Ο ΒΑΡΘΟΛΟΜΑΙΟΣ ΣΤΟ ΝΗΣΙ ΜΑΣ ΤΗΝ ΗΜΕΡΑ του Αγίου Δημητρίου

BARTHOLOMEOS ON OUR ISLAND FOR THE ST DEMETRIOUS DAY

Fener Rum Patriği BARHOLOMEOS 24 Ekim Cumartesi günü beraberinde Silivri Metropoliti Maksimos VGENOPOULOS ve Alaşehir Metropoliti Μeliton KARRAS ile birlikte adamıza geldi. Hıristiyan vatandaşlar kendilerini limanda çiçeklerle karşıladı.

Στην Ιμβρο έφτασε ο Οικουμενικός Πατριάρχης Βαρθολομαίος το Σάββατο 24 Οκτωβρίου στο πλαίσιο των εορτασμών του Αγίου Δημητρίου. Μαζί του ήταν οι Μητροπολίτες Σηλυβρίας κ. Μάξιμος Βγενόπουλος και Φιλαδελφείας κ. Μελίτων Καρράς. Μέλη της κοινότητας τους υποδέχτηκαν με λουλούδια στο λιμάνι του Αγίου Κύρηκα.

The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew arrived in our island on Saturday, October 24th, accompanied by the Silivri Metropolitan Maksimos VGENOPOULOS and the Alaşehir Metropolitan Meliton Karras. Members of the community welcomed them at the Kuzulimani Port.

25 Ekim günü Pazar ayininde Hristos YORGİU’nun “Diyakos”luk törenini gerçekleştiren BARTHOLOMEOS yaptığı konuşmada, pandemi nedeniyle sosyal faaliyetlerin yavaşladığına, birçok etkinliğin yapılamadığına dikkat çekerek bu süreçte dikkatli olmakta yarar olduğunu belirtti. Vatandaşı olduğumuz ülkenin kurallarına uyarak, bu ülkede yaşayan her kesimden vatandaşlar ile birlik beraberlik içinde sağlıklı bir yaşam sürmek bizlerin elinde sözleri pandemi konusunda ki hassasiyeti vurgulaması açısından önemliydi.

Kατα τη διάρκεια της χειροτονίας του Χρίστου Γεωργίου σε Διάκονο Χρύσανθο τη Κυριακή 25 Οκτωβρίου, ο Πατριάρχης επεσήμανε ότι οι κοινωνικές δραστηριότητες δε μπόρεσαν να πραγματοποιηθούν λόγω της πανδυμίας και δήλωσε ότι είναι χρήσιμο να είμαστε προσεκτικοί αυτή τη περίοδο. Είναι σημαντικό για εμάς να κανανοήσουμε αυτό το ευαίσθητο σημείο και να ζήσουμε μια υγιή ζωή σε ενότητα με πολίτες από όλα τα κοινωνικά στρώματα σε αυτήν τη χώρα συμμορφώνοντας προς τους κανόνες.

During the ordination of Christos Georgiou to Deacon Chrysanthos Sunday, October 25th, the Patriarch BARTHOLOMEOS, pointed out that the social activities slowed down and others could not be held due to the pandemic, and stated the importance of being careful during that time. He emphasised the sensitivity of the pandemic and the importance too live a healthy life in unity with citizens from all walks of life in this country by complying with the rules given.

BARTHOLOMEOS ve beraberindeki konuklar, 26 Ekim “Aziz DİMİTRİOS” günü nedeniyle adamıza gelmişlerdi. Adamızda “Aziz DİMİTRİOS”un ismini taşıyan manastırlardan birinde gece için ayin planlanmıştı. Adamızda Tepeköy Çınaraltı diye bilinen mevkinin eteklerinde bulunan manastıra bozuk yoluna rağmen (bazı katılımcılar araçla, bazıları yürüyerek) yoğun katılım vardı. Gündüzden kesilen kurban etleri kazanlara konulmuş pişmeye başlamıştı. Önce akşam ayini gerçekleştirildi. Gece ayinine başlamadan önce birlikte yemekler yenilerek şarkılar söylendi. Bazı katılımcıların ayrılmasına rağmen gece ayini de gerçekleştirilerek ritüel tamamlandı.

