Congratulations to Metropolitan Ambrosios Aristotelis Zographos
His Grace, pictured above, was enthroned this past Sunday as the second metropolitan of the Orthodox Church in Korea — Christian Leaders Welcome New Orthodox Metropolitan, Hope For Unity.
Present was Catholic Auxiliary Bishop Hyginus Kim Hee-joong of Kwangju, president of the Korean Catholic bishops' Committee for Promoting Christian Unity and Interreligious Dialogue, pictured above seated next to Reverend Kwon Oh-sung, secretary of the National Council of Churches in Korea. (Such œcumenism brings Soloviev's Apocalypse to mind.) His Excellency had this to say: "Since the Vatican is in constant contact with the Ecumenical Patriarchate, I hope and pray that spiritual unity between the two can lead to a 'visible' unity with help from the Holy Spirit." Father Daniel Na Chang-kyu, archpriest of the Korean Orthodox Church, whom I've had the extreme pleasure of meeting, is also interviewed in the article.
