I just listened to this podcast. Let me say that Patriarch John's words can best be described as pastoral and comforting. Met. Joseph's words were quite frank and informative. He doesn't speak around issues, but answers directly, which I appreciate. This is going to be a new direction for the Antiochian Archdiocese.
