Archbishop Elpidophoros of America was honored by the President of the United States, Joe Biden, to deliver the Opening Prayer at the White House Easter Celebration.
The Archbishop of America said characteristically in his prayer: “Gracious Lord grant your precious wisdom that issues forth from the love triumphant to our president Joseph R. Biden and our vice president Kamala Harris. Be their bright star as they steer the ship of the state, illuming them and all who serve our republic, our military, and our civil servants with the light that burns away every false wood and reveals America to be a shining city on a hill of hope and aspiration”.
Honored by Pres. @JoeBiden to give the invocation at @WhiteHouse Easter Celebration. Let this Easter Spring be the renewal of our Nation, where we all give more, sacrifice more, love more. Blessed feast to those who observe Easter this week & to those who celebrate Pascha in May. pic.twitter.com/9xN4wB0zC2
