He was exceptional! Very articulate. Charlie Rose allowed him to explain how our Holy Church is organized on this Earth, along with the divisions in Christianity, and about dialogue among the other monotheistic religions, Judism and Islam. His All Holiness explained his visit to America, to continue the work toward environmental conservation; bless the faithful Orthodox Christians in America, meeting with the hierarchs of the American jurisdictions, and meeting with the American civil leadership. He was appropriately responsive to everything Charlie Rose asked him. He also explained the status of relations with the government of Turkey. I'm so very proud to have him representing our Faith to this broad audience. This was the longest I have ever heard him speak in one setting.
May God grant him continued health, inspiration, patience, and the stamina to continue along the path of his ministry for "Many Years."
