ATHENS — The moments are extremely crucial for Greece as the second wave of the pandemic threatens the health "of many of our fellow human beings," Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos said on Friday to Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA). "Our Church which, from the first moment, was on the front line of the national effort for the protection of the people and followed and is following all the instructions and recommendations of the responsible health authorities of the country, makes a call ahead of the liturgy for national OHI Day on October 28, and within the Archdiocese, for the municipal, regional and other polticial officials to this year participate in a different way" it added.

"To honour the heroic sacrifices of our ancestors without taking part in official ceremonies, giving a good example against the large mass gathering which, according to the scientists, are the main source of the virus' transmission. Αfter all, it is a national holiday and a day of remembrance and responsibility and duty for all of us", Archbishop Ieronymos said.
