A Greek Actor Who Visited Mount Athos and Had a Life Changing Experience

January 14, 2014

Well known Greek actor Yannis Aivazis strongly believes in God. Has his faith helped him?

"I used to say that religion is a human need to give a path for life, without doing harm to those around them. The first time I went to Mount Athos, I was suspicious. When I met my elder and he asked me to confess, I found myself crying for five minutes without realizing," he said to EGO.

Did he cry out of guilt?

"I don't know. I can't explain it."

Did he revise things in his life?

"When I returned from Mount Athos, it created a tense situation at home between me and Maria. I haven't spoken of this before. I returned and I was a totally different Yannis. Maria was afraid she would lose me. I became very calm. There were people who did not treat me well, and instead of getting irritated - as I used to get - I would say 'never mind, may it be blessed'."
