Letter to the Editor: On the Agape Service

Dear Editor,

Mr. Constantine Scaros in his commentary “To Succeed Demetrios, We Need Two Archbishops: Chrysostom and Bezos,” published in the May 18-24 edition of The National Herald, makes a false reference: he calls the Agape Service “the Easter Sunday morning Liturgy.” Agape is not a Liturgy but a short Easter universal prayer recited in many languages. The core of the Liturgy is the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist and the offering of Communion. Agape does neither.
