Today, this auspicious and joy-filled day, I have the privilege to represent our Spiritual Father, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew – in whose sacred presence we were graced these last days, for the purpose of receiving an extraordinary example of Christian love and responsibility. For today, the Holy Book of the Gospels, the manuscript once known as Kosinitza Manuscript 220, is being returned to its Monastic Home and Sanctuary.
