter thanks you for your steadfastness in faith. God bless you and your families!
I cordially greet His Beatitude Makari, Coptic Orthodox Bishop of All Sinai and, with gratitude for his presence, ask him to take my prayerful good wishes to the faithful of his diocese. In particular I wish to thank Archbishop Damianos for his kind words of welcome, and for the hospitality which he and the monks have given us today.
May the Monastery of Saint Catherine be a spiritual oasis for members of all the Churches in search of the glory of the Lord which settled on Mount Sinai [cfr. Ex 24, 16]!