Η επίσκεψη του Πατριάρχη Βαρθολομαίοου έγινε για τα ονομαστήρια του Αγίου Δημητρίου στις 26 Οκτωβρίου.  Τη παραμονή τελέστηκε Πατριαρχικός Εσπερινός και Ολονυκτία στο ξωκλήσι του Αγίου Δημητρίου στα Αγρίδια οπου προσεφέρθει και η παραδοσιακή Κουρκούτα. Παρά τον δίσβατο δρόμο (πιστοί προσήλθαν με αυτοκίνητο και άλλοι με τα πόδια), η συμμετοχή ήταν έντονη. Το πανηγύρι ξεκίνησε μετά το πέρας του Εσπερινού και πριν ξεκινήσει η Ολονυκτία οπου μουσικοί και τραγούδια συντρόφευσαν το γεύμα των πιστών και επισκεπτών.

The visit of the Patriarch Bartholomew was due to the Saint Dimitrius Day on October 26. Vesper and vigils took place in one of the monasteries named “Saint Dimitrios” at the countryside of Agridia Village (Tepeköy) the night before (October 25th). Despite the  rough path (some participants came by car, some others  on foot), there was intense participation to the monastery. The traditional feast was not missing. During the Vesper, meat that has been blessed and sacrificed earlier this morning was cooked and the traditional Kurkuta (broken wheat porridge cooked in goat broath) was served to believers and visitors, after Vesper and before the Virgil accompanied by music and songs.

“Aziz DİMİTRİOS” için yapılacaklar bitmemişti. 26 Ekim sabahı Zeytinliköy’de bulunan ve “Aziz DİMİTRİOS” ismini taşıyan manastırda yapılan ayine katıldı BARTHOLOMEOS ve beraberindekiler. Ayinin bitiminden sonra BARTHOLOMEOS köylerde yapacağı ziyaretler için manastırdan ayrıldı.

Οι εργασίες του Παναγιώτατου δεν τελείωσαν εδώ, αφού την επόμενη (26 Οκτωβρίου), ανήμερα της γιορτής του Αγίου Δημητρίου παρεβρέθηκε μετα της συνοδίας του στον ΙΝ Αγίου Δημητρίου στην ιδιαίτερη πατρίδα του, τους Αγίους Θεοδώρους. Μετά τη λύση της λειτουργίας ο Πατριάρχης αποχώρησε για την καθιερωένη του επίσκεψη στα χωριά του νησιού.

His All Holiness the Patriarch was present the next morning (October 26th) at the St Dimitrius Pray at St Theodori Village (Zeytinlikoy) where his is originally from. After the end of the Service He left to visit the villages according to His program.

Hıristiyan vatandaşlarımız için önemli bir aziz olan “Aziz DİMİTRİOS” için Gökçeada’nın Sesi olarak biraz araştırma yapınca ortaya çıkanları sizlerle paylaşmanın doğru olacağını düşündük. Aradığımız detaylı bilgiyi “oodegr.com” isimli bir sitede bulduk. “Aziz DİMİTRİOS”un yaşamının özeti diyebileceğimiz bilgiler şu şekilde.

Ως ενημεροτική ιστοσελίδα, πιστεύαμε ότι θα ήταν χρήσιμο να μοιραστούμε μαζί σας λίγα λόγια για το βιο και το έργο του Αγίου Δημητρίου, ένα σημαντικό άγιο για τους χριστιανούς συμπολίτες μας.  **σημειωση της μεταφράστιας: πηγή πληροφοριών για τη τουρκική γλώσσα απετέλεσε η ιστοσελίδα oodegr.com της Ορθόδοξης Ομάδας Δογματικής Έρευνας.

As news portal we believe it  would be right to share with you some things from St Dimitrius life as we found through a little online research. **translator’s note: any information in Turkish was obtained through the oodegr.com website.

