  • Description

    ON HIS WAY TO THE UNITED STATES, BENEDICTUS I, ORTHODOX PATRIARCH OF JERUSALEM, ARRIVED BY AIR IN ATHENS, SEPT 9, TO BE RECEIVED BY ARCHBISHOP THEOKLITUS AND BISHOP IACOVOS OF ATTICA.

    ALTHOUGH THE PATRIARCH'S VISIT WAS NOT REGARDED AS AN OFFICIAL ONE, GREEK ECCLESIASTICAL CIRCLES ATTACHED GREAT SIGNIFICANCE TO TALKS BETWEEN BENEDICTUS I AND LEADERS OF THE INDEPENDENT ORTHODOX CHURCH OF GREECE.

    THESE TALKS ARE EXPECTED TO ENABLE ORTHODOX CHURCHES OUTSIDE RUSSIA'S CONTROL TO ADOPT A COMMON POLICY AT THE PAN-ORTHODOX CONFERENCE, TO BE HELD IN RHODES FROM SEPT 24 TO OCT 1. THE CONFERENCE, WHERE ALL ORTHODOX CHURCHES WILL BE REPRESENTED, IS TO DISCUSS THEOLOGICAL AND OTHER PROBLEMS WHICH FACE ORTHODOXY TODAY.
