Jesus Christ & the Assumption of Mary in Heaven

“I am the Light of the World.
Whoever follows me
Will never walk in darkness,
But will have the light of life.”

I embroidered this card to honour Orthodoxy and the great celebration of the Assumption of Mary in Heaven.

This wonderful event is celebrated every year on 15th August on the island of Tinos.

Also, I am touched with emotion because on this day 74 years ago the legendary ship "Elli" was torpedoed at the start of World War II.

That was a time when Greeks fought like giants and changed the course of history.

I will offer this hand-embroidered card as a present to Metropolite Damaskinos of Dydimoteiho - Orestiada - Soufli.