“Aziz Dimitrios zengin bir ailenin çocuğu olarak 260 yılında Selanik’te dünyaya geldi. İlk eğitimini ailesinden aldı. Genç yaşa vardığında memleketine asker olarak hizmet etmek istedi. İnançlı, zeki ve cesur bir insan olduğundan da kısa bir sürede komutan makamına ulaştı.

«Ο Άγιος Δημήτριος γεννήθηκε το 260 στη ΡωμαϊκηΘεσσαλονίκη ως παιδί μιας πλούσιας οικογένειας. Έλαβε την πρωτοβάθμια εκπαίδευση από την οικογένειά του. Όταν έφτασε σε νεαρή ηλικία, ήθελε να υπηρετήσει την πατρίδα του ως στρατιώτης. Επειδή ήταν πιστός, έξυπνος και γενναίος άνθρωπος, έφτασε στη θέση του διοικητή σε σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα.

“Saint Dimitrios was born in 260 in  Roman Thessaloniki to a wealthy family. He received his primary education from his family. When he reached a young age, he wanted to serve his hometown as a soldier. Since he was a believer, intelligent and brave person, he reached the position of commander in a short time.

O dönemde Hristiyanların baş düşmanı olan Dioklitianos Roma Kralı idi ve Anadolu sorumlusu ise damadı Maksimianos’tu. Maksimianos azizin özelliklerini gördüğünde Hıristiyan olduğunu bilmeden onu Selanik’e Dük olarak atadı. Aziz bu makama ulaştığında korkusuzca Hıristiyanlığı askerlerine öğretiyor ve onlara putların sahte ve insan işi olduğunu anlatıyordu. Birçok asker azize eğitim almak için gidiyordu. Kısa bir zaman içerisinde birçok kişi putperestlik tuzağından kurtularak Hıristiyan oldu.

Ο Διοκλητιανός, αντίπαλος των Χριστιανών εκείνη την εποχή, ήταν ο Ρωμαίος Αυτοκράτορας και ο Μαξίμιανος ήταν ο υπεύθυνος της Ανατολίας, και γαμπρός του. Όταν ο Μαξιμιανός είδε τα χαρακτηριστικά του Δημητρίου, τον διόρισε ως Δούκα στη Θεσσαλονίκη, μη γνωρίζοντας ότι ήταν Χριστιανός. Όταν έφτασε σε αυτή τη θέση, o Δημήτριος ξεκίνησε τη κατήχηση στους στρατιώτες του εξηγώντας την πλάνη των ειδώλων. Πολλοί στρατιώτες έφτασαν κοντά του και σε σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα, πολλοί άνθρωποι εκχριστιανίστηκαν.

Dioklitianos, who was the basic enemy of the Christians at that time, was the Roman Emperor and the Anatolian chief was his son-in-law Maksimianos. When Maximianos saw the characteristics of Dimitrius, he appointed him as Duke to Thessaloniki, not knowing that he was a Christian. Reaching such a position, He fearlessly taught Christianity to his soldiers and told them that idols were fake. Many soldiers went next to him and many people were Christianized.

Bir gün putperestlerden bir kaçı Maksimianos’a giderek azizin putlara karşı konuştuğunu ve tek ve gerçek Tanrı’nın Mesih İsa olduğu eğitisini yaydığını bildirdiler. Maksimianos bundan emin olmak üzere bütün üst düzey komutanlarını putlara tapınmaları için davet etti. Azizin tapınağa gelmeyi red ettiğini görünce onu yargılamak için karşısına getirmelerini emretti.

–        Dimitrios neden tapιnağa gelmedin? Neden bunu red ettin

 Efendim hiç bir zaman senin emirlerinden dışarı çıkmadım ve hiç bir zaman senin büyüklüğünü küçümsemedim. Ancak Mesih İsa’ya daha sadığım çünkü O benim ve bütün insanlığın kurtarıcısıdır. Ve bu yüzden sizin o sahte tanrılarınıza tapınmayı red ettim.

