“Σώπα, κυρία Δέσποινα, μην κλαίεις μην…”
But I can't keep quiet. No one has helped our Hagia Sophia. Just a few comments here and there. Helpless it surrendered to the mercy of this new plunder. Except that today's plunder is not about gold and silver. This plunder will take place deep inside its Soul. And in its Silence. In the deep Mystery hidden inside its aching guts. This Mystery that elevated it to a universal Symbol. But the civilised world Christian or not betrayed it once again. As it was betrayed back then. That time - when the pope left the martyred emperor helpless, canceling the promised - against the unifying liturgy of the filioque - assistance.
This uprising, which is now taking place over the pain of Hagia Sophia, should have taken place BEFORE its new vandalism. To prevent this new bloodshed. Because that's what it's all about. Only this time it will not show even a drop of blood. Deep in its bloodied soul this new abandonment by God and Men will be hidden. And the guilt of the Christian West will become a deeper wound - continued by the betrayal of the pope.
