On 17 September, a new Armenian Apostolic church was dedicated in Moscow. HH showed up to share the festivities, and he embraced his old friend Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of all Armenians Karekin Nersessian, the head of the Armenian Church. There may not be communion between us, but Russia and Armenia are part of the Orthosphere; we ARE part of a seamless sociological whole (that’s completely separate from the issue of intercommunion). Let’s raise a glass and cheer our friendship… long may it last!
