    [03] Sunday of Orthodoxy celebrated

    'Sunday of Orthodoxy' was celebrated all over Greece on Sunday. Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos officiated the doxology at the Athens Saint Dionysius church in the presence of President of Republic Karolos Papoulias.

    Afterwards President Karolos Papoulias hosted a traditional official luncheon at the presidential mansion.

    The 'Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy' is celebrated on the first Sunday of Lent. It is the celebration of the victory over the iconoclasts in 843, in Byzantium, by the decision of the Seventh Ecumenical Council. The service is to commemorate the restoration of icons for use in services and private devotional life of Christians.
