“Not being allowed to perform liturgies is the saddest experience I ever had in my life. It is the first time I experience something like this in 43 years of priesthood,” Metropolitan Makarios of Sidirokastro said, speaking on a local TV station.
Moreover, the Metropolitan of Sidirokastro referred to the decision to suspend liturgies in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. “The situation is different. We must accept it, but we should not exaggerate,” he said. Finally, he pointed out, “We must all be disciplined and we will get through it with God’s help.”
