Today, we are deeply moved to be in West Virginia for the first time, and in this glorious Church of All Saints in Weirton. We note with great satisfaction that it was our ever-memorable predecessor on the Throne of Chrysostom, Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras, who laid the cornerstone of this Temple, when he was Archbishop of America, in the year of our Lord, 1947.
