Studies in Honour of Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia
Message from His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
to the Friends of Mount Athos Conference in Honour of His Excellency Metropolitan Kallistos, Madingley Hall, 6–8 February 2015
Beloved colleagues, students, and friends of Metropolitan Kallistos, Esteemed conference speakers and participants, Dear Friends of Mount Athos,
It is our sincere pleasure and privilege to respond to the gracious invitation of your Chairman, Dr Graham Speake, that we address a brief paternal message to the participants of the residential conference organized in honour of His Excellency Metropolitan Kallistos. We are delighted to do this through our Exarch in Great Britain, His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira.
There is no greater honour for a Church than to pay tribute to one of the most eminent hierarchs and prominent scholars of the Ecumenical Throne, who for many years has served as spiritual father, academic teacher, metropolitan bishop, monk, theologian, and author-translator. We understand that speakers will address the manifold virtues of Metropolitan Kallistos’s life and the diverse aspects of his work: the ‘one face’ and ‘many facets’ of the productivity and legacy of this respected leader of our Church.
