In his unique way, the priest of the Holy Church of Panagia Evangellistria on the island of Chios made again a spectacular entrance bringing the joyful message of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ to the faithful. Holding a basket will laurels, priest Christoforos Gourlis leaves the Sanctuary with a jump.
He goes around distributing, or better saying, throwing, laurels to the cheerful faithful.
The chandeliers are moving and the wooden benches are producing a loud noise as Jesus exits the Grave....
In times of internet technology, the faithful do not miss the opportunity but raise their smart and iphones, taking shots and footage from the event and upload it on social media.
Father Christoforos is famous for his unconventional Resurrection message especially maong the youth. He is famous in the last years not only in Greece.
A camera crew from Australia was present in the church this year and filmed the event.
