Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew visited Imbros, his homeland, to celebrate his 60 years of priesthood.
In an exclusive interview with MEGA Channel, the Ecumenical Patriarch spoke about his childhood, climate change, vaccinations, completing his 30 years as Patriarch, and succession issues.
The Patriarch guided the crew and camera of MEGA to his place and especially to the village where he was born.
Among other things, he stated the following about climate change:
“It’s a message of respect for the natural environment because in recent months the planet has sent out alarm signals. Our nature takes revenge. Nature protests. The floods and fires are a consequence of our selfish attitude towards nature.”
