I took this video when I was in Constantinople the week of the Annunciation. Patriarch Bartholomew made this address the night of the Annunciation at St. Demetrius Church (near the city walls & along the Golden Horn).

I need a translation of this address, or at least a summarization of the address.

Patriarch Bartholomew handed out icons of the "Panagia of the Salutations" after the service. Tradition holds that this icon was the same icon that was processed around the walls of Constantinople during the siege by the Turks, and it kept them at bay.
I realized that this must have been very symbolic, since we were at St. Demetrius Church, we were only 1/4 mile from the city walls.

I don't know if this will help, but I hope so- it's from the website of the Patriarchate.

He describes the place where the church of St. Demetrios of Xyloporta (is that the church in this video? wow) is located:
-Next to the Byzantine Theodosian wall
-Built at the suburb of Blachernae near to the imperial palace of Constantine Porphyrogenetus
He then gives a general idea of how unsuccesful was the restoration and gentrification attempt, with UNESCO money, by the Turkish government that almost destroyed the Byzantine wall by the Bosphorus and the Sumela monastery in Pontus.
He also thanks and blesses the visitors from Greece especially the youngsters, "who like the martlets, bring spring with them when they visit the Patriarchate", and give strength to him and to the few remaining Orthodox of Constantinople.
He finishes by wishing that Greece will overcome the financial crisis. He then calls up a couple of (Theology?) professors to say a few words.
That's a brief summary.
