To The Clergy of the Metropolis of Atlanta:

My Beloved Brothers in the Lord,

I greet you with love and joy in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

At the request of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros, I ask that the following encyclical for the Feast of St. Photios be emailed and shared with your congregation, and read for their edification following the observance of the Feast, Sunday, February 7th. Please click on the highlighted text for one here in English, and here in Greek.

May this defender of Orthodoxy continue to intercede for the National Shrine which bears his name, and for all of us. I remain,


Yours with paternal love and blessings in Christ,

+ A L E X I O S
Metropolitan of Atlanta
