Athens, December 2007
His Eminence Metropolitan of Montenegro and the Coastlands, Amfilohije, together with priest Rev. Gajo Gajic, visited the head of the Greek Orthodox Church, His Beatitude Christodoulos, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece. The vistit took place in Athens and with the blessing of His Holiness Serbian Patriarch Pavle.
With the occasion, Metropolitan Amfilohije expressed Patriarch Pavle's kind regards and handed over the financial help the faithful Serbian people had collected through the Church and which is aimed at the families who had suffered in the recent nation-wide forest fires in Greece.
The Greek Archbishop is going through difficult moments himself, following an illness diagnosed in the past month of June, but despite of the malignant hepatic disease and an insuccessful transplantation attempt in Miami, he hasn't let his spirit down.
Archbishop Christodoulos receives visits on a daily basis, and was particularly happy to receive the guests from Serbia, inquiring about the health condition of our Patriarch and expressing his concern on the position of Kosovo and Metohija, as well as his open discontent against the holders of political world power and their attitude towards the cradle of Serbian culture and spritualtiy.
With the blessing of the Greek Archbishop, Metropolitan Amfilohije served the Holy Lithurgy in Spata, together with Metropolitan of Mesogeion, Nicholas.
