“Today is a great day for Orthodoxy and Hellenism. We are here, above all, as pilgrims, but also to ask for the Blessed Virgin’s help in the difficult time our homeland is going through.
Our people have stood tall through even more difficult circumstances they have been called upon to face in the past, thanks to our values and traditions. The supreme value being national unity and national understanding. At this time, all together, forming a national front, we can again bring Greece through this crisis as well.”
