“Hope is taking root in the unique call…
of man, love,” highlights in the christmas message of the Archbishop of Athens and all Greece Ieronimos. In his message, the Archbishop speaks for the
refugees, recalling that the first big Î¾ÎµÎ½Î¹Ï„ÎµÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¿Ï‚ of the story is Jesus himself.
“He abandoned them Î Î±Ï„ÏÎ¹ÎºÎ¿ÏÏ‚ bays and took over the human tragedy to the death. And as a man, but he was forced to take the road of exile, marching deliberately in his crucified way of love,” says the message of the Archbishop Hieronymus, and completes the message by saying: “This Christmas let us celebrate the foreign lands from the contracts and the ÎºÎ±Ï„Î±ÏƒÏ†Î¬Î»Î¹ÏƒÎ· that stifle freedom. Let’s ÎµÏ€Î±Î½Î±Ï€Î±Ï„ÏÎ¹ÏƒÏ„Î¿ÏÎ¼Îµ in the face and the heart of the Î±Î½Î±Î³ÎºÎµÎ¼ÎÎ½Î¿Ï… a fellow human being.
