Christ is in our midst!!

I just saw an article on MSM that reported the opening of the rebuilt St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church near the World Trade Center in New York. The article said that the first Divine Liturgy had been served there on Tuesday, St Nicholas Day. The article went on to say that the church is now open to visitors.

Forgot to mention....LOVE His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios (born Demetrios Trakatellis. A Real Holy Man of God. You can almost see holiness oozing from his face and demeanor.

Blessed Christmas to you and all, also!

I had the great privilege of having His Eminence in Sacred Scripture class when he was a professor at Holy Cross, Brookline, MA. His erudition complimented his holiness!

Please Utroque, pray for me to see His Eminence in person before he sleeps in the Lord as he is in his 90s!
