    Today a critical meeting, presided by the Ecumenical Patriarch will take place in Phanar, and determinative of the stance the Greek Orthodox Churches will keep on the issue of Jerusalem Patriarch Eirinaios. The meeting will also be attended by Alexandria Patriarch, Theodoros, while the verdict of the Patriarchal delegation that visited Jerusalem last week is also expected to be announced. The cause is if Patriarch Bartholomew will advert Eirinaios on Sunday, since the Administrative Committee of the Jerusalem Patriarchate asks that the advert of the deposed Patriarch should be stopped.

    "Do Not Advert Him"

    On this issue, Archbishop Christodoulos had a telephone discussion with Bartholomew, while he cancelled his visits to Karditsa and Larisa. As it was made known, Christodoulos will not perform Mass on Sunday, in order to not take a stance in the demand of the Jerusalem Patriarchate Administrative Committee to stop the advert.

    In the meantime, Prime Minister Karamanlis in his speech in Parliament yesterday, asked Eirinaios to rise up to the circumstances in order to safeguard the Greek-Orthodox character of the Jerusalem Patriarchate
