Catechetical Homlily on the Occasion of Holy and Great Lent (2016)

† B A R T H O L O M E W

BY THE MERCY OF GOD ARCHBISHOP OF CONSTANTINOPLE, NEW-ROME, AND ECUMENICAL PATRIARCH, 
TO THE PLENITUDE OF THE CHURCH, _GRACE AND PEACE
FROM OUR SAVIOR CHRIST, 
TOGETHER WITH OUR PRAYER, BLESSING AND FORGIVENESS

Beloved and blessed brethren and children in the Lord,

Lenten Message 2016 from + John, Bishop of Charioupolis, Patriarchal Vicar and Locum tenens

This year again, the beginning of the Great Fast is overshadowed by the dark clouds piling up over the head of humanity. Wars with all the accompanying human tragedies which they cause, pollution of nature, upheaval in the Middle East where we cannot yet understand either causes and outcome or the suffering of poor nations faced with the increasing gulf between North and South. The common man, for such we are, confronted with such an apocalyptic scenario, feels as weak as the grass of the  fields.

Encyclical from The Ecumenical Patriarch on the feast of the Nativity

By the mercy of God, Archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome and Ecumenical Patriarch: grace, mercy, and peace to all the fullness of the Church from Christ, the Saviour born in Bethlehem.

Brethren and beloved children in the Lord,

Pastoral message from the locum-tenens, his Eminence John, bishop of Charioupolis
