Bishop Joseph visits Armenian Diocese
« on: January 18, 2009, 01:03:07 AM »
I heard it was a nice visit:

http://www.armenianchurchwd.com/bishop-joseph-of-the-self-ruled-antiochian-orthodox-christian-archdiocese-in-america-visited-the-diocese/

His Grace Bishop Joseph who oversees the Diocese of Los Angeles and the West, part of the Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese in America, paid a cordial visit to His Eminence Archbishop Hovnan Derderian, Primate, on January 9, 2009, at the Diocesan Headquarters, in Burbank, California. The Diocese of Los Angeles is led by His Grace Bishop Joseph and includes more than 30 churches and missions in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah.

The meeting was aimed at improving the relationship between the two churches in the region. The Primate and the high-ranking guest clergy toured the premises of the Diocese upon the conclusion of their discussions.

I'm happy to read things of this sort still happen, if our hierarchs and even the laity just make the effort.  Reconciliation, if it is possible, with our Oriental brethren should be a much higher priortiy than talking of reconciliation with the RCs and Protestants. 

God grant both hierarchs many years!
