A flood of communiques from the Council in Crete

It's interesting to see how many texts of speeches, homilies, and even toasts are being released to the public in recent hours. The sheer number of them makes it impossible to have not written some or all of these in advance. As such, some of the statements read oddly in light of recent events. For example from the "Homily by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew Chairman of the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church at the Concelebration of the Divine Liturgy in the Metropolitan Church of St. Minas in Heraklion, Crete With Their Beatitudes ​the Primates of the Holy Orthodox Churches" we read the following:

"Brothers, fathers and children, today the totality of our Holy Orthodox Church is represented here in Crete: “we have seen the true light; we have received the heavenly Spirit; we have found the true faith, worshipping the undivided Trinity, for the Trinity has saved us..."
God willing one day our Church will truly meet together in unity. With all Pentecostal fervor I pray that day is soon.


  1. When pompous, vote-grubbing politicians talk that way, it is called "blather."

    This is Bart-Blather.
