I would like to begin by thanking the Archons of the Order of Saint Andrew, who have so generously sponsored tonight’s gathering. I also want to thank you for your generosity to my humble person by this precious gift. The support of the Archons to my personal ministry and the greater ministry of our Holy Mother Church is deeply moving. As Archons, you are leaders within our spiritual Γένος, the international community of Orthodox Christians who identify as children of the Ecumenical Throne.
