Life of St. Demetrios in Greek from Matia.gr
Life of St. Demetrios in English from
the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America http://www.goarch.org/special/demetrios/index_html
Μέγαν εύρατο εν τοις κινδύνοις
Σε υπέρμαχον η οικουμένη
Αθλοφόρε τα έθνη τροπούμενον.
Ως ουν Λυαίου καθείλες την έπαρσιν,
εν τω σταδίω θαρρύνας τον Νέστορα, ούτως,
Άγιε Μεγαλομάρτυς Δημήτριε, Χριστόν τον Θεόν ικέτευε,
δωρήσασθαι ημίν το μέγα έλεος.
Troparion (Tone 3)
O victorious Demetrios, thou wast a protection for the world and an invincible soldier of Christ. Thou didst inspire Nestor to humble Lyaios. Intercede with Christ our God to save us
The coloring page to the right of the post was created by Egle-Ekaterine Potamitis. More of her work can be seen at the Potamitis Publishing link under learning resources.

"The Anniversary of NO", that we so endearingly call OXI (ochi) Day commemorates Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas' rejection of the ultimatum made by Italian dictator Mussolini on October 28, 1940. Who would have thought that a poor, small country like Greece would have been so brave in their simple response of "OXI" No!. No, Greece would not allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy strategic locations. Yes, they would follow their simple answer with bravery of heart and spirit and mark the beginning of Greece's participation in World War II. Since 1942, October 28th has been celebrated in Greek communities around the world with programs and parades.
Join in the celebration of OXI day by coloring your own Greek flag to display at home:
