Anyone connected with the Greek Orthodox Church must surely feel very, very deeply for the Greek people, in a crisis that is being exploited by EU politicians for their own ends (see Jeremy Warner and Norman Tebbit).
“The unfortunate Greeks have been given all possible forms of assistance except actual help”, says Lord Tebbit.
NOW to God’s Mother
let us humble sinners run in haste
and in repentance
let us fall down before her feet,
crying aloud with fervour
from the depths of our souls,
‘Sovereign Lady, help us now,
have compassion upon us,
hasten, for we perish
from our many offences.
Let not your servants go empty away;
we have you as our only hope’.
