Yesterday was a day of immense contrasts. A quiet hospital visit with a 90-year woman. His Beatitude and the heads of church delegations meeting President Vladimir Putin for dinner and conversation at the Kremlin. A television interview with Metropolitan Tikhon. Then a spectacular sound and light and fireworks show for the 1025th anniversary that filled Red Square with some 50,000 people. And then a Saint Tikhon’s Seminary Board conference call at midnight (4:00 pm Philadephia time).
