This is a heartbreaking and inspiring video recording from the service of Salutations to the Most Holy Theotokos at the Church of Saint Isidore in Athens, Greece. Fr. Demetrios Loupasakis reads the Akathist Hymn during a strict Covid-19 lockdown across Greece and in the Athens region. The Akathist Hymn is a profound, devotional poem or chant, which sings the praises of the Holy Mother and Ever-Virgin Mary (Theotokos).
