https://agioritikesmnimes.blogspot.gr/2017/09/9638.htmlBlack flags indicating "Antichrists out from Mount Athos" have been waving since yesterday, Tuesday, at the Holy Monastery of Docheiariou on Mount Athos. This is an act of the Monastery which is related to the visit of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, canceled by the Holy Mountain, to the Panagia Perivoli.
As it is known, the Prime Minister was going to visit the Holy Monastery of Pantokrator with the Ecumenical Patriarch. Bartholomew, but in their vote the majority of the representatives of the monasteries canceled the visit .
The matter was publicly mentioned in a letter and the representative of the Holy Monastery of Xeropotamou, Hieromonk Paul, who, in his statement at the meeting, stressed that they should ask the Prime Minister not to make the visit.
The Abbot of Docheiariou Monastery, Elder Gregory, had openly opposed this visit by calling upon the Holy Fathers to resist.
A few hours ago, Abbot Gregory made public a new article in his speech, which he mentions for the vote: "The battle has taken place, and the poverty and inadequacy of the occupants has been made manifest. The cross is victorious, the protector of this place, the Virgin Mary, is victorious, the prayers of the tiny monks is victorious, and the great slander of the greatest satrap of these latter years has failed to overcome us. But it is a sadness to our hearts that our monasteries betray all of these to gain the favor of rulers."