Μια μέρα, μερικοί από τους ειδωλολάτρες πήγαν στον Μαξιμιανό για να αναφέρουν ότι ο Δημήτριος μίλησε εναντίον των ειδώλων και διέδωσε τη διδασκαλία ότι ο μοναδικός και αληθινός Θεός είναι ο Χριστός Ιησούς. Για να επιβεβαιώσει τη φήμη ο Μαξιμιανός προσκάλεσε όλους τους ανώτερους διοικητές του σε ειδωλολατρική λειτουργία. Βλέποντας ότι ο Δημήτριος αρνήθηκε να έρθει στο ναό, διέταξε να τον φέρουν σε δίκη.

Δημήτριε, γιατί δεν ήρθες στο ναό;

Κύριε, δεν πήγα ποτέ έξω από τις παραγγελίες σας και ποτέ δεν υποτίμησα το μέγεθός σας. Αλλά είμαι πιο πιστός στον Ιησού Χριστό επειδή είναι ο Σωτήρας μου και Σωτήρας όλης της ανθρωπότητας. Και γι’ αυτό αρνήθηκα τα είδωλα.

One day, a few of the pagans went to Maximianus to report that Dimitrius spoke out against idols and spread the teaching that the one and true God is Jesus Christ. Maksimianos invited all his senior commanders to worship at the temple to make sure of this rumor. Seeing that Dimitrius refused to come to the temple, he ordered to bring him to trial.

Dimitrios, why didn’t you come to the temple?

Sir, I never went out of your orders and I never underestimated your size. But I am more faithful to Jesus Christ because He is the savior of me and all humanity. And that is why I refused to worship your gods.

Maksimianos bu sözlere kızarak azizin karanlık bir odaya kapatılmasını emretti. O oda bir hamamın altında bulunduğundan her yerde pis bir koku ve kirli su vardı. Azizi odaya attıkları zaman bir akrep yuvasından çıkarak azize saldırmaya kalkıştı. Aziz haçını yaptıktan sonra üzerine bastı ve akrebi öldürdü. O sırada Tanrı’nın meleği azize görünerek ona altın Taç taktι ve şunları söyledi:

  –Dimitrios cesaretli ol, düşmanlarını yeneceksin.

Bunun üzerine aziz şeytanı yeneceğini anladı. Bu yüzden hapishanede Tanrı’ya şükür ediyor ve sevinç dolu dua ediyordu.

Ο Maximian ήταν θυμωμένος με αυτά τα λόγια και διέταξε να φυλακίσουν τον Δημήτριο σε ένα σκοτεινό κελί. Δεδομένου ότι το κελί βρισκόταν κάτω από ένα λουτρό, υπήρχε παντού μια δυσάρεστη οσμή και βρόμικο νερό. Όταν έριξαν το Δηήτριο στο δωμάτιο, προσπάθησαν να τον τιμωρήσουν αφήνοντας μια φωλιά σκορπιού στο κελί. Αφού ο Δημήτριο έκανε το σταυρό του, το πάτησε και σκότωσε τον σκορπιό. Εκείνη την εποχή Άγγελος Κυρίου εμφανίστηκε στο Δημήτριο του έδωσε ένα χρυσό στέμμα και είπε:

  –Δημήτριε να είσαι γενναίος και θα νικήσεις τους εχθρούς σου.

Στη συνέχεια, ο Δημήτριος συνειδητοποίησε ότι θα νικήσει τον διάβολο. Γι ‘αυτό βρισκόταν στη φυλακή ευχαρίστησε τον Θεό και προσευχόταν με χαρά.

Maximian was angry at these words and ordered the saint to be locked in a dark room. Since that room was located under a bath, there was a uncomfortable odour  and dirty water everywhere. When they threw Dimitrius into the room, the tried to attack him by leaving a scorpion nest. After the saint made his cross sign, he stepped on it and killed the scorpion. At that time the Angel of God appeared to him and gave him a golden Crown saying:

  -Dimitrios be brave, you will defeat your enemies.

Thereupon, the saint realized that he would defeat the devil. That’s why he was in jail thank God and joyfully praying.

Tanrı’nın şehidi Dimitrios hapishanede yaklaşık bir sene kaldı. Bu sűre içerisinde öğrencileri azizin ziyaretine geliyor, o da onları eğitiyordu.

