Three Metropolitans @ Memorial Day Liturgy at STS
- +Herman and +Theodosius flanked +Jonah at yesterday's liturgy in the pavilion. +Herman did not join the procession from the Monastery, but was sent out from the sanctuary to greet the procession when it arrived. As soon as they were all in place on the cathedra, the visiting bishops all left their places to greet +Herman and +Theodosius. +Jonah's well-delivered sermon centered on "See first the Kingdom of Heaven " with emphasis on forgiveness and avoiding judgment. His closing remarks noted the presence of the two former Mets (who were by that time gone) and made the point that "our forgiveness must be visible."
