Olympian gives metal to Athonite monastery
« on: April 02, 2013, 06:47:51 PM »
On March 27, the Olympic champion Ilias Iliadis visited the Vatopedi Monastery on the Holy mountain of Athos where during his meeting with the Monastery's Superior, elder Ephraim, he gave his Olympic medal as a gift to the wonder-working Icon of the Mother of God Paramythia ("Exhortation", "Joy and Consolation"), reports
