A month ago, we all saw the participation of AB Nikitas of Great Britain in the Epiphany of Tarpon Springs, probably the largest public event of GOARCH’s calendar (link here and here).  His participation was quite pronounced, as it celebrated the 50th anniversary of his picking up the Holy Cross from the waters of the Bayou, which highlighted that he is a flesh out of the flesh of this community. Helleniscope has repeatedly written that despite any shortcomings he may have, the fact that he is an American and his well-founded theological knowledge make him an obvious successor of AB Elpidophoros.

It’s very important that he is a cousin of Congressman Billirakis and has worked for a few years (1982-84) in the office of Congressman’s father, Mike Billirakis in DC. This guarantees that we as a Church and Community, will not have to deal with Elpidophoros’s “Turkish Intelligence ties” anymore and that we will have someone who deeply understands the Hellenic Causes.

Suddenly, we learned yesterday that he will be in New York tomorrow to appear in St.Irene Chrysovalantou in Astoria.  AB Nikitas is the President of the St.Irene’s  Chrysovalantou’s Corporation and so there is an obvious “explanation” for his visit – along with the fact that Bishop Ierotheos is very sick and is not expected to survive that much longer. Or is it an “excuse”? You can judge for yourselves… But if you ask me, this is not a coincidence… Where there is smoke there is fire…

  1. A change without a change of our church administration from being under a Turkish Entity is not a viable long term solution. Every Excarch of the Turkish Entity needs to ask for a new structure, promptly.

    There needs to be a better solution and structure is for the Ecumenical Patriachate and the remaining Phanariots that attempt to call Istanbul/Constantinople their home.

    This is what the Archons and heirarchs need to be discussing with other leaders interested in Hellenic Affairs, not crying with their hand out for religous freedom in Turkey.
