  1. What a great synaxis of bishops! Wish my Patriarch (John X of Antioch) had been there, really cool to see this pan-Orthodox communion.

    1. Well, come to think of it, maybe he wasn't, because of our tiff with Jerusalem. I take back everything I said :-p

    2. He was present in Moscow so here is your answer.

    3. Yes, Patriarch John X was most definitely there, as well as a Metropolitan of the Georgian Church, whose Patriarch's health didn't allow him to travel. He was here last year for Patriarch Kirill's 70th birthday, however.

    4. Patriarch John X is to the right if Patriarch Kirill here: https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_FtrdGWHBps/WiNythZ-NpI/AAAAAAABBEc/G53XesQQ-skxWkb2kEAzWgU2BWfgh7seQCLcBGAs/s1600/20171202-VAR_0690-%25D0%25BE%25D0%25B1%25D1%2580.jpg

    5. Actually, I take that back—I don't see him at the actual Liturgy. He was definitely in attendance at the Bishops' Council.

    6. Again, Patriarch John was in Moscow but he did not concelebrate that Liturgy because of that Qatar nonsense.
