MEMORIAL SERVICE HELD FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE 911 ATTACKS AT WTC

His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios celebrated a Memorial Service World Trade Center site September 11. With Him were His Grace Bishop Savvas, Fr. John Romas, pastor of St Nicholas Church, the only house of worship destroyed on 911, five priests of the Greek Archdiocese, Fr. Christopher Calin, representing the His Grace Bishop Michael of New York and the Orthodox Church in America and about 50 lay people, some who lost family members in the attacks 9 years ago.. Members of the Police and Fire Departments, as well as representatives from the embassies of Greece and Cyprus were in attendance. In his comments after the Memorial Service, His Eminence emphasized that this is a day on which we remember the innocent victims who died, and that we should not allow the significance of the day to be overshadowed by any other issues or interests. He read from the Wisdom of Solomon, 3: 1-7: But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.
2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery,
3 And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace.
4 For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.
5 And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself.
6 As gold in the furnace hath he tried them, and received them as a burnt offering.
7 And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble. See our Gallery section for pictures.
