Η Αγία Ζώνη της Θεοτόκου από το Άγιο Όρος στη Χίο

ΣΕΛΙΔΕΣ ΧΙΑΚΗΣ ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑΣ

Η έξοδος από το Άγιο Όρος ιερών λειψάνων και κειμηλίων και η περιφορά τους στον ορθόδοξο λαό για προσκύνηση αποτελεί μακραίωνη παράδοση. Ιδιαίτερα μάλιστα σε περιπτώσεις επιδημιών, σεισμών και άλλων συμφορών, κατόπιν παρακλήσεως του ευσεβούς λαού, μεταφέρονται στις περιοχές που επλήγησαν προς αγιασμό και προστασία. 0 ελληνικός λαός, έχοντας βαθιά ριζωμένο το θρησκευτικό συναίσθημα, συρρέει κατά χιλιάδες στους ναούς για να προσκυνήσει με ευλάβεια και κατάνυξη τα ιερά και θαυματουργά κειμήλια του Αγίου Όρους. Επίσης, πολλές φορές περιφέρονται σε πόλεις της Ελλάδος καθώς και σε άλλες ορθόδοξες χώρες, προκειμένου να συγκεντρωθούν χρήματα για τη συντήρηση των Μοναστηριών. Το πανάρχαιο αυτό έθιμο αποκαλείται «ζητείες» και πρέπει να σημειωθεί ότι χάρη σ’αυτές κατόρθωσαν να επιβιώσουν οι Μονές του Αγίου Όρους κατά τα ζοφερά χρόνια της Τουρκοκρατίας.
