His Beatitude Patriarch John X of Antioch addresses the faithful at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral of Worcester, MA in English and Arabic. His Beatitude arrived in the United States on July 17, 2015, for the 52nd Biennial Convention of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. He and hierarchs from the Patriarchate of Antioch joined the hierarchs, clergy, and faithful of the Antiochian Archdiocese in Worcester.
In the video, Metropolitan Joseph paraphrased His Beatitude: “Although we are being persecuted in the region, we are not leaving the area. We belong to that land and that land belongs to us! We are not going anywhere!… be firm and strong but do not lose hope. We are the light of Christ. We will prevail.”
