Met. Pavlos' Trip to Greece 2013

On Wednesday evening, October 3/16, 2013, His Eminence, Metropolitan Pavlos of America, departed from New York for a ten-day visit to Greece.

This is the first time His Eminence has visited Greece since October 2005 when he presided over the proclamation of the sainthood of St. Pachomios of Chios (+1905).

His Eminence was present on Saturday, October 6/19, for the memorial service which was served for the ever-memorable Metropolitan Petros of Astoria (+1997) and Archimandrite Niphon (Astyphides)(+1994)in the Monastery of St. Menas in Anthousa, Attica. Metropolitan Petros and Archimandrite Niphon were Metropolitan Pavlos' spiritual fathers and grand-uncles.

On this same day the exhumation and transferal of the remains of Metropolitan Petros and Archimandrite Niphon also took place.

On Monday October 8/21, Metropolitan Pavlos visited the Convent of the All-Immaculate Virgin in Megara, which was founded by the late Archbishop Chrysostomos II (+ 2010). His Eminence served a memorial service at the grave of the Archbishop Chrysostomos.

He also visited the Convent of the Archangels in Corinth where His Beatitude Archbishop Kallinikos resides and where His Eminence was ordained to the episcopacy in 1998.

On Wednesday October 10/23, Metropolitan Pavlos took part in the regular Synod meeting under the presidency of His Beatitude Archbishop Kallinikos which took place in the hall of the church "The Unfading Rose" in Piraeus.

Hero-Worshipping: the Sickness of our Holy Struggle

“Trust ye not in princes, in the sons of men, in whom there is no salvation.”
