LOL.  Think they will be talking about our little meeting today, and the EP's little meeting in June?
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Maybe they're just getting together to trade recipes.  I hear the MP makes killer Pelmeni.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

I am sure I have read somewhere that Metropolitan Jonah is visiting the Ecumenical Patriarch also on this trip abroad?   Magiritsa fans?  ;D

I had heard this too; similar to the new MP's "tour of Autocephalous Churches."
