Description

Engraved Serigraph with Virgin Mary Eleftherotria

An engraved serigraph with Virgin Mary Eleftherotria (Liberator) who took Her name during the period of the Byzantine Empire when She was recognized as Great General. That’s why it is established to celebrate at 1st of October that feast but for the Greek reality moved to another date so it can be celebrated with our national day at the 28th of October.

Virgin Mary is the Eleftherotria, which means the Liberator, not only from the visible enemies, who tried centuries ago to enslave the country. She is the liberator also from our internal enemies, our passions and our temptations. Virgin Mary is the liberator of our souls and bodies and of course the liberator of our nation. She is the liberator from anything that troubles us.
