This chapter recounts the encounter of Attorney Dimitris Vogazlis—a resident of Greece who came from Bulgaria—with an elderly Bulgarian minister of the Mother of God Church. Since the repeated clashes between the local Greeks and the Bulgarian refugees had prevented people from coming to church—even on Sundays—the minister was pleased with Vogazlis' visit and bestowed the protection of the Mother of God unto him and his wife. The two also had a conversation about the conditions of their nations. The kindly encounter between the Bulgarian priest and the Greek communal leader depicted a cordial relation between the two ethnic groups during the interwar period. The conversation of the two during their encounter also revealed the importance of local dynamics, social expectations, and communal practices in the interactions between Bulgarians and Greeks.

Keywords:   Dimitris Vogazlis, Mother of God Church, Bulgarian priest, Greek communal leader, Bulgarians, Greeks
