Primate of the Albanian Church – to the UOC: I am sure you will win
Metropolitan Anthony spoke about his meeting with the Primate of the Albanian Church, Archbishop Anastasios.
In an interview with the UOJ, Metropolitan Anthony of Boryspil and Brovary, Metropolitan of the UOC, spoke about a recent meeting with the Primate of the Albanian Orthodox Church, Archbishop Anastasios, one of the most prominent theologians in the field of missiology.
“At the end of our meeting, he said these words to me, 'Vladyka, I see how you (he meant our Church) are enduring these difficulties, with what hope in God, with peace in your soul, without aggression.' And then he added, 'I know the history a little. And I’m sure you will win',” Archbishop Anastasios was quoted by the UOC Chancellor.
These words, says Metropolitan Anthony, may sound like the leitmotif of what is happening in Ukraine now: the Church of Christ wins in humility, in patience. And this is Her strength.
Earlier, the UOJ wrote that, in the opinion of the Albanian Primate, the creation of the OCU did not bring either peace or unity.
