Exerpt from the speech of Mr. Nicholas Porphyrogenis given on the 13th May 1979 on being presented with a resolution voted by the Community Council of Agria.

" ... for Agria to acquire a model centre of spiritual development, a centre for social solidarity elevating the standard of life of the city, a centre for cultural expositions, which will project Agria as an enviable example for others to follow," because " The decay wrought by our materialistic age on moral values is so great that if the world is not to roll towards the chaos of anxiety and disaster, it is required of everyone, whatever his field, his country, his particular place of abode, to contribute to the conservation of spiritual values and to the elevation of humanity".
