Turkey's Multi-Cultural Heritage(*+*)


Ecumene said...

Catholics are busy preparing for prayers tonight and for a long trip tomorrow that will ferry them to Ephesus, where they will participate in mass near Our Lady’s house (Meryemn Ana).
In Antioch, a prayer meeting will be held by Catholics and Orthodox together… in the city where the disciples of Jesus were called “Christians”
From Antioch, tomorrow afternoon, all Christians (mostly Catholics but certainly also Orthodox and Armenians) will travel in coaches from the Vicariate of Anatolia – a vast territory one and half times the size of Italy – to Ephesus, a journey of more than 1000 km and at least 18 hours.
Christians in Turkey make up 0.6% of the population, with Catholics amounting to 32,000.
Yesterday, at the Angelus, the pope had very cordial words for the Turkish people: “From this moment, I want to send cordial greetings to the dear Turkish people, rich in history and culture; to these people and its leaders, I express sentiments of respect and sincere friendship.”

Ο Ναός της Εφεσίου Αρτέμιδος έχει πάψει να υφίσταται προ πολλού! Το όνομα Ηρόστρατος είναι Τουρκικό άραγε ;-Ρ

Οι γείτονες μας έχουν ξεπεράσει σε γελοιότητα όταν χαρακτηρίσουν τα μνημεία του Μικρασιατικού πολιτισμού ως ...Τουρκικά!!! Φυσικά, οι λαοί που άλλοτε μεγαλούργησαν στη Μικρά Ασία δεν εξαφανίστηκαν, απλά εκτουρκίστηκανόταν κυριάρχησαν οι - σχετικά ολιγάριθμοι - Τούρκοι στην περιοχή με τον ίδιο τρόπο που είχαν εξελληνιστεί πρωτύτερα.

Υπάρχει ολόκληρη παραφιλολογία που θέλει τους ...Τρώες προγόνους των Τούρκων!!!! Για να μη λέμε ότι Λιακόπουλοι υπάρχουν μόνον εδώ!

The Temple of Artemis (in Greek — Artemision, and in Latin — Artemisium), also known as Temple of Diana, was a temple dedicated to Artemis completed around 550 BC at Ephesus (in present-day Turkey) under the Achaemenid dynasty of the Persian Empire. Nothing remains of the original temple, which was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

"Let us sing joyfully, even when we are tested by difficulties and dangers, as we have learned from the fine witness given by the Roman priest Don Andrea Santoro, whom I am pleased to recall in this celebration," the pope said.

Santoro was shot to death in February as he knelt in prayer at his church in the Turkish city of Trabzon, on the Black Sea. He was attacked amid the furor over Dutch cartoons that satirized the prophet Muhammad.

On October 10, 2006 the accused Ouzhan Akdin was sentenced to 18 years and ten months in jail for "premeditated murder" by a court in Ankara.[4] According to the apostolic vicar to Anatolia, Msgr. Luigi Padovese, neither the killer nor his mother showed any remorse during the trial. She even compared her son to Ali Agca and said that his deed "was committed in the name of Allah and was a gift to the state and the nation.

Later Wednesday, the pope flew to Istanbul where he joined the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I for a prayer service inside St. George Church, headquarters of Greek Orthodox worship.

They face up to nine years’ jail after going on trial last week for “insulting Turkishness” during their religious work, under the notorious Article 301 of the Turkish penal code. It is the same law that put Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel literature laureate, in the dock, and which the European Union wants amended.

The two missionaries were accused of calling Islam a backward religion and claiming that Turks would never become civilised unless they converted.

Mr Topal and Mr Tastan have forgiven their accusers. “We have a woman in our group who puts up with so much from her husband who is a Muslim. But even she has to love him because the Bible says so,” Mr Tastan says.

- Τότε γιατί πηγαίνετε σε ελληνορθόδοξο μοναστήρι;
- Ορθόδοξος, μουσουλμάνος, δεν έχει σημασία.
- Γιατί πηγαίνετε; Επιμένω εγώ...
- Πίστη!
Έμεινα άφωνη με την απάντηση! Μια μουσουλμάνα πιστεύει στον Άγιο Γεώργιο..!
