"On October 22, 2011, the Orthodox Church celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the election of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the 270th successor of the Apostle Andrew to the See of Constantinople, the First See of the Orthodox Church. Many accolades will be proclaimed of His All-Holiness ministry: his gathering of historic assemblies of the Autocephalous Orthodox Churches, his commitment to Christian reconciliation and unity, his bridge-building among the religions of the world, his prophetic voice on environmental issues. Through each of these, he has become a Servant of the Gospel. The Faculty of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology adds its voice to the celebration with this collection of scholarly essays in honor of His All-Holiness. He has honored our campus with visits in 1997, when he received an honorary doctorate, and in 2002. With this collection, we congratulate His All-Holiness and pray that our Lord and Savior grant him many years!"