291 yılında Selanik arenasında teke tek dövüşler gerçekleştirildi. Arenada Maksimianos’tan başka Dioklitianos ta bulunmaktaydı. Bu iki efendi ve putperest halk Lieos adındaki savaşçıyı destekliyorlardı. Lieos çok güçlü ve devasa bir insandı. Henüz hiç kimse tarafιndan yenilememiş kendisiyle savaşanların da hayatını bağışlamamıştı. Bu savaşçı stada çıktığı zaman Hıristiyanlara küfür ediyor onları kendisiyle savaşmaları için arenaya davet ediyordu. Azizin öğrencilerinden Nestoras bu sözleri duyduğunda bu devasa adamı öldürmek için öğretmeni olan azize giderek onun kutsamasını istedi. Dimitrios ona:

–        Git sevgili kardeşim. Düşmanını yeneceksin ama Mesih İsa adına da Şehit olacaksın, dedi

Nestoras sevinç içerisinde stada döndü. Bir kılıç alarak savaşmak için arenaya çıktı. Halk genç Hıristiyan’ı gördüğünde onunla dalga geçip gülüyordu. Liesos gence şunları söyledi:

–        Sen beni yenemezsin ve ölmek içinde çok gençsin.

–        Sen öleceksin ve bende seni yeneceğim!

Bu sözler üzerine Lieos Nestoras ile savaşmayı kabul etti. Dimitrios’un öğrencisi haç çιkardιktan sonra:

–        Dimitrios’un Tanrı’sı bana yardım et! , diye haykırdι.

Kılıcını kaptığı gibi saldırιp tek bir vuruşla devasa adamı yere yığdı ve onu öldürdü. Bütün arena sessizliğe büründü. Hayatında hiç bir zaman savaşmamış olan 20 yaşındaki bir genç putperestlerin sevgili kahramanını öldürmüştü. Bunun üzerine kral genci yanına çağırarak:

–        Hangi büyülerle yenilmez Lieos’u yenmeyi başardın?

  •        Büyülerle yenmedim. “Gerçek Tanrı olan Mesih İsa’nın gücü ile yendim!” diyerek  cevap verdi Nestoras.

Olaydan çok kızgın olan kral Lieos’un ölümüne neden olan kılıçla kendisinin de öldürülmesini emretti. Böylece aziz Nestoras öğretmeninin de söylediği gibi Mesih İsa adına şehit oldu. Yortusu kilisemiz tarafından 27 Ekim’de kutlanmaktadır.

Ο Δημήτριος, πέρασε περίπου ένα χρόνο στη φυλακή. Κατά τη διάρκεια αυτής της περιόδου, οι μαθητές του ερχόταν να επισκεφθούν τον άγιο, και εκείνος κατηχούσε.

Το 291, διεξάγονται αγώνες πάλης στην αρένα της Θεσσαλονίκης. Εκτός από τον Μαξιμιανό, παρεβρισκόμενος ήταν και Διοκλητιανός οι οποίοι και επέλεξαν τον γιγάντιο και ανίκητο Λυαίο να πολεμίσει με  Χριστιανούς. Όταν ο Νέστορας, ένας από τους μαθητές του Δημητρίου, άκουσε τις προσβολές του Λυαίου, πήγε στον Δημήτριο, και ζήτησε την ευλογία του να βγει νικητής της μάχης με τον Λυαίο.

Πάμε, αγαπητέ αδερφέ. Θα νικήσεις τον εχθρό σιυ, αλλά θα είσαι και μάρτυρας στο όνομα του Χριστού Ιησού, είπε ο Δημήτριος.

Ο Νέστορας επέστρεψε με χαρά στο γήπεδο. Πήρε ένα σπαθί και βγήκε για να πολεμήσει. Όταν οι άνθρωποι είδαν τον νεαρό Χριστιανό, τον χλέβασαν. Ο Λυαίος είπε στον νεαρό:

Δεν μπορείς να με νικήσεις και είσαι πολύ νέος για να πεθάνεις.

– Θα πεθάνεις και θα σε νικήσω! απάντησε ο Νέστορας και η μάχη ξεκίνησε.

Μαθητής του Δημήτρη, αφού έκανε τον σταυρό του:

Ο Θεός του Δημήτριου να ναι βοήθειά μου! φώναξε.

Καθώς άρπαξε το σπαθί του, επιτέθηκε,  και με ένα χτύπημα, θανάτωσε τον Λυαίο. Όλη η αρένα έμεινε σιωπηλή. Ένας 20χρονος έφηβος που δεν είχε πολεμήσει ποτέ στη ζωή του σκότωσε αείτητο ήρωα των ειδωλολατρών. Στη συνέχεια, ο αυτοκράτορας κάλεσε τον Νέστορα.

Με ποια ξόρκια κατάφερες να νικήσεις το ανίκητο Λυαίο;

Δεν έδρασα με ξόρκια. Με υπερέβη η δύναμη του αληθινού Θεού, του Χριστού Ιησού! απάντησε ο Νέστορας.

Εξοργισμένος από το συμβάν, ο βασιλιάς διέταξε σκοτώσουν τον Νέστορα με το σπαθί που σκοτώθηκε ο Λυαίος. Και έγιναν έτσι, όπως είπε ο Δημήτριος, ο Νέστορας μαρτύρησε στο όνομα του Ιησού Χριστού. Η εκκλησία μας γιορτάζει τη μνήμη του στις 27 Οκτωβρίου.

Dimitrios, the martyr of God, spent about a year in prison. During this time, his students came to visit the saint, and he was teaching them.

In 291, a fights were organised in Thessaloniki. Apart from Maksimianos, there was also Dioklitianos in the arena. Gladiator was Lieos a very powerful and gigantic person. He had not yet been defeated by anyone, nor had he spared the lives of those who fought him. When this warrior came to the stadium, he was cursing the Christians and inviting them to fight him. When Nestoras, one of the Dimitrius’ students, heard these words, he went to Dimitrius, to as for blessing to defeat  this gigantic man.

Go, dear brother. You will defeat your enemy, but you will also be a Martyr in the name of Jesus Christ, Dimitriıs said

Nestoras joyfully returned to the stadium. He took a sword and went out to fight. When the people saw the young Christian, they made fun of him and laughed. Lieos told the youngster:

You can’t beat me and you’re too young to die.

You will die and I will beat you!

On these words, Lieos agreed to fight Nestoras.

Dimitrios’ student, after doing the sign of the cross:

Dimitrios’ God, please help me! he cried out.

As he grabbed his sword, he attacked, with one hit, he knocked the giant man down and killed him. The whole arena fell silent. A 20-year-old youngster who had never fought in his life had killed the beloved hero of the pagans. Thereupon, the emperor called the young man:

With what spells did you manage to defeat the invincible Lieos?

He was not beaten by spells. I was conquered by the power of Jesus Christ, the true God!” Nestoras replied.

Enraged by the incident, the king ordered Nestor to be killed with the sword that Lieos was killed. Thus, as Dimitrius said, Nestor was martyred in the name of Jesus Christ. Church celebrates his name on 27 October.

Aziz Dimitrios Mesih İsa adına kanını dökeceği anı sabırsızlıkla bekliyordu. Kral, Nestoras’ın galibiyetini, Hristiyanlığın putlara karşı bir  galibiyeti gibi algıladığından çok sinirlendi. Bu yüzden Dimitrios’un da öldürülmesini emretti. Askerler hapse girdiklerinde aziz sağ kolunu kaldırarak onu kılıçlamalarını bekledi. Bedeninin ölümüyle Tanrı’nın sonsuz krallığına kavuşacaktı. Askerler azizin karnının yan tarafına indirdikleri kılıç darbeleriyle azizi öldürdüler.

