“…we Christians are obliged to pray for our city and for its authorities regardless of whether we like them or not; whether they belong to the party we like or not. We must pray for our leaders who stand at the helm of state and public power. Of course, these people need enlightenment from God and Divine help to do good works for the good of the people and the country.”

(Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol, 6 talk on the Divine Liturgy)
