1. A miracle performed to a Turk forester.
This event was conveyed to me by elder Christodoulos, when I was at the Saint Onoufrios Seat and was helping father Ierotheos, who was a gardener, on June 12th, 1944. Father Christodoulos remembered this event, which took place during the Turkish occupation of Greece around 1910, and passed it on to honor the memory of Saint Onoufrios. read more… Διαβάστε τη συνέχεια του άρθρου »
]Dear U of U: You don’t have to be born in Greece to be a Greek.
By John Saltas
A couple of years ago, I and other family members traced our DNA through FamilyTree.com. My DNA—so that of my father, his Greek father and so on—tested into Haplogroup R1a1, meaning our Y chromosomes have been wandering around central Europe since at least the time of the last Ice Age. My mother’s Cretan father (tested via a male cousin born to my mother’s brother) was shown to be a member of Haplogroup J2. That group is found throughout the ancient seafaring regions of the eastern Mediterranean. Landing there perhaps thanks to the Phoenicians, J2 is prevalent on the island of Crete, and it dates at least to the Minoan era.
A FEW NOTES FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW:
1. ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND HIS TEACHER ARISTOTLE SPOKE HELLENIC. NOT ANY SLAVIC LANGUAGE.
2. THE MACEDONIAN CAPITAL WAS PELLA, NOT SKOPJE.
3. ALEXANDER’S SISTER WAS CALLED THESSALONIKI, NOT SOLUN LIKE THE SLAVS CALL IT.
SO, VARDARSKA IT IS.
WE’VE HAD ENOUGH WITH THIS JOKE.
