Four-day visit and talks…

The spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios (left), arrived in Greece yesterday for a four-day visit and talks with Archbishop Ieronymos (right). ‘In your venerable person, we have always discerned the good shepherd, the honest servant of the Church, the eminent theologist and scientist, the open-minded individual,’ Ieronymos told the visiting patriarch. Vartholomaios is also scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and President Karolos Papoulias.
