Aside from the sun and the sea, the hospitable people and the ancient monuments, our homeland, Greece, has been blessed with yet another treasure : an even more beautiful and far more precious one.
We Greeks share this treasure, with millions of people all over the world and it is our gift to our Chinese brethren as well - especially those who live in our country or who have chosen it as the place to have their wedding.
This treasure is the ancient and authentic form of Christianity. It is the faith that Jesus Christ Himself had taught; it is the Church that He had founded - the Church that has not ceased to exist and continues to bring man into communion with God, throughout the ages.
We refer to it as the Orthodox Church.
It has been the faith of the Greeks for almost 2000 years, but it is also the faith of many other peoples; it even has faithful and Saints, in the heart of China.
This faith is what we cherish most of all, and it is our heartfelt desire to share it with all the world.
After all, Jesus Christ belongs to all the world.
