Dear Readers:

As we reported last month, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and His Holiness Pope Francis met in the Holy City of Jerusalem, celebrating a fifty-year milestone, at press time. “Fifty years ago, two great church leaders, the late Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras, cast out fear; they cast away for themselves the fear which had prevailed for a millennium, a fear which had kept the two ancient Churches of the West and East at a distance from one another,” said Patriarch Bartholomew. For more details regarding that historic occasion, I invite you to turn to page 5.

When HJ Youth Correspondent Giuliana Harris took a ride on the Bay Area’s transit system known as BART, she discovered a surprise connection with one of her Saint Mary’s classmates that would make HJ Founder Frank Agnost smile. See page 6 for this dramatic Hellenic connection.

Finally, last month, beloved Renaissance man Louie Gundunas lost his long battle with cancer. He is remembered fondly for his specialty of ‘picking up the table with his teeth’ which took him on quite a journey. Please see page 10 for the rest of the story.

May his memory be eternal.
