We have been blessed by the all-merciful God to serve the Holy and Great Church of Christ, to be heirs and trustees of its most sacred traditions, which we are obliged “without in the least swerving from our obligation” to hand down in all their integrity to future generations. Our power is spiritual; it is the imperishable strength of our Orthodox faith. To adopt the words of a faithful son (Constantine Vlachos) of the Church:

“Nurtured by its centuries-old tradition,

the Phanar ...

endures within walls that are not made by human hands – walls raised by the apostle-emperor and sponsor, successive emperors, a cloud of witnesses, and countless departed. It endures and creates; it survives and thrives; it consoles and guides the whole world; it provides depth and meaning to its history. It is assailed by its foolish children; yet it forgives and loves, entering everywhere that a door of communion opens. It radiates like a spiritual sun and attracts the respect of all churches and religions. When human resources are exhausted, then divine miracles unfold.”

–Excerpt taken from the homily delivered by His All-Holiness, on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary since His-All Holiness’ Election

P HOTO BY J. MINDALA

We offer glory to the good and sovereign Trinitarian God for the “great miracle” of the Great Church of Christ in this great City of Constantine.”

Religious leaders and digniatries from around the world offered congratulatory messages to His All-Holiness on the occasion of his 25th anniversary of enthronement as Ecumenical Patriarch. The following pages contain excerpts from several letters that were received and also quotes taken from the new biography Bartholomew: Apostle and Visionary.

Vice President Joe Biden ut what impressed me most is the way His All-Holiness embodies our Christian faith— thoroughly and completely. To put it simply, he is one of the most Christlike men I have ever met.”

I

have had the great honor of seeing Patriarch Bartholomew’s spiritual leadership for myself, and am inspired by his work on human rights, religious tolerance, and environmental protection. I send my best wishes to His All Holiness on this momentous milestone.

I

Chief of Staff Archon Reince Priebus am writing this letter to wish you a most sincere congratulations on your twenty-fifth anniversary as Ecumenical Patriarch. Your steadfast conviction to the Orthodox Church has set an example for Orthodox Christians around the world. As the Bible says, “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord” (Jeremiah 17:7). Recently, the members of all different religious groups have been plagued by violence, contempt, and divison. Your inter-religious dialogue, promotion of religious freedom and human rights for the last twenty-five years has provided members of the Christian faith with a steadfast vision of hope. The dedication you have shown in fighting against religious persecution, pushing for the reopening of the Halki Seminary, and the reconciliation among Christian Churches has promoted the Orthodox faith and has set an example that all humans, from world leaders to ordinary members of society, should strive to emulate. As an Archon of the Order of St. Andrew, I want to express my utmost gratitude for your service and dedication to the Orthodox Church. Your leadership is inspired myself and many others to defend and promote the Orthodox Christian faith and tradition. Again, I wish you congratulations and pray for many more years of success. Axios!

am pleased to join in paying tribute to His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, as he marks the 25th anniversary of his election as Ecumenical Patriarch. Guided by the teachings of his faith, His All-Holiness, Bartholomew, has long been a pillar of wisdom and enlightenment for people around the world. His work--whether promoting peace and reconciliation, standing for human rights and freedoms, supporting refugees, or encouraging us to be stewards of the one planet we share--has helped transcend divides that have set people apart throughout history. At the heart of his efforts lies a fundamental truth about our common humanity: that it is our sacred obligation to spend our time here on Earth working together to forge a brighter future for all--including for generations that have not yet come to be. I hope the years ahead bring continued blessings to Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew’s ministry, and I send all those marking this special milestone my very best wishes.

Patriarch Daniel of Romania our Holiness’ personality and intense activity, both in ecclesiastical and in other spheres of life is well known and appreciated in the whole of the Orthodox Church and also respected throughout the rest of the Christendom and in the world at large. Thus, throughout your entire service as Ecumenical Patriarch, Your Holiness have constantly promoted the role and place of each sister Orthodox Church in strengthening and deepening the panorthodox unity and in assuming responsibility towards solving humanitarian crises within the contemporary society, through specific assistance.

W

Patriarch Ilia of Georgia

e wholeheartedly congratulate you on the 25th anniversary of your enthronement. In our era of controversies, it is an arduous labour to bear the Cross of the foremost hierarch; the Patriarchate of Constantinople has always been the arena of universal interests and spiritual battles; therefore the Lord has bestowed upon you a heavy and honourable mission. The Church of Georgia has many times had your support, love and respect. We trust your wisdom and thoughtfulness and hope that, despite the existing problems, you will be the person to advocate peace and unity among the Orthodox Churches.

