Well, I am super jealous. My friend, a fellow Byz Catholic, just met and took a photo with His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew in Turkey. Didn't know where to post this, and I didn't know who else would be excited with me, so I took to OC.net.

I wonder what's going to happen when he passes away. The Islamic state has shut down the seminary their in Turkey and there is a law that states the ecumenical patriarchate of constantinople has to be from Turkey.

Here is a CBS video on what I am talking about. It's done with the recently deceased Bob Simon on 60min

Awesome :)  Can you share the pic, or is that a thing where he/she wants privacy?

A number of clergy were recently granted Turkish citizenship. For the foreseeable future, Constantinople has a reasonable amount of candidates.

several years ago we were at family trip to Istanbul. We were waiting for vespers at the cathedral and I went to buy some soda. And before I returned the patriarch arrived at Phanar.

He's on a plane flying back across the Atlantic right now, but as soon as he gets back I will ask his permission.

I'm hoping he will let me share; there is a pic of Hagia Sophia, and another of the home of the Virgin Mary.
