I love you Papa. You are a theologen who is well rounded in art, liteature and history. I have had the joy of reading about you over the last few years especially concerning your leadership in trying to bring unity with the Russian Orthodox Church. My wife is Russian Orthodox. I am a Melkite Catholic. Her church will not allow me to receive communion. My church allows her to receive communion. Hopefully you will be able to continue to heal this sad division.
You are in my prayers,
Paul Christopher Abood
