A Word from His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
June 30, 2009
"We must always draw life from the liturgy of our Church; and at the same time, we cannot forget to respond to the needs of our neighbour, especially during these difficult times in our world. The Church becomes the Church when it identifies with the most vulnerable."
From the letter of greeting of His All-Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to the 21st Diocesan Sobor/Council of the Carpatho-Russian diocese, July 1st 2009
