The crucified apostle, having Sunday School Director - Ellen Souris given glory to God, said: "Lord Jesus Christ, receive my YAL Coordinator - Costa Karageorgis spirit." Then a blazing ray of divine light illumined the cross and the martyr crucified upon it. When the light faded, the holy Apostle Andrew had already given up his holy soul to the Lord. Maximilla, the wife of the prefect, had the body of the saint taken down from the cross, and buried him with honor. A few centuries later, under the emperor Constantine the Great, the relics of the holy Apostle Andrew were solemnly transferred to Constantinople and placed in the church of the Holy Apostles beside the relics of the holy Evangelist Luke and St Paul's disciple St Timothy.

Το μόνο που τειχίσητε ημάς, σκέπη των πτερύγων, της αύλου ξέρουμε είναι ότι υπήρχαν προ της δημιουργίας. υμων δόξης, φρορούντας ημάς προσπίπτοντας, Λέει το πνεύμα του Θεού στον Ιώβ: «Ότε εκτενώς και βοώντας, εκ των κινδύνον λυτρώσασθε εγγενήθησαν άστρα, ηνεσάν με φωνή μεγάλη ημας, ως Ταξιάρχαι των άνω δυνάμεων» πάντες Αγγελοί μου» (Iώβ 38,7).

Και ποτέ μην ξεχνούμε ότι διακονίας αποστελλόμενα δια τους μέλλοντας κληρονομείν είναι τιμή μας ότι πάντοτε έχομε συνοδεία στο πλευρό έναν σωτηρίαν» (Εβραίους 1-14). Άγγελο φύλακα πιστό. Ας μη λησμονούμε τον αόρατο αυτόν Ο αριθμός των Αγγέλων είναι πολύ μεγάλος. Οι Άγγελοι συμπαραστάτη μας και ευεργέτη μας.

Δευτέρα—Εξουσίαι, Κυριότητες, Δυνάμεις. Με την αγάπη του Κυρίου, Τρίτη—Άγγελοι, Αρχάγγελοι, Αρχαί. Αιδ. Εμμανουήλ Σ. Μεταξάς Οι Άγγελοι έχουν πολλαπλούν έργο. Στην Παλαιά Διαθήκη, Πρωτοπρεσβύτερος συχνά αναφέρονται έργα των Αγγέλων. Στον Πατριάρχη Αβραάμ ενεφανίσθησαν οι Άγγελοι, για να αναπτερώσουν το φρόνημά του και να στηρίξουν την πίστι του. Άγγελος Κυρίου ελάλησε προς τον ελευθερωτή των Εβραίων τν Μωϊση. Εκεί που οι Άγγελοι έχουν πάρει ιδιαίτερη σημασία είναι στην ενανθρώπιση του Χριστού για το έργο της σωτηρίας των ανθρώπων. Άγγελος φέρνει το μήνυμα στην Παναγία για τον ερχομό του Θείου Βρέφους. Άγγελοι υμνούν τον έρχομό του Σωτήρος Χριστού στην ανθρωπότητα. Και όταν στην έρημο που ήταν ο Χριστός και ο Διάβολος τον υπέβαλε σε πειρασμούς τότε παρουσίαζονται Άγγελοι΄και τον διακόνουν. «Τότε αφίησιν αυτόν ο Διάβολος και ιδού Άγγελοι προσήλθον και διηκόνουν αυτώ.» (Ματθαίου 4,11). Και όταν ο Χριστός ήταν επάνω στον σταυρόν και ο ιδρωτάς του έπεφτε στη γη. ‘Αγγελοι προσήλθον και διηκόνουν αυτώ. «Τότε αφίησιν αυτόν ο Διάβολος.» (Ματθαίου 4.11). Επίσης όταν αναστήθηκε ο Χριστός, οι Άγγελοι ήταν που έφεραν το μήνυμα της Αναστάσεως στις Μυροφόρες όταν πήγαν μύρα στον τάφο του Χριστού και βρήκαν τον τάφο χωρίς το σώμα του Κυρίου. Άκουσαν τη φωνή του Αγγέλου να τους λέγει: «Τι ζητείται τον ζώντα μετά των ενκρών αγερθη—αναστήθηκε ο Κύριος.» Όλοι οι Πατέρες της εκκλησίας μας κάνουν λόγο για τους φύλακας Αγγέλους από τον ιερόν Χρυσόστομο, τον Μέγα Βασίλειο μέχρει και τον Ιωάννη Δαμασκηνό.

Another program established by the Ministry of Education in Greece is the “Elinomathia” program for students ages 12 years and older. This is a 3-level certificate program. The first two levels of certification allow individuals who wish to obtain employment in Greece. The third level certificate allows students to attend university without any further testing beyond this certificate. Mrs. Voula Polychronopoulos offers preparatory classes to students who plan to take the exams for these certificates. For more information, please contact Kiria Voula.
