    Archbishop's Greeting at OCMC - Feb 8, 2020

    Thank you for this warm welcome and luncheon here at the Mission Center, which was a unique gift to all Orthodox Christians in America by my ever-memorable predecessor, Archbishop Iakovos. He had the vision and the confidence to give this ministry of love as gift to the entire Church, for it is love that drives your apostolate. It is the love for every person on earth under heaven that impels us to bring the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ to every creature. It is love that is the basis of our missionary enterprise, because we are inspired to give the gift of the knowledge of God from the abundance of our own blessings, and the surfeit of the grace that we have known in our lives.