A

quarter of a century ago the Lord of peace, Who has a wise dispensation towards His Church, laid on your shoulders a laborious cross of Patriarchal ministry. You were elected to the see, which is covered with the imperishable glory of the great teachers and saints: John Chrysostom, Gregory the Theologian and other holy fathers pleasing unto the Lord. Finding inspiration in “the good fight of faith” (1 Tim 6:12), fought by your blessed predecessors, and bearing in mind all the afflictions and hardships that they suffered, you carry out your Primatial ministry and overcome various temptations, taking a zealous care of the good of the Church and being firm in your trust in God. During your decades-long Primatial ministry, you have been bearing an active witness to the Orthodox faith in the non-Christian milieu, making considerable efforts aimed at promoting peace and accord among the nations, and zealously defending the human life, the environment and the whole creation of God. Such manifold activities of the Holy Church of Constantinople have received recognition both in the Christian world and beyond, thanks to, among other things, the talents that God granted to you in abundance and that you strive to cultivate.

ringing to the office a profound spiritual maturity and theological sophistication, His All-Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew has shown how a hierarchical office that is without most of the conventional trappings of executive power can act as a means of theological witness, a potent sign, an office that holds up before the world (Orthodox and non-Orthodox) the central vision of faith … in the crucified and glorified Word of God


My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in

God my Savior; for He has regarded the low estate of His servant, whom He called to guide the spiritual vessel of the Great Church at this crucial moment in history, deeming him worthy today of completing a quarter of a century on the Throne of the First-Called Apostle Andrew and his successor Stachys, as well as numerous Saints and Peers of the Apostles that served as First-Hierarchs of this Church.”

Governor Cuomo, a strong advocate for religious freedom for the Ecumenical Patriarchate, was the instrumental person in the process of securing the agreement with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey regarding the rebuilding and resurrection of Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center.

at the 9/11 Memorial." In his response, Governor Cuomo said, "When Archbishop Demetrios spoke about St. Nicholas, I heard Archbishop Iakovos' voice, I heard my father's voice. I heard them saying what better place than 9-11 to have a monument, a sanctuary that says we are all one people and all are invited to one, holy place. St. Nicholas is going to be the only Church on Ground Zero with a beautiful history, there since 1916, one of the first places that the Greek immigrants would visit. The first touch stone, they would land on Ellis Island and they would take a ferry over and St. Nicholas was right there downtown so they could get off that boat and they could step into a Church where they felt comfortable and they felt reassured with the peace of

home. A beautiful history, but also a beautiful future." The Governor continued, "Because the new St. Nicholas is going to be bigger and better than ever. Saying on the side of 9 -11, the side of the greatest hate, I offer you love. That's what St. Nicholas is going to say, because love is better than hate. I offer you inclusion, because inclusion is better than exclusion. I offer you good, because good defeats evil. And I give you a place of holiness and beauty to say, 'we are one and let us come together and focus on our similarities and let's disregard our differences'. That is St. Nicholas. That's why Archbishop Demetrios stayed on this project with his quiet persistence year after year, after year. That's why the State of New York made a terrible mistake for all those years where they didn't honor their

original agreement to build St. Nicholas. And that's why as Governor of the State of New York, one of a handful of beautiful accomplishments that I'll have for the rest of my life, is being able to visit that new St. Nicholas. Knowing what it stands for. Knowing who built it. Knowing what it means to the Greeks. Knowing what it means to the world. I ask for one thing: In one corner, a little picture of two great friends, two great men who always believed we could be better than we are--Archbishop Iakovos and Mario Cuomo." Archon Michael G.

PATRIARCHAL NEWS

Religious leaders praise Ecumenical Patriarch as a great ecumenist By Junno Arocho, Esteves Catholic News Service ASSISI –As leaders of dozens of religions gathered in Assisi for dialogue and prayers for peace, they honored Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bar tholomew of Constantinople as an exemplar of one who is so deeply rooted in his own religious tradition that he can reach out to others without fear. Jewish, Anglican and Catholic leaders paid tribute to Patriarch Bartholomew as he was about to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his enthronement as spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians. Pope Francis was scheduled to participate in a celebratory luncheon for the patriarch Sept. 20 in Assisi. The Assisi celebrations Sept. 18-20 were organized by the Rome-based Community of Sant'Egidio, the Diocese of Assisi and the Franciscan friars. In a formal meeting hall at the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi Sept. 19, the leaders praised Patriarch Bartholomew

