Yesterday, I was with the brothers in Sacramento, and was very impressed by their dedication and enthusiasm for our season of preparation for Holy Pascha. Today, I have the pleasure to be her with you – the Bay Area clergy. But allow me to say this about your beloved Metropolitan Gerasimos. His Eminence is a pastor’s pastor. His love for all of you, his devotion to serving your needs, and his constant desire to be of help to his clergy, is very moving for me to behold.
