His All-Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew highlighted the importance of the Holy and Great Council at an official dinner hosted 16 June by Nikos Kotzias, minister of foreign affairs for the Hellenic Republic, for the Primates of the Orthodox Church who are presently in Crete. 

His All Holiness emphasized that the “world is turning its attention with great expectations to the Orthodox Church, the ark of the pure Christian tradition, in order to find support and consolation, because Orthodoxy has managed to preserve, up to today, regardless of the rapid technological and scientific developments, the mystical experience of a personal communion in respect of God.” 

Kotzias praised the role of Orthodoxy, expressing the expectancy that the Holy and Great Council “will give hope, heal sorrows, and offer the ability to the people to approach with hope the Orthodox Church and to understand its meaning.”
