Elevation to Metropolitan

I was surprised someone else heard of this as well. Hellenica 20:53, March 31, 2007 (PDT)

Good for him

He is my old comrade from Berkeley. Tim and I would chuckle that his jurisdiction consisted of one small parish. he is one of the must humble and kind man i have ever met. i knew Athenagoras and john maximovitch and tim is right up there with them. i still call him tim after all these years. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MshKlimek (talkcontribs) .

Excellence?

I thought the proper address for a Metropolitan/Archbishop is Eminence? "Excellency" is a secular term, is it not? -- Authiodontist

I changed it because the Greek Archdiocese in the US uses "Eminence" for metropolitans. However, "Excellency" is a perfectly acceptable form of address for bishops. I recall reading an article years ago by Fr Feodor Kovalchuk in a publication of the Moscow Patriarchal Parishes that argued "Your Grace" is not a good translation of the Russian, saying "Excellency" is correct. --Fr Lev 22:57, August 21, 2008 (UTC)

Excellency is the standard indirect reference for titular metropolitans.[1] (Ruling metropolitans get Sevasmiotate/Eminence). It isn't a direct translation of Panierotate, but it's what's given on websites of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 11:11, August 22, 2008 (UTC)
