This is a video tribute to Metropolitan Laurus Škurla of New York. On 17 May of this year, the Russian Orthodox Churches in the homeland and abroad reconciled after some 80-odd years of estrangement. It was mainly due to the courage, determination, and vision of Metropolitan Laurus. This healing of an old wound is the fruit of his efforts and sincere desire to overcome old divisions. That’s why Patriarch Aleksei is kissing his hand in respect in the last image of this video.
