    The ancestral home of opera singer Maria Callas in Neochori, Messinia, Greece, will host a unique night of opera on the night of July 8, in honor of the diva and the new museum dedicated to her life and work created there by the Oichalia municipality.

    The house once owned by Callas’ family was recently acquired by the local authority, which decided to repair and rebuild it using the original building material strewn around the site and turn it into a visitable Callas museum and research centre.

    IF YOU consult “The Orthodox Church”, a standard introduction for English-speakers penned by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, you will learn the following:

    Because Orthodox are convinced that the body is sanctified and transfigured together with the soul, they have an immense reverence for the relics of the saints. Like Roman Catholics, they believe that the grace of God present in the saints’ bodies during life remains active in their relics…and God uses these relics as a channel of divine power and an instrument of healing.

    The street art in Athens is said to be the biggest in the world. You can’t help but notice the excessive amount of graffiti that coats every available surface throughout city, where every available wall, shop front, brick wall or obscure alley is a canvas waiting to be filled with artistic optimism, political reference or social satire.
