Help from above

From the actual commencement of the works we had all realised that in addition to our human power as well as to any machines used for the building of our new Church there was another power, much greater and higher than any human work force.

To be more specific we have realised that the weather conditions this period are much more mild than in the same period of the previous years.

This may be a coincidence. It may also be a little miracle, in support to our sacred project.

In any case we all feel that there is some kind of a supernatural energy that pushes the work forward.

In our Holy Tradition this is called “The Holy Spirit” .

A special prayer which is dedicated to the Spirit of God is as follows: “Heavenly King, Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, who are present everywhere, filling all things, Treasury of good things and Giver of Life, come and dwell among us, cleanse us of every sin and save our souls Gracious Lord” .

Let this be the prayer of both our engineers and workmen, who are so much devoted to this project and they obviously need, apart from their own body power, guidance, inspiration and heavenly power in order to complete successfully the erection of our new Holy Place of Worship.
