However, the people of that time as well as of the past times were deeply religious and believed in the ideals and values ​​with which the nation and the nation of the Greeks were founded. In similar cases when barbarians besieged the ruling city of Constantinople, Our Lady always hurried to strengthen and cover the Greek race. For this reason, both our fathers and the people of 1940 of our homeland, in the face of the danger of the enemy, which was an unequal struggle, turned to Our Lady and Our Lady responded to the Albanian front that our heroic army was advancing, Our Lady guided them and strengthened them. There are many testimonies about the woman in black hovering over the heads of our heroic soldiers.

So today, gathered in the temples, all Orthodox Christians return thanksgiving to Our Lady and we ask her to strengthen and awaken the modern young Greeks of our homeland, so that by strengthening the faith and the revision of our despised values ​​we can let us gain strength in the life of freedom that our fathers gave us. Those who did not fall for altars and hearths, for faith and homeland, may the Lord God rest them.
