• Homily of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros for the Fourth Sunday of Lent

    We are still in a period of tremendous restriction, all for the sake of the health of our fellow citizens and our own health as well. My hope is that we will seize the opportunity that is literally being forced upon us, to become more altruistic, more compassionate toward others, more patient, and indeed more faithful. Read More

    Homily for the Sunday of Orthodoxy - March 8, 2020

    Yes, we differ in jurisdiction; we differ in ethnic background; we differ in native language; we differ in customs. But the Faith that we confess is in the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church! We believe and we confess the same Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed. We share in the Same Eucharistic Meal – the Mystical Supper of the Lord. And we all look forward to the Same Glorious Resurrection of our God in His Holy Pascha. Read More

    Homily on Sunday of Meatfare, St Mark G. O. C., Boca Raton, Fla.

    Today, we hear, in the most glaring terms, the same message from our Lord Jesus Christ in the reading from the Gospel. Chosen for this Sunday of Meatfare,[†] when in the tradition of the Church this is the last day that animal flesh is supposed to be eaten until the Sunday of Pascha, there is not a single word about fasting in today’s reading. That should be a clue for all of us. But there is even more. Read More

    L100 Grand Banquet Address, Feb. 22, 2020

    I am truly moved as we close out this 29th Annual Conference, and although I do not know whether I will see twenty-nine more … these past few days make me hope that I do. This celebration of love, of fellowship, and of faith is deeply inspiring to me, even as I mentioned yesterday at the General Assembly. Your commitment to the Ministry of the Church, and your joyful life together as Leadership 100 have given me some much-needed refreshment. It is my prayer that as we go forward together – even as we have for the sake of the Saint Nicholas Shrine at the World Trade Center, that we will always find common ground around the work of Christ and His Holy Church.

    Archbishop Elpidophoros’ Greeting to L100 Executive Committee, February 19, 2020

    I am delighted to be here with you this week for my first Leadership 100 Annual Conference. As always, the Abrahamic arrangements, the essence of Greek philoxenia, have been made at the highest level, worthy of the memory of Archbishop Iakovos whose vision, together with your Founders, created this Endowment that bears his name. I want to especially thank the Chairman, Argyris Vassiliou, and the Executive Director, Paulette Poulos, for all of their attentiveness and hospitality. Read More
