Blessing of the Waters in Greece

Greetings and prayers from the parish of St. Photios, Thessaloniki. One of our priests got very excited with the blessing of the Holy Water :-), and a brave young man defied the snow, braved freezing water and swam in the Thermaikos Gulf for the Holy Cross!​

    Brave young man.
    In December I’m always somewhat sour that we will probably never have a white Christmas, but looking at the pics, I’m really grateful for Theophany in summer!
