Archbishop Elpidophoros of the Americas, the head of the Greek Orthodox Church in the Americas, issued an encyclical for Thanksgiving 2021 expressing special gratitude for the long and successful tenure of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who recently visited the United States.

Saying that the annual holiday calls us to be reminded for all that we have to be thankful for in our lives, Archbishop Elpidophoros’ Thanksgiving message recalled the “moments of concern” when the Patriarch was taken to the hospital after suffering serious health problems, having had a stent implanted near the end of his visit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in New York City earlier in November.

After being released from the hospital, the Ecumenical Patriarch returned home and this week even traveled to Greece, meeting with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and President Katerina Sakellaropoulou as he celebrated thirty years as the head of all Greek Orthodox worldwide.
