His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa, expresses his support after the catastrophic earthquake that struck the area of Arkalochori, in a letter to His Eminence Andrea, Metropolitan of Arkalochori, Kastelli and Viannos.

Being very much shocked by the destructive earthquake, which struck the island of Crete and by extension the Arkalochori and Your pious flock, our prayer and concern is turned towards the people of Your suffering District.

On bended knee we supplicated the Most Holy Theotokos, that she cover through her maternal grace and protection our suffering brothers and sisters and console everyone, whose homes and families were severely tested.

beloved brother in Christ

Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa
