Η Άλκηστις Πρωτοψάλτη δίπλα στα παιδάκια του Ορφανοτροφείου "Μακάριος" στην Κένυα

 
Τον Ιούλιο του 2016 η Άλκηστις Πρωτοψάλτη έδωσε μία μεγάλη υπόσχεση. Να βρεθεί δίπλα στα παιδάκια του Ορφανοτροφείου Μακάριος που βρίσκεται στην Κένυα. Λίγο καιρό πριν, τα παιδάκια μαγεύονταν στους σκοπούς του Σταμάτη Κραουνάκη και τραγουδούσαν σε άπταιστα Ελληνικά τους μεθυστικούς στοίχους της Λίνας Νικολακοπούλου.
 
  

Τον Απρίλιο του 2017 η Άλκηστις κατάφερε να βρεθεί δίπλα στις 136 ψυχές του Ορφανοτροφείου Μακάριος, που βρίσκεται κάτω από τις φτερούγες του Ιδρύματος Sophia Foundation for Children, και τραγούδησε μαζί τους την "Σωτηρία της ψυχής" σαν να ήταν... η πρώτη φορά. Εκεί, αυτά τα πεταμένα, τα κακοποιημένα, τα παραμελημένα, τα άρρωστα παιδάκια της "δίδαξαν" ξανά, πως να τραγουδάει τον "Άγγελό μου" του Νίκου Μωραΐτη σε μία "πρόχειρη" μα Αγγελική ενορχήστρωση, που σίγουρα θα έκανε τον Στέφανο Κορκολή να βουρκώσει από συγκίνηση.
Τραγούδησε μέχρι και στα Σουαχίλι για τα παιδιά των φυλακών ανηλίκων στο Νακούρου παρέα με τον Θωμά Κωντογιώργη στη κιθάρα, τη Βασιλική Μαζαράκη στο αγγελικό βιολί της και τον Αλέξη Κώστα στα κρουστά, καθώς με την ψυχή της χόρευε ακούραστα η Πρόεδρος του Ιδρύματος Sophia Foundation for Children Μαρίνα Σιακόλα. Συγχαρητήρια για το Θεάρεστο έργο σας!

O AΛΕΞΑΝΔΡΙΝΟΣ ΠΡΟΚΑΘΗΜΕΝΟΣ ΣΤΗΝ 2Η ΔΙΕΘΝΗ ΔΙΑΣΚΕΨΗ ΤΩΝ ΑΘΗΝΩΝ



Την 30η Οκτωβρίου 2017, η ΑΘΜ ο Πάπας και Πατριάρχης Αλεξανδρείας και Πάσης Αφρικής κ.κ.Θεόδωρος Β΄, παρευρέθηκε ως προσκεκλημένος του Εξοχ. Υπουργού των Εξωτερικών της Ελλάδος κ.Νίκου Κοτζιά, στην 2η Διεθνή Διάσκεψη για τον «Θρησκευτικό και Πολιτιστικό Πλουραλισμό και την Ειρηνική Συνύπαρξη στη Μέση Ανατολή», που διεξάγεται στην Αθήνα.
Πρόκειται για ένα γεγονός διεθνούς εμβέλειας που διοργανώνει το Υπουργείο Εξωτερικών, σε μια συγκυρία όπου η κατάσταση στην Μέση Ανατολή παραμένει εκρηκτική. Με το ζητούμενο της ανεκτικότητας και της ειρηνικής συνύπαρξης να παραμένει ανησυχητικά επίκαιρο, καθώς η βία, η μισαλλοδοξία, ο θρησκευτικός φανατισμός και η ριζοσπαστικοποίηση συνεχίζουν να ταλανίζουν μεγάλο μέρος της Μέσης Ανατολής, η δεύτερη Διεθνής Διάσκεψη φιλοδοξεί, να προχωρήσει στην ενίσχυση ενός πλαισίου διαλόγου που προωθεί την προσέγγιση, τη δικτύωση, τον αλληλοσεβασμό και την ειρηνική συνύπαρξη μεταξύ των διαφορετικών θρησκευτικών και πολιτισμικών κοινοτήτων της περιοχής...

COMPLETION OF THE HOLY SYNOD OF THE HIERARCHS OF THE PATRIARCHATE OF ALEXANDRIA (2017)

 
 
Tuesday and the final Meeting today, 26th October 2017, of the Holy Synod of the Hierarchs of the Apostolic Throne of Alexandria presided over His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa.
Before the start, a Divine Liturgy was served at the Patriarchal Chapel of Ss Theodori. The Sacrament of the Divine Eucharist was served by Metropolitan Dimitrios of Irinopolis, who celebrated his name day. At the end of the Divine Liturgy, the Alexandrian Primate wished Metropolitan Dimitrios the very best on his name day.
After the regular prayer, the Deliberations began and before them, His Beatitude mentioned in gratitude: a) The absent Elder Metropolitan Petros of Aksum, for his many years and multifaceted ministry in the ancient Patriarchate of Alexandria and prayed for a long life for him and the completion of his writings, which will be another contribution to the recording of the multidimensional history of the Throne of St mark. b) He also mentioned His Eminence Metropolitan Ignatios of Pentapolis, who is ill, and who is in hospital, praying for his health underlining his self-sacrificial contribution over many years, in the historic bastions of Orthodox Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as a Metropolitan, but also as a Priest and as a Retiree (but never resting) in the Kananga region.
 
 
 
Thereafter, His Beatitude the Patriarch laid before the Body of Hierarchs the proposal that, due to the particular political problems, the country of Eritrea should be placed in the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Holy Metropolis of Nubia, and that His Eminence Savvas, Metropolitan of Nubia be called “Metropolitan of Nubia, Most Honoured and Exarch of All Sudan and Eritrea”.
The Hierarchs accepted and voted on the proposal of His Beatitude. The Primate wished the Metropolitans Seraphim of Zimbabwe and Angola and Alexandros of Nigeria on the completion of twenty years since their election and ordination, that their year of their multiform and productive ministry may be many, to the glory of God.
The Plenary Session of the Holy Synod followed, with a speech by His Eminence Seraphim, Metropolitan of Zimbabwe and Angola, on the topic: "The Course of Theological Dialogues and Their Perspectives", in which His Eminence developed briefly the history of theological dialogues with Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Lutherans, etc. He also highlighted the individual problems and the problems of these dialogues, as well as those issues where no common stance has been found, with the result that they have stopped or require more time from one side in order to be able to continue.
During the speech as well as at the end, His Eminence Seraphim replied and clarified many details and a multipage supporting text was distributed. Concluding its deliberations, the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Alexandria thanked the All-merciful and Providential Lord, for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in its efforts, and His Beatitude for his wise counsel and constant care for all of the local Churches in Africa, to the glory of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Οι μαθητές των Ελληνικών Σχολείων της Αλεξάνδρειας τίμησαν την επέτειο του «ΟΧΙ»

Ελληνική Κοινότητα Αλεξανδρείας












Την αυτοθυσία των Αιγυπτιωτών Ελλήνων και την προσφορά τους στην πατρίδα κατά τον Β΄Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο, ανέδειξαν με τις φετινές εκδηλώσεις τους οι μαθητές των Ελληνικών Σχολείων, της Τοσιτσαίας Σχολής και του Αβερωφείου Γυμνασίου – Λυκείου της Αλεξάνδρειας.

Επέλεξαν έτσι κατά την επετειακή εορτή τους για την 28η Οκτωβρίου, μέσα στο Θέατρο Ιουλίας Σαλβάγου, στο περίφημο Ελληνικό Τετράγωνο του Σάτμπι, να παρουσιάσουν ένα μικρό μονόπρακτο, που έδειχνε ακριβώς την άμεση απόφασή τους να καταταγούν αυτόβουλα στον ελληνικό στρατό και να πάνε να πολεμήσουν εναντίον των Ιταλών, όταν ξέσπασε ο πόλεμος, το 1940.

Έδειξαν με αυτόν τον τρόπο, το πώς αποχωρίζονταν τις οικογένειές τους, το πώς έσπευδαν να παρουσιαστούν τότε στο Ελληνικό Προξενείο στην Αλεξάνδρεια, για να πάρουν την επόμενη μέρα το πλοίο της γραμμής (που υπήρχε τότε) και συνέδεε την πόλη τους και την Αίγυπτο με τον Πειραιά.

