Your Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros Reverend Hierarchs,
Esteemed Dais Guests,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Good afternoon
You may not be able to see them, but standing beside me are more than 25,000 women, and some very valiant men, all faithful stewards of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society, all eager to welcome Your Eminence to the United States of America — and into our hearts and homes.
The members of Philoptochos are dedicated to
offering comfort where we see pain — sustenance where we find hunger - and hope where we encounter despair.
While we are there in the darkest times, we are, by nature, optimistic.
