A METROPOLITAN FROM THE PATRIARCHATE OF ALEXANDRIA VISITS THE PATRIARCHATE
On Monday afternoon, May 3/16, 2022, His Eminence Metropolitan Theodoros of Helioupolis from the Patriarchate of Alexandria visited the Patriarchate, as the spiritual guide of Greek-Orthodox pilgrims.
His Eminence was warmly received by H.H.B. our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos and Hagiotaphite Fathers.
At this visit, His Beatitude and His Eminence “remembered days of old” when the Metropolitan of Helioupolis used to visit the Patriarchate as Archimandrite Theodoros (Demetriou) and companion of his blessed Geronda, the Metropolitan Theodoros (Tzedakis) of Lambis and Sfakion, along with the Archimandrite Theodoros Horeutakis, who is now the Patriarch of Alexandria, as members of an association that the blessed Metropolitan Theodoros (Tzedakis) had established with the name The Holy Shrines. At that time, His Beatitude the Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos was the Hegoumen of the Shrine in Cana.
His Beatitude offered His Eminence for this visit an Episcopal engolpion and icons of the Theotokos and the Sacred Edicule of the Holy Sepulchre.
