Griechenland: Daily prayers for Ukraine in Greek churches
According to the OCU, Archbishop Hieronymos of Athens condemned Russian aggression and expressed sympathy and support for the Orthodox Church of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. He noted that daily prayers for peace in Ukraine are heard in churches, while the Church and the state assist refugees from Ukraine and collect humanitarian aid for the needs of our country. Metropolitan Epifaniy expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Church of Greece, the government and the people for their support, their prayer and their aid during the terrible trials of the war that Russia wages against us.
The OCU also reports that Metropolitan Epifaniy had several phone conversations with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, His Divine Beatitude the Pope and Patriarch Theodore of Alexandria and Africa, several Orthodox Church hierarchs abroad and with Pope Francis' personal representative. Several religious leaders have recently sent letters of support to the head of the OCU condemning Russia's aggression against Ukraine. (Quelle: www.risu.ua, 11. März 2022)
