Antiochian.org: His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph Speaks at 2014 San Francisco Parish Life Conference

His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, newly-elected Archbishop of New York and Metropolitan of All North America, presided over the 2014 San Francisco Parish Life Conference of the Diocese of Los Angeles and the Diocese of Eagle River, shortly after his return from the Antiochian Unity Conference held in Balamand, Lebanon.

Two recordings are available on Antiochian.org here, of Metropolitan Joseph’s first remarks after his arrival (18 minutes) and of his homily delivered on Sunday, July 6 (23 minutes).

Metropolitan Joseph says in part in his first remarks:

“Before anything, we have to think of the Holy Spirit who is leading the Church. … Thank you for your love, thank you for your patience, thank you for your endurance, thank you for your prayers and your tears as well. There is no reason to have any fear. … The Holy Spirit is leading this Archdiocese, is leading this Church. … All of us, clergy and laity, laity and clergy … the Archdiocese is all of us. We have to believe in this. And we have to have faith.”
