“Our people honor the Virgin Mary today. The mother does not leave anyone in difficult times. The refuge of the weak, the persecuted, the desperate “, says Alexis Tsipras in a post on Facebook.
“Support and shelter in these days of the fire, for believers and non-believers, who feel helpless by those who should help them,” he notes.
The president of SYRIZA expresses “wishes for strength and courage to all, and especially to those who are being tested on this hard August 15th”, while accompanying his post with a photo of Panagia Katafygiotissa by Dimitris Mytaras.
