Christ Gives Sight to a Certain Blind Man (Greek)

As found in the Gospel of St Luke, Christ brings sight to a certain blind man. Fr Pavlos (Stratigeas) reads that passage (LUKE 18:35-43).

Those of you who knew Fr Pavlos (now Metropolitan) before his 2006 stroke will never forget his powerful readings of the Gospels during services, and his inspiring sermons given impromptu. This video is a reminder of those days. For those of you who did not know him then, this is what we all have lost. It was recorded at the Cathedral in 1991 during the construction period, and was the first Divine Liturgy done under the giant new dome. At the end of the service you will see Met. Petros, of blessed memory, asking the people to support the great under-taking of building the Cathedral.
