Archbishop Makarios of Australia’s Tribute for Anzac Day

SYDNEY – Archbishop Makarios of Australia paid tribute to the memories of the men and women who died in the service of Australia and New Zealand in all wars and conflicts. The commemoration was originally established to honor those who died on one of the most critical fronts of World War I. The full text follows:

“Today we respectfully honour the thousands of men and women who gave their lives for Australia. We remember their sacrifice with gratitude and are inspired by their virtue and the principles for which they fought.

At the same time, we cannot forget the strong bonds of friendship that were forged between the Greek and Australian people; bonds that remain strong to today.

This year’s anniversary coincides with a different but, nonetheless, serious trial facing Australian society – the corona pandemic. In this difficult concurrence, we are inspired by our historical memory and encouraged to struggle together in a spirit of solidarity so that we all come out of this stronger and hold onto the hope that next year we will again proudly celebrate Anzac Day and be able to repeat the same phrase: ‘Lest we forget’”
