His Beatitude Patriarch John X, the Most blessed and Reverend, has concluded his pastoral visit to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Latakia and its dependencies, at the invitation of its Shepherd, Metropolitan Athanasios (Fahed). The visit included many important stops at educational, intellectual, cultural, national, and church regeneration that were chronicled in the records of the Antiochian Church. The visit also gave the faithful people a new spiritual momentum and an incentive for steadfastness and resilience.
On the final day, His Beatitude met with the Millet Council, the priests, church associations and institutions, the Department of Ecumenical Relations and Development in the Patriarchate - Latakia Branch, and official figures.
They all expressed their happiness with this visit, which marked a renaissance for the Church and society at various levels.
