By order of Archbishop Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain, Archdeacon George preached the Divine Word, referring to the example of the brave Myrrhbearers who were not bent by the dangers but with courage and faith in the Saviour’s coming, marched towards the empty tomb of Christ and became the first to hear the joyful message of the Resurrection.
