Christmas Day messages; Greece’s municipalities support homeless and needy

The birth of Christ was celebrated by Christianity on Monday throughout the world with devoutness.

In their Christmas Day messages, the heads of church referred to the meaning of the days. Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos in his Christmas Day message noted that “we must begin from today a new life worthy of the call of Christ.”

Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos stressed that “Christmas is an opportunity for our spiritual growth, for the cohesion of the family and the interception of the new order of sovereignty which changes the stable values of our culture.” 

Meanwhile, the Athens Municipality, as well as other Municipalities of the country, offered “luncheons of love” to the homeless and the needy.

The Greek Red Cross did likewise. They distributed food from the foundation’s installations at 3rd September Street in Athens.
