莱斯沃斯关于大天使迈克尔的故事

每年11月8日,希腊庆祝天使和大天使。The Greeks with angelic names celebrate too.Aggelos,Stamatis,Michael,Gabriel and Stratos are just a few of these names.

为了庆祝这个重要的日子,我在这里分享一些关于大天使迈克尔的故事,当地人曾经在迈蒂琳岛和我分享过。But first,天使简介:

The Greek word for angel is Aggelos,which means ‘messenger'.不同种类的天使可以在天使等级中找到。等级最高的是基路伯,雪拉芬和王座。Three of the most revered archangels are Michael,加布里埃尔和拉斐尔。

Archangel Michael is the ultimate military ‘superhero' that the faithful call upon when in need of protection.His name means ‘Who is like God'.你只需要说三次“大天使迈克尔,保护我!据说他会冲到你身边,确保你不会受到伤害。除保护外,He also provides courage and strength.

Archangel Gabriel is said to provide strength and guidance to those who need Him.他的名字意思是‘God is my strength'.

Archangel Raphael is the one to invoke when healing is required.His name means ‘Healing power of God' and He responds to prayers to provide healing on a physical,情绪或精神层面。

Now,to share the stories that the locals of Mandamatho in Mytilene shared with me:

曼达马托有一座修道院,我很高兴去参观,and its church is dedicated to Archangel Michael.这座教堂以其古老的大天使标志以及陈列在那里的铁鞋而闻名。据当地人说,大天使晚上穿铁鞋在村子里走来走去。

许多人声称在晚上听到了从屋顶传来的巨响,大家都相信这是他的铁蹄声,up on roofs and on the streets,to patrol the village when the sun goes down.

其他人声称看到他的影子在教堂里四处游荡。

当地人偶尔更换铁鞋,and many offer new pairs from time to time too,seeing that they tend to find signs of wear and tear on them,好像有人真的戴着它们…

一个当地人告诉我这个神奇的故事:

There was a villager who was renowned for being highly blasphemous.整天他都会发誓,using sacred names in vain,大天使麦克是他最喜欢的人之一,seeing that he used His name to swear heavily on a daily basis.一个晚上,他在梦中看见一个高个子男人。他看上去很强壮,穿着军装。The man in the dream began to beat up the blasphemous villager pretty badly.Punches,好玩,拍打,你说出它,因为他的亵渎而告诉他。当他醒来时,他的身上布满了瘀伤……不用说,他很快意识到大天使迈克尔亲自拜访过他,并停止了咒骂。字面上,一夜之间!!

另一个当地人有一个更有趣的故事要和我分享。It was about a man who had a sick child.一个晚上,大天使麦克在梦中出现在他面前,做出了一个毁灭性的宣告——他来把生病的孩子带走了。那人开始嚎叫,哭着求大天使重新考虑。天使长说,“好吧!我会让你选择:我要带你的孩子还是带你的牛到你的田里去?'

‘Of course,no need to ask,“那人在梦中回答说,“请把牛带走!'

当他醒来时,他冲到孩子的床边,发现感觉好多了,and it was eventually cured.As for the cow,那人那天早上发现它死在地里。

围绕着古老的大天使迈克尔的传说是这样的:

The monastery was raided one day by Saracen pirates who attacked the monks and slaughtered them.只有一个人幸存下来讲述这个故事;一个年轻的僧侣设法躲在屋顶上,从那里观看了大屠杀。据传说,之后,他看到大天使迈克尔在被屠杀的僧侣尸体上盘旋。

灵感来自愿景,为了纪念他们,he took some of the blood-stained soil,把它和蜡混合在一起,做了天使长的脸。今天,仅显示全身图标的头部。

在Mandamatho的修道院周围进行3D步行,and see the infamous icon and other relics inside the church to the sound of ecclesiastic hymns.到这里(语言为希腊语)

除了曼达马托的保护人(以及一般的迈蒂琳岛)以外,大天使迈克尔也是希腊空军的保护者。Every year,11月8日,几天前,希腊空军举行各种庆祝活动来纪念他。如果你在大日子附近读这篇文章,查看他们的网站,了解您附近的任何活动。Go酒店雇员和饭馆雇员

