Dear Reverend Clergy and Brethren in Christ,

It was a great credit to Sacred Heart Major Seminary (where I work) to host such a meaningful event by inviting the renowned Orthodox theologian Metropolitan Kallistos Ware here to speak to our seminarians and faithful. That His Grace was invited -and that he accepted- both speak volumes of the real ecumenical commitments of the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church. I think it gave many of us an opportunity to learn in order to help us be channels for understanding and unity wherever we go. Our Seminary is truly fulfilling the ecumenical vision of Blessed Pope John Paul II for the Church and I want to thank His Excellency Archbishop Vigneron and the Rector of SHMS, Monsignor Monforton, for encouraging this event.
If anyone is interested in downloading His Grace’s talk, it is available at the following link (copied below) for a short time. It doesn’t have the best sound quality but if you are in a quiet location, you can make it out pretty well. In any event it may be a nice keepsake.

As we invoke the intercession of the All-Holy Theotokos for Church unity in the Armenian Church tradition:

“Pray for us to God Who was incarnate through thee / that He may make of one accord His holy Church built on the foundation of apostles and prophets / and may preserve her spotless until the day when He will appear at His coming; we beseech thee:

-Holy Mother, intercede for us.”

Trusting in Christ's Inextinguishable Light,
-Deacon Lazarus

Thank you very much, my brother, for posting this.

Many years,

Does anyone know if this talk is available anywhere on the net? I did a Google search and could not find it.
