His Eminence, the Metropolitan of Larissa and Tyrnavos Ignatius, inaugurated, on Sunday, December 12th, 2010 the chapel built by the entrepreneur Evangelos Kourtis, in the new, large facilities of 'KOURTIS-Prefabricated houses' construction company.
Christos Papanikolaou, the painter, created a unique, artistic installation in the small church, integrating elements from the monumental Byzantine painting and creating entities expressed through new materials, such as metal and plexiglass, using the linear shading technique in monochromy.
Mr. Evangelos Kourtis, when addressing His Eminence and guests, stated among other things the following:
'There comes a time in our life, when we feel that we are more unimportant than the grains of sand; when we feel as if we wander in this world without purpose or something to hold us. And there also comes a time when we feel that everything around us falls apart; that we keep sinking deeper and deeper in what seems like a bottomless pit.
The only support we have in these hard times, the only hope, the only light lighting the horizon of our soul is the Great Father, our God, the ultimate Word speaking about love and the Kingdom of Heaven. His presence has offered us two unshakeable axes: the first one is love; love that helps us understand those surrounding us and tolerate human behaviour. The second one is the Kingdom of Heaven, the only answer to the tormenting question about whether life ends with death.
These thoughts were the reason that led me, upon completion of our premises in this site, to attempt and build this small church, this space that, despite its small size, can fit all our prayers asking God to support us in every step we take. I believe that we cannot do things only to satisfy our material needs and do not do what finally is the essence of life and the redemption of our soul: a prayer to the God; a prayer inside His Home.
Having full awareness of my triviality, I kneel before the great miracle of our Lord's birth and peace comes in my soul before His Death. These moments are the very beginning of our trip to eternity and each one of us may choose the approach dictated by their hearts. I also say that it is with fear of God that we touch upon the mystery of life, having no other way and means to lead us. This is the absolute context where our steps meet the truth and the essence of life.
In this small church, I have laid my prayers asking for the mercy of the Merciful God. And I also asked the intervention of my friend, Christos Papanikolaou, in order to highlight the elements that connect us to our religious tradition.
Today I express my joy for the combination that we see in this installation: on one hand the monumental Byzantine painting, integrating the brand new proposal of my dear friend, Christos, based on the linear shading technique in monochromy and on the other, the use of cold materials, both old and new, such as metal and plexiglass. I thank him from the heart and express my gratitude before his talent and goodwill'.
