Holy Father appointed Msgr. Dimitrios Salachas of the clergy of the apostolic exarchate for Greek Catholics of Byzantine Rite, Greece, as apostolic exarch of the same exarchate (Catholics 2,300, priests 10, religious 14). The bishop-elect was born in Athens, Greece in 1939 and ordained a priest in 1964. He succeeds Bishop Anarghyros Printesis, whose resignation from the pastoral care of the same exarchate the Holy Father accepted, in accordance with canon 210 para. 1 of the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches.

God grant him Many years

On the one hand, I'm agreeably surprised that the Pope appointed a new bishop for the Athens Exarchate without a struggle - the last time it was incredible, even though we did, thank God, succeed in obtaining the appointment.

On the other hand, the Bishop-Designate was born in 1939. How "Many Years" can he have before the 75-year cut-off date (which is selectively enforced) and we shall have another crisis?

Is this the same Dimitri Salachas who is listed as an adjunct professor at the Pontifical Oriental Institute?

Fr Serge, as usual, you crack me up. (To use a picturesque American expression, which may not translate very well into Irish parlance.)

Dear Father Deacon,

Yes, you are right, new bishop for Greece is a member of the Faculty of Eastern Canon Law of the pontifical Oriental Institute.

Dear Father David,

Thanks for the compliment! I can cope with American English fairly well ("Valley Girl Slang" is another matter).

God grant you a blessed finish to Holy Week, and a most glorious Pascha.

fraternally yours in Christ,

Fr. Serge

I think that Father Serge will get it--he is a New Yorker by birth, so, as a fellow New Yorker, I can vouch for him understanding it!

I have heard him use, on occasion, expressions which I have only heard my mother (another born and bred New Yorker) use. smile

Regards,
Alice

P.S. I agree with you--this was VERY funny!

I know personally the elected bishop (two years ago we celebrated Easter toguether) and I consider that his helth is very good for the moment, so I hope that he will, with the help of God, serve our Exarchy in Greece for many years. Many in the Greek Exarchy thought that Sevasmiotatos Anargyros would be the last Byzantine-rite bishop in Greece, but fortunately Pope Benedict XVI considers precious the presence in Greece of a Christian community in communion with the Holy Roman See that want to live their faith as Greek-Romioi and not as Fancolevantine-Latins. Congratulations one more time to our Holy Father.

It seems that the cheirotonia of the new Bishop-Elect is set for the weekend of the 25th of this month. Wish I could be there, but it's out of the question, alas.

Dear Alice,

I'm looking forward to a good schmooz in authentic New Yorkese with you! [The Yiddish element in authentic New Yorkese is quite strong.]

...Indeed! One cannot be a true New Yorker if one does not know how to express oneself at certain times in Yiddish words which have no other substitutes that fit the bill quite the same way!

Alice, who was schlepping all over town today, and is happy to finally have a moment to relax! wink

Or, as my Jewish friends might wish him in Yiddish - 'may he live to celebrate Tishubob' - a legendary Jewish Holyday once explained to me by a Rebe friend of blessed memory as incapable of precise rendering into English (or any other tongue), but best - and roughly - described as expected to occur on "the day after Never, the day before Forever"
