December 24, 2020

ATHENS — The Archbishop of Athens and all Greece Ieronymos on Thursday expressed his gratitude and admiration for the administrative, medical and nursing staff of hospitals throughout the country, together with his best wishes for Christmas, during his online conversation with staff at the hospitals "Evangelismos" and "Sotiria".

"You are teaching what it is to do good more than any of us," the archbishop stressed and offered his best wishes for the holidays "to everyone and each person individually, to the administrative, medical, nursing staff, but also to those who work hard, care and give to those who are in a difficult situation."

In fact, referring to his recent brush with ill health, he noted: "I carry with me an experience, the experience of the epidemic, but the vivid image I retain is of these good people, who took care of me, and I especially wish to point out the nursing staff, whose sacrifice and effort moved me even more."

"May God support you in your work, you and your families. To help you cultivate and advance science and do not forget that science and the Church are today called to a partnership for humanity," he added, because "human life is the greatest value in this world."
