Litany in Potamos, Corfu
On Sunday afternoon, June,2 2019, the litany of the sacred icon of the Virgin Mary took place with the participation of His Eminence, the Bishop of Corfu, Paxoi and Diapontian Islands, Mr. Nektarios and a crowd and philharmonic band in the village of Potamos.
His Eminence, taking the occasion of the miracle of the Virgin Mary, who relieved Corfu from the drought at the end of the 15th century, noted that She always listens to the prayers, who by faith resort to Her. Our Lady is the mediator to the charitable God. Particularly today, when we go through this crisis of morals and values, having been tempted by the promises of strangers for easy enrichment and material prosperity while leaving Christ at the same time, we are now experiencing the moral erosion of our homeland.
It is not a coincidence, that this Litany takes place in this very happy period of Christ’s Resurrection, continued the Bishop of Corfu. Christ have to us eternal life and through His Mother’s embassies, gave life to Corfiot people.
In conclusion, Mr. Nektarios stressed that we owe, armed with faith to the Risen from the Dead Lord and united in the face of Our Lady, to resist and preserve as we preserve our eyes the values and ideals that our fathers have bequeathed and kept our Nation alive through of the centuries.
