Archbishop ilarion, head of extra-ecclesial affairs


Famous theologian, musician and bishop,Bishop Volokolamskij Ilarion, was raised to level of Archbishop by Patriarch Kirill on 20/4/2009 and is also head of Moskow patriarchate office of extra-ecclesial relations where he deals with such as Catolics, Baptists and other non-Orthodox believers.

This will be important for relationship of Catolics and Orthodox. Archbishop Ilarion was head of Viene Avstria orthodox church and well known to many at this site as composer and writer.

I pray for God to act through this wonderful young man:
