10623Re: Congratulations to Putin
- May 1, 2004Not that it matters much, but I've seen an old photo album produced
to commemorate some past anniversary of Met. Laurus (it must have
been his 20 years as bishop, I forgot - I have that book at home).
There were many congratulatory notes there, including one from the
White House (pres. Reagan), the Governor of NY and many others. I
would think that it is quite natural and within the "protocol" for a
Church leader to congratulate the president and to be congratulated,
although these congratulations rarely gain as much publicity as the
one to Putin.
