Cyprus: Orthodox leader rebukes prelates who oppose papal visit
CWN - May 26, 2010
The head of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus has rebuked Orthodox prelates, including Bishop Athanasios of Limassol, who view Pope Benedict as a heretic and thus oppose his June 4-6 visit to the island nation. “People can believe what they like, but that does not mean offending a guest,” said Archbishop Chrysostomos II.
The nation of 800,000 is 78% Orthodox, 18% Muslim, and 2% Catholic.
