“When the jews withdraw their money”

That is what we read, a few years ago, of how an Athonite Elder described the moment when the prophecies of Elder Paisios (and other Athonite elders) would start to unfold. He said that when this moment comes, most of Greece would become unemployed overnight. That day may be nigh.
