______________________________

On Tuesday, Archbishop Ieronymos Liapis, the First Hierarch of the Church of Greece, joined the debate over whether retail stores should open on Sunday. The government put to public consultation a draft law that’d allow some stores to open on Sundays. Archbishop Ieronymos expressed concern about the plans, saying, “We’re constantly focused on numbers and we forget our souls. When will traders see their children, when will they see their families, when will they rest and gather strength?” Ieronymos spoke to journalists after holding a meeting with Minister of Labour, Social Security, and Welfare  Yiannis Vroutsis to discuss the Church’s social work.
