Beginning of The Worshipping Events for the memory of Saint Spyridon in Corfu
On the morning of Tuesday, December 11, 2018, the three-day worshipping events for the Protector of the island of Corfu, Saint Spyridon, Bishop of Trimythus the Wonderworker began with the Holy Apostle and the placement of the Relic of the Saint at the door for a three-day pilgrimage of the faithful.
His Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands Mr. Nektarios, talked to the faithful, who briefly emphasized that the hearts of the faithful are filled when they gaze at the Holy and Miraculous Spyridon at the door, especially these three days when our Holy Church honors his memory. The whole island rejoices along with all of Christianity.
Particularly in these times we live, in the difficult for our Church, we beg and pray to our saint, as he repeated again and often, to soften the harsh hearts of those people who either ignorantly or deliberately fight their Lord. Let St. Spyridon give the mind of Christ to all of them so that they can understand it well that our Greece without Christ does not exist.
Finally, Mr. Nektarios welcomed the many pilgrims who swarmed the Holy Pilgrimage and wished to all believers St. Spyridon to give his grace to everyone and to illuminate the démarches of their life.
