Where Christmas is Annually Celebrated in a Cave

Like every year, His Eminence Metropolitan Amphilochios of Kisamos and Selinon presided over the Christmas Divine Liturgy, on Christmas Eve, in the Cave of St. John the Hermit in Marathokefala, Kisamos. The fires, shepherds, animals and the natural surroundings of the Holy Cave, as well as the Byzantine splendor of the shrine, affect the souls of thousands who came to worship and mentally travel to the Holy City of Bethlehem, where Christ our Savior was incarnated.