"THE TWENTY-FIRST SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
His Grace celebrated at Sts George and Catherine Gishari Community Rwanda. In this Community we have over 300 catecumen and already 100 have been baptized. Their Dream is to have a priest who will be near them every moment as they are growing in the Orthodox Faith. At the moment Sub-Deacon Theodoros Musonera Does Typika for them and once in a Month the Bishop and the Three Priest who have their own community service them once in a while until they shall get their own Priest.
Although it is difficult to be a Christian, it can never be said that it is complicated. If we look at all the philosophies and religions of the world, Christianity is by far the simplest. Even all four records of the words of Christ its Founder can be written down in less than one hundred pages. And the contents of those pages are very simple. Often, for instance, Christ speaks in parables, in very simple words, using images of a shepherd, a king, a fisherman, a poor man, a rich man or a vineyard-owner. Each of these parables expresses in a few lines ideas which it would take whole books to explain in the words of the learned.
Thus today's Gospel is the parable of the sower who went out to sow seed, the Word of God. In it we notice how of the four groups of people who were granted the Word of Life by Christ the sower, only one group actually received it.
The first seed fell by the wayside, it was downtrodden and eaten by 'the fowl of the air'. By 'the fowl of the air' we do not understand the birds, but the demons who inhabit the airs. They are able to 'devour' the Word of God from people's hearts, because their hearts are hard and they tread down the seed of God. The demons can do nothing if we do not first allow them to do what they want.
The second seed fell on rock and failed to germinate and develop roots because there was no moisture. Such seed fails to develop among people whose interest in the things of God is merely superficial, for whom the Faith is just a hobby, a fad. They flare up with emotional excitement but are unable to feed and nourish the Holy Spirit. Their enthusiasm does not turn into faith, because at the first temptation, at the first difficulty, they fall away.
The third seed falls among thorns, Thorns are the weeds of the passions, the cares of this world, with all its riches and pleasures. Those whose souls are choked with such cares can never bring their faith to perfection, it remains undeveloped. Their faith is never a priority and they mix it in with their cares and pleasures.
What are we to do, how are we to avoid falling into one of these three categories of people who never cultivate the seed of God?
The answer is given in today's Gospel in twelve simple words:
First of all, so that the seed of God does not fall by the wayside and may not be downtrodden or devoured by the demons, we must have an 'honest and good heart'. We must not be hard. We must not make dishonest excuses for our failings, we must not do evil, we must be honest and good in our hearts. This is called Christianity.
Secondly, so that we do not fall into careless excitement, we must cultivate the seed of God, giving moisture to it, so that it puts out roots and develops, in other words, we must 'keep the word', by obeying the commandments. This is called Orthodox Christianity.
Finally, so that the seed of God is not choked with the thorns and weeds of our passions, we must 'bring forth fruit with patience'. We cannot expect sudden and astonishing progress, with our many worldly cares. We have to be patient and persevere, making what at first may only be a mere interest into our priority and living it as a way of life. This is called salvation.
Thus today Christ gives us not learned volumes of complicated instructions to live by, but three simple rules for salvation:
Have an 'honest and good heart'.
Keep the word.
Bring forth fruit with patience.
There is no more to say."

"These African faces are the new faces of the Church..."

This is what modern mission work should look like: indigenous, authentic, and driven by genuine need. Look carefully. These African faces are the new faces of the Church. These are the new apostles of the faith. This is where the new duties of the Christian Church are calling us.
Fr. Constantinos Eliud Muthiru is a man I genuinely respect, admire, and feel honored to call my friend. I hope someday to meet him in person, face to face - but our long conversations and shared contacts and experiences have placed in my heart a deep conviction of the fundamental goodness of what he is doing there in the southern Aberdare mountains of Kenya - with the full support and recommendation of his canonical Orthodox hierarch.
Please - if you have anything at all that you can give to support his ministry and care for the orphans and poor of his community - give generously. You have my word of honor that it shall not be wasted, nor go amiss.

"Μην ξεχάσεις την Αφρική...!!"

 


 
 
Να μας θυμάσαι.. 
( στους εθελοντές της 6ης αποστολής  στην Ουγκάντα (Ιούλιος –Αύγουστος 2017)
Τη σκόνη από τα παπούτσια σου μη βιαστείς να τινάξεις
Τη λάσπη σου από τα  ρούχα σου να την πάρεις μαζί σου
Το νερό από τη βροχή μην το αφήσεις να στεγνώσει.
Απ τα χέρια των γερόντων μην ξεχάσεις τις χαρακιές.
Το χουχούλιασμα των παιδιών στον κόρφο σου, μην ξεχάσεις.
Τα σοκολατάκια που γύριζαν στα χέρια σου μέσα μη λησμονήσεις.
Τις φωνές των εφήβων ,τη δύναμη,το γέλιο,το δάκρυ τον πολύ πόνο ,τη μεγάλη χαρά, να τα πάρεις μαζί σου.

Τα μάτια φεγγάρια των μωρών στο βλέμμα σου να χεις.
Τις μεγάλες ώρες που ζήσαμε όταν  ένα μικρό γινόταν χριστιανάκι.
Μην ξεχάσεις την Αφρική.
Να χαρείς μην ξεχάσεις.
Θα σου κάνει καλό,όταν την Αφρική θυμάσαι.
Όταν ζεις τους δικούς σου καυμούς και σαν από συνήθειο λες :σαν εμένα δεν έχει
Να θυμάσαι την Αφρική.
Και για όλα που έδωσες στην Ουγκάντα, να θυμάσαι πως οι προσευχές αυτών των ανθρώπων ακούγονται πιότερο στο Θεό,για σένα και τους δικούς σου.
Ο παπαΓιώργης το λέει για σένα.Θυμάσαι;
Άλλο δώρο για σένα δεν έχουμε , από την προσευχή μας μονάχα.
