Ec­u­meni­cal Pa­tri­arch Vartholo­maios yes­ter­day ex­pressed his con­vic­tion that Greece will get through the cur­rent cri­sis, not­ing that the nation has sur­vived worse, dur­ing a meet­ing with Prime Min­is­ter Ge­orge Pa­pan­dreou. “As a nation, we have sur­vived worse times. I hope that this time, too, with na­tional unity, un­der the lead­er­ship of your gov­ern­ment, we will be able to cross the river,” said the pa­tri­arch, who is vis­it­ing Athens for the Spe­cial Olympics. Pa­pan­dreou de­scribed Vartholo­maios’ own strug­gle – “a tough and per­pet­ual strug­gle not only for the Ec­u­meni­cal Pa­tri­ar­chate but for all of Or­tho­doxy and its rights” – as an inspiration.
