Dimitris Karavasilis was born and grew up in Imvros, Turkey. He attended the Turkish primary school, while at the same time secretly learning the basic Greek language. Forced to emigrate, he settled in Greece. He went on to study both Theology and Greek Literature at the University of Athens, where he also attended post-graduate classes in the field of Comparative Paedagogics. He has been a radio producer at the local ecclesiastical radio station of the Metropolis of Pereus for 23 years. He still teaches religion and ethics at the High School level.
After the Epiphany we should consider our own gifts that the Holy Spirit granted to us at our Baptism. Then we should find the right ways to make good use of them in our Lord’s name.
Τα χαρίσματα του βαπτίσματός μας
Μετά την βάπτιση του Κυρίου, οφείλουμε να αναλογιστούμε για τα χαρίσματα του δικού μας βαπτίσματος και με ποιους τρόπους μπορούμε να τα αξιοποιήσουμε εν Αγίω Πνεύματι, ώστε να γίνουμε γνήσια και άξια μέλη της Εκκλησίας
