Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew speaks of The Ecumenical Patriarchate in his Enthronement address in the Church of St. George at the Phanar, Istanbul and at the conferral of an honorary doctorate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, in Massachusetts. The Ecumenical Patriarchate, being one of the founding members of World Council of Churches, will not diminish its concern for the good and correct orientation of the Council and its concern that there not be a departure from its first and principal mission, which is the service of Christian unity. He mentions the importance of the Orthodox Church and suggests three particular strengths of Orthodox Christianity. Finally, in keeping with the venerable tradition of this university's contributions to international law and diplomacy, he humbly pledges to “pursue what makes for peace”.