Ο Άγιος Δημήτριος ανυπομονούσε τη στιγμή που θα μαρτυρούσε στο όνομα του Ιησού Χριστού. Ο αυτοκράτορας ήταν πολύ θυμωμένος όταν συνέδεσε την νίκη του Νέστορα ως νίκη του Χριστιανισμού ενάντια στην Ειδωλολατρείας. Γι ‘αυτό διέταξε να σκοτωθεί και ο Δημήτριος. Όταν οι στρατιώτες πήγαν στη φυλακή, ο Δημήτριος σήκωσε το δεξί του χέρι και περίμενε να τον ξιφίσουν. Με το θάνατο του σώματός του, η ψυχή του θα είχε το αιώνιο βασίλειο του Θεού. Οι στρατιώτες σκότωσαν τον Δημήτριο με τα σπαθιά τους στην πλευρά της κοιλιάς.

Saint Dimitrios was looking forward to the moment when he would shed his blood in the name of Jesus Christ. The emperor was very angry when he perceived Nestoras’ victory as a victory of Christianity against idols. That’s why he ordered Dimitrios to be killed as well. When the soldiers went to prison, Dimitrius lifted his right arm and waited for them to sword him. With the death of his body, he would have win the eternal kingdom of God. The soldiers killed him with their swords blows on the side of his belly.

Dimitrios’un bedenini Hıristiyanlar öldüğü yere gömdüler. Ama o zamandan beri mezarının içerisinden muhteşem bir koku yayılmaya ve muhteşem kokulu bir su akmaya başladı. O kirli mekan muhteşem kokuyor kimse bu olayın ne olduğunu anlayamıyordu. Bugüne kadar azizin bedeninin bulunduğu kilisede azizin yortusunun olduğu gün bütün kilise muhteşem kokuyor ve insanlar bu su ile kutsanıyorlar. Birçok kişi hastalığına derman buluyor. Azizin yortusu kilisemiz tarafından  26 Ekimde kutlanmaktadır. Aziz Dimitrios Selanik şehrinin koruyucusudur.”

Οι Χριστιανοί έθαψαν το σώμα του Δημητρίου στο μέρος που πέθανε. Από τότε, ένα υπέροχο άρωμα άρχισε να βγαίνει από τον τάφο του και άρχισε να ρέει μύρο. Το άλλωτε βρώμικο μέρος μυρίζει καταπληκτικά, κανείς δεν μπορούσε να καταλάβει τι ήταν αυτό το γεγονός. Στην εκκλησία όπου βρίσκεται το λείψανο του Αγίου Δημητρίου μέχρι σήμερα, ολόκληρη η εκκλησία μυρίζει υπέροχα την ημέρα της γιορτής του και οι πιστοί ευλογούνται  με αυτό το νερό. Πολλοί άνθρωποι βρίσκουν θεραπεία για την ασθένειά τους μέσω του νερού. Η μνήη του Αγίου γιορτάζεται από την εκκλησία μας στις 26 Οκτωβρίου. Ο Άγιος Δημήτριος είναι ο φύλακας της πόλης της Θεσσαλονίκης. “

The Christians buried Dimitrios’ body where he died. But since then, a magnificent scent began to emanate from his tomb and a wonderfully smelling water began to flow. The once dirty place smells amazing, no one could understand what this event was. In the church where the body of the Saint Dimitrius is located until today, the whole place smells wonderful on the day of the saint’s feast and people are blessed with this water. Many people find cure for their illness. St Dimitrius is  celebrated by our church on October 26th. Saint Dimitrios is the guardian of the city of Thessaloniki. ”

İnancı için ölümü göze almak tüm inançlar için kutsal bir davranıştır. Küçük çıkarları için inançlarına aykırı davrananlar ile yol alınmaz demiş atalarımız. Ne kadar doğru.

Το ρίσκο του θανάτου για τη πίστη είναι μια ιερή πράξη για όλες τις πεποιθήσεις. Οι πρόγονοί μας είπαν ότι όσοι ενεργούν ενάντια στις πεποιθήσεις τους για τα μικρά τους συμφέροντα δεν μπορούν να προχωρήσουν. Πόσο αληθές.

Risking death for faith is a sacred act for all beliefs. Our ancestors said that those who act against their beliefs for their small interests cannot proceed. How true.

Adamızda büyüyüp Patrik’lik mertebesine ulaşan BARTHOLOMEOS ve beraberinde bulunan konuklarımız ADAMIZA HOŞ GELDİNİZ.