希腊复活节的内部观点

在希腊复活节是最明亮的节日,even more so than Christmas.The Greeks celebrate it with wonderful customs that make it a huge joy to attend the festivities.不管你在希腊哪里,耶稣受难日的晚上,你手上拿着一支点燃的棕色蜡烛,跟随墓志铭的队伍,在清爽的夜空中,院子里的茉莉花和金银花的香味总是让我心潮澎湃,and the solemn melody of the hymn ‘Oh glyki mou aiar' delights my ears.墓志铭是一种木质结构,装饰着许多鲜花。A depiction of Christ lies inside and the epitaph serves as His tomb.Seeing that the procession symbolizes His funeral,这个游行队伍的气氛是哀伤的,声音保持在尊敬的低音量。

Midnight on Holy Saturday is the exact opposite experience.Here,气氛愉快,and how can it not be with the fireworks exploding overhead and the church bells ringing madly!祭司将圣光(当日从耶路撒冷圣母玛利亚的坟墓飞到乡下,按时分发给每一个教会)带出来,and people light up their white or red candles as they kiss and exchange the news of Jesus' rising from the dead.One person will say ‘Christos Anesti' (Christ has risen) and the other will respond ‘Alithos Anesti' (indeed,He has) or ‘Alithos,哦,凯里奥斯(真的,上帝已经拥有了。

复活节那天,希腊人起得很早,把羊羔和kokoritsi放在烤肉架上。午餐是一个盛大的庆祝活动,包括一起碰撞复活节彩蛋(传统上染成红色)。

除了可以在希腊任何地方采样的上述庆祝活动外,各地的情况各不相同。For example,在九头蛇岛上,the procession of the epitaph is not done on the road but in the sea by boat.Also,其他地方有特殊的习俗,例如,奇奥斯岛上两座教堂之间壮观的“火箭战争”和全国各地焚烧犹大雕像。

到目前为止,and I am not just saying this because I am biased – everyone agrees here – the brightest Easter you can ever experience in Greece takes place in Corfu town.

圣斯皮里登的圣迹每年在大游行期间在镇上被拍摄数次。

除了在这里举行的众多墓志游行和壮观的烟花表演外,Holy Saturday stands out for two things: the grand procession of St Spyridon,schools,boy scouts,以及上午9点在旧城开始的慈善管弦乐队,古老的“博蒂兹”习俗是一种奇观,每个人一生中至少应该看一次。

Botides are massive ceramic pots that the Corfiots throw from high balconies when the bell tolls the ‘First Ressurection' at 11:00 am before a huge crowd.What follows is a pandemonium of cheers and noise that is said to ward off evil and celebrates the victory of Man over death.The atmosphere soon becomes electric and you feel so elated,感觉就像你准备好了在背上长翅膀然后飞起来。You have to experience it firsthand,I guess,but that's the best way I can describe the feeling!Here's a little taste:

Here,I will also share Amleto (Little Hamlet,from Faccio's opera) – my favorite piece of music played by the Old Philarmonic in Corfu town on Saturday morning during the grand procession I mentioned earlier.当乐队开始演奏这首歌以充分享受它时,当地人完全沉默不语——这是一首科菲奥特人喜爱的音乐,包括我,因为它有独特的力量来强迫和使你的心膨胀。你是法官——尽管再次,you have to be there to experience the atmosphere to the max:

And below,李斯顿-阿梅托在广场(Spianada)拍摄的视频从2:10开始。

For the Greeks,复活节是一种宗教经历,在他们的灵魂里持续着。这是一个在内心聚集希望和力量并继续前进的机会,no matter the hardship.这是希腊的秘密之一,如果你喜欢,因为他们不断更新的能力,能够抵御逆境,保持信心。在圣周期间,希腊人彼此祝愿“卡利阿纳斯塔西”(复活快乐)。这不仅意味着在神圣的星期六享受午夜的欢庆活动,也意味着他们生活中的复活;it wishes the preservation of hope until a better day comes.因此,如你所知,对普通希腊人来说,复活节不仅仅是一个庆祝的理由,也是一种心理疗法——一种新希望的提供者。I hope this makes sense.为了它的价值,this is the best way I can share it with you,对希腊人来说复活节是什么?!

And with this,I bid you adieu,wishing you a wonderful Easter no matter where you are and how you plan to celebrate.

Please note: if you ever plan to visit Greece for Easter,请先在线查看正统复活节的日期。It coincides with Easter in the rest of the world only once in a few years!!

And now,我去厨房做复活节饼干。神圣周对希腊家庭主妇来说是一个忙碌的星期。谢天谢地,我已经给复活节彩蛋染色了!我用红洋葱叶和咖喱做我的,以避免那些讨厌的化学物质。看看我是怎么准备的在这里

Kali Anastasi&复活节快乐!!
