  • [01] Archbishop's Sermon-Response Will not Give Up the Fight

    27 Feb 2005 11:59:00

    By Viki Keleri

    Today, Archbishop Christodoulos responded to his critics concerning the development of the last few days with an explosive sermon from the pulpit of the Church of Agioi Pantes in Kallithea. The Primus of the Church of Greece declared once again that he would not be resigning. "If those who fight us think that I will resign, or I will stop talking, then they have their heads in the clouds," he clearly stated. Appearing quite emotional and amid the cheers of his congregation, he added, "I will continue fighting for my faith for as long as I am still stranding." Mr Christodoulos also spoke of saboteurs who are targeting the Church, while he underlined that the mischief-makers come and go. Finally, he called on everyone not to abandon their faith or the Church.

    Attack Against the Media

    The Archbishop claimed that the scandals are necessary in order to test the people, however, they should not stop respecting the Church. "We did not become priests to grow rich. I have no money," he noted.

    Meanwhile, he harshly criticized the Media saying that the case is being publicized for over a month, "as if the crimes they are showing are unprecedented."

    Finally, he accused the Media for their inclination to disarm the souls of the people, while he invited the congregation to reject the threats of the propaganda by showing faith in the Church.

    The death toll from the severe avalanches has exceeded 250. As per the latest count made public by the authorities, 252 people lost their lives last weekend (19 and 20 February), from the avalanches prompted by the heavy snowfalls. At the same time, more than 400 people have been left homeless and are seeking refuge in schools. The Indian army described the catastrophe as an unprecedented crisis and called on all citizens to abandon their homes, since there are fears that the rise in temperature will cause new avalanches.

    [03] AEK at the Top and Waiting

    26 Feb 2005 21:28:00

    By Vasilis Kalpinos

    Two goals scored in the fist ten minutes of the match were enough for AEK to score a great win against Kalithea. Although the home team managed to close the gap in the second half, they could not do any more damage. For AEK, the goals were scored by Cesar in the 2 and Ivic in the 8, while Kyriakos was Kallitheas scorer in the 67.

    Goals Before Warm-Up

    AEK set the foundations towards defeating Kallithea right from the start. Cesar was by himself in front of Bartzokas, took advantage of the situation and scored a goal in the 2. And although the first goal set the foundations, the second, six minutes later by Vladan Ivic, literally sealed the match.

    From then on, the pace slowed down a bit, since AEK had dominated in the pitch, although it occasionally did miss some excellent opportunities to score. In the 29, Vokolos clearly jostled Lymberopoulose inside the penalty areas, however the referee only awarded a foul. Katsouranis kicked the ball from a good position, but it went wide. So, the score remained at 0-2 until the end of the first half.

    Victory Despite the Goal

    The visitors seemed more relaxed in the beginning of the second half. On the other hand, Kallithea tried to play more offensively, especially since Alexis Alexandris came in as a substitute.

    However, it was Santos team that missed yet another opportunity, when in the 57, Lymberopoulos header went wide. And although everything seemed calm, in the 67, Kallithea got back into the game. Kyriakos strong kick from outside the penalty area deflected off someone and ended in the nets, with Chiotis unable to react. So, the pace of the game changed once again, with Lemonis team trying as best as it could to tie the score.

    The home team wanted to show a more aggressive face after the goal, but was not successful. On the other hand, AEK missed another opportunity, when Bartzokas saved Katsouranis kick.

    So, as AEK did not lose the lead at any point, it took a valuable win and shot to the top of the rankings.
