ΟΜΙΛΙΑ ΣΕΒ. ΑΡΧΙΕΠΙΣΚΟΠΟΥ ΑΜΕΡΙΚΗΣ κ. ΕΛΠΙΔΟΦΟΡΟΥ ΚΑΤΑ ΤΗΝ ΕΘΝΙΚΗ ΗΜΕΡΑ ΠΕΝΘΟΥΣ ΓΙΑ ΤΗΝ ΑΓΙΑ ΣΟΦΙΑ

ΟΜΙΛΙΑ ΣΕΒ. ΑΡΧΙΕΠΙΣΚΟΠΟΥ ΑΜΕΡΙΚΗΣ κ. ΕΛΠΙΔΟΦΟΡΟΥ ΚΑΤΑ ΤΗΝ ΕΘΝΙΚΗ ΗΜΕΡΑ ΠΕΝΘΟΥΣ ΓΙΑ ΤΗΝ ΑΓΙΑ ΣΟΦΙΑ

Η σημερινή μέρα είναι μια μέρα, κατά την οποία ο πόνος και η θλίψη συνδυάζονται με την πίστη και την ελπίδα. Αυτή είναι η μέρα, κατά την οποία οι ύμνοι μας προς τη Θεοτόκο Παρθένο αποκτούν έναν επείγοντα χαρακτήρα, καθώς παραβιάζεται η ίδια η θρησκευτική μας ταυτότητα. Αυτή είναι η δική μας Εθνική Ημέρα Πένθους για την κατάσχεση της Αγίας Σοφίας μας και του ιερού περιβόλου της. Όσοι επιζητούν να μειώσουν τη Μεγάλη Εκκλησία από μία έκφραση υψηλότατης αισθητικής και πνευματικής ανάτασης σε ένα σύμβολο φυλετικής αλαζονείας, δεν θα επιτύχουν, εν τέλει, τίποτα. Read More
