Dear Brother Archons of the Great Church of Christ,
Today on this Feastday of the Patron Saint of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, Saint Andrew the First-Called Apostle our thoughts and prayers are with our worldwide spiritual father, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew whose extraordinary martyria and diakonia serve to continuously inspire the Archons of America under the leadership of His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to seek the unfettered and complete religious freedom of the Mother Church.
We pray that Saint Andrew the First-Called Apostle of our Lord and Savior intercede at the Throne of God for the good health, strength and wisdom of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, our venerable Metropolitans of the Eparchial Synod, Archon Spiritual Advisor Fr. Alexander Karloutsos and our respected parish clergy throughout America, as well as for each Archon of the Great Church of Christ, and his beloved family.
In the Service of the Ecumenical Patriarchate,
Anthony J. Limberakis, MD
