Message from Anastasios, Archbishop of Tirana
I wish you full success and a fruitful outcome in your creative initiatives
Tirana, 30th April, 2008
My dear Fr. Enzo Bianchi,
Christ is Risen!
First of all I would like to apologize for my long silence concerning your email of 27th December, 2007 and your very kind invitation for the Orthodox Church in Albania to attend the XVIth International Ecumenical Conference on Orthodox Spirituality which will take place from 18th to 21st September 2008 with the topic "Spiritual Paternity".
Unfortunately, following two eye operations I am still under my doctor's care. Thus, I must obey his orders and avoid long travels as well as participation in conferences. Therefore, I will not be able to take part in this Congress.
Wishing you full success and a fruitful outcome in your creative initiatives, I remain
Archbishop of Tirana, Durres and All Albania
