H.B. John X, patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch and all the East, April 2021.


The patriarch expresses the thoughtfulness of the theme for the WCC 11th Assembly, Christs love moves the world to reconciliation and unity.”

As beloved children, Christians learn about love from the example of Christs infinite love for the sake of all humans, when He voluntarily gave Himself over to death to save them from sin and death,” he writes.

Many difficulties still challenge our movement toward visible unity, the message continues. Nonetheless, these challenges impel us to ceaseless prayer and deep repentance,” the message reads.
