Message from Archbishop Elpidophoros for the reopening of Halki seminary at the inauguration of the Turkish Center

In other languages: ELBG

An unequivocal message to Turkey was sent yesterday by Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, who was present at the opening of the Turkish Center in New York, with the key presence of the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Gutierrez.

The inauguration was held in the presence of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Archbishop of America, in a post on social media, noted his insistence on highlighting the growing importance of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in the reopening of the Halki Theological School and in supporting the rights of religious minorities in Turkey.

As pointed out by circles with a deep knowledge of world reality, the Archbishop of America is the person who methodically and strategically internationalized the issue of the reopening of the Theological School of Halki during his tenure as abbot of the Holy Monastery of the Holy Trinity, but also the person which highlighted worldwide the conversion of Hagia Sophia, in Constantinople, and the Monastery of Chora into an Islamic Mosque. As they noted, “deeds always stand against screams”.
