A message to the candidates for the university entrance exams was sent by Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece, emphasizing that these days we all think with love and pray for the pupils who are going to compete in the exams.
He put a special emphasis on this year, as the pupils had to deal with the pandemic, among other things, which led everyone to different habits and a new way of life, “to thoughts and reflections.”
The Archbishop addressed the pupils, telling them that “in life we give exams every day. Every result, good or bad, gives us knowledge and maturity. The next day, which will give the opportunity to correct deficiencies and improve weaknesses, always follows.”
Finally, after reminding that “life opportunities do not begin, nor end with these exams, but with constant struggle,” he wished the pupils “to be illuminated by the Holy Spirit, so that, armed with courage, patience and composure, you achieve your goals and see your efforts get rewarded.”
