- Archbishop calls on youth to resist the steamroller of globalisation
Athens, 30/03/2000 (ANA)
Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos on Wednesday called on youth
to resist the steamroller of globalisation by using Greek tradition and history
as weapons and not allow Greece to turn into a European resort.
Christodoulos, who arrived in the northern city of Thessaloniki in the morning,
visited the Ecclesiastical Academy of Thessaloniki and the Ecclesiastical Lyceum
of Neapoli and met with teachers and students.
Addressing a large audience at the Ecclesiastical Lyceum, the Archbishop
cautioned students on the pitfalls of life and warned of the dangers entailed
for the survival of Hellenism by the phenomenon of globalisation.
Christodoulos also referred to an Arabic proverb according to which "he who
learns from his mistakes is wise, but he who learns from the mistakes of others
is even wiser."