as an ecumenist, theologian and leading religious defender of God's creation. Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury presided over the tribute to the patriarch, and Cardinal Walter Kasper, former president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, gave the main talk, highlighting how "with great tact in difficult situations" the patriarch "always helped to overcome complicated twists and turns with the grand dexterity of a 'pontiff,' that is, a builder of bridges." "Like you," Cardinal Kasper told the patriarch, "we are certain that unity is a command of the Lord and a response to the signs of the times in a world that is increasingly united, but at the same time profoundly lacerated by many conflicts." The unity Christians hope and pray for, he said, will not be the result of "any absorption, or watering down or homogenization, but a unity in reconciled diversity."

Rabbi David Rosen, international director of interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee, told participants, "There is an understandable but re gret table te nde ncy among those who are deeply rooted in a religious tradition to be insular and exclusive in their world outlook. While on the other hand, all too often those who are more open to engagement with those different from themselves reflect a superficiality lacking substance." The biblical model of excellence, though, is of "a luxuriant tree," the rabbi said. It is the image of "one profoundly rooted within his own heritage and yet whose branches reach out as widely as possible providing fruit for all." Saying that Patriarch Bartholomew is such a man, Rabbi Rosen praised the patriarch's leadership in condemning all violence in the name of religion and in addressing the issue of climate change and care for creation. "His leadership in the en-

Commemorative biography issued on the accomplishments of His All-Holiness NEW YORK– Bartholomew: Apostle and Visionary is the first-ever detailed biography of one of the world’s foremost Christian leaders, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who oversees the Orthodox Church, which boasts 300 million members worldwide. In one of the most remarkable tenures of the patriarchate, it has been more than twenty-five years since Bartholomew first accepted this ministerial position, which is considered “first among equals” of all Orthodox leaders around the world.

The biography authored by John Chryssavgis, is officially sanctioned and supported by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America with unfettered access to church files, Bartholomew’s personal notes, and the patriarch himself. For the first time in Vatican history, the book includes a foreword by the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis as well as a contribution by Pope emeritus Benedict XVI and other heartfelt contributions from world dignitaries, influencers, and religious leaders. 

vironmental movement, long before it became fashionable, is a reflection of his sincere and genuine care for the cosmos as a whole," he said. Saying he was humbled by the tributes, Patriarch Bartholomew jokingly told the crowd present, "Don't believe everything you hear!" The patriarch said that while he was touched by the words of those he has collaborated with and admired, his work "resembles only a drop of water in an ocean of human pain and global suffering." "We do not rejoice without at the same time recalling and sharing in the suffering of others. And, at the Ecumenical Patriarchate, we cer tainly never experience joy without remembering that we embody a tradition that has known both glory and martyrdom through the ages," he said. The celebration serves only as an affirmation "that the bishop, too, is a child of God and a son of the church," the patriarch said. 

Order of Saint Andrew congratulates Archon Reince Hercules Priebus on his selection as White House Chief of Staff

PHOTOS BY J. MINDALA

WASHINGTON D.C. – President-elect Donald Trump has named Archon Reince Priebus, an Orthodox Christian, as his White House chief of staff come January 2017. Archon Priebus has served as state treasurer and Republican party chairman in Wisconsin, and took up the post of Republican National Convention chairman in 2011, becoming a loyal Trump campaign adviser and helping to garner broad support that led to his victory. Invested in 2011, Archon Priebus is currently an active member of St. Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Catheral in D.C. Learning of his appointment, National Commander Limberakis issued the following statement: It is with a great sense of filial pride and joy that the Order of Saint Andrew congratulates Brother Archon Reince Hercules Priebus on his selection by President-elect Donald J. Trump to be the White House Chief of Staff. Archon Reince is known for his devotion to our Holy Orthodox Faith and his patriotism, and reflective of this he keeps on his office lectern The Holy Bible, a copy of the Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom and of course, as former Chairman of the Republican Party, a copy of the Republican Party Platform. We are most proud of Archon Reince as he assumes extraordinary responsibility in assisting President-elect Trump in the governance of our beloved nation. May our Triune God grant Archon Reince the wisdom of Socrates and Solomon, the patience of Job and the strength of Hercules blessed with "Every Perfect Gift from Above." 

The White House Chief of Staff is the highest ranking employee of the White House. The position is a modern successor to the earlier role of the president's private secretary. The role was formalized as the assistant to the president in 1946 and acquired its current name in 1961.
