Conference in Memory of Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh

Everything is encounter, in Scripture as in life
Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh

These words, so often spoken by Metropolitan Anthony, were at the heart of
his vision and teaching. In each person he met, believer or unbeliever, he
saw the divine love, the image of God. Indeed for him everything was
encounter, direct, immediate, face to face: �encounter with God and in Him
with creation, and encounter with man in his depths rooted in God�s
creative will. �An encounter that must be personal �because each of us
must experience it for himself, we cannot have it second hand.� To this
end he often quoted the words of St John Chrystostom: �Find the door of
your heart, you will discover it is the door of the kingdom of God�.
It is with these thoughts in mind that the �Metropolitan Anthony of
Sourozh Foundation� has organised this Conference. The second in Western
Europe to be held in his memory, it will continue to reflect on his
legacy. How was he a source of inspiration? How did he help people to open
their hearts to encounter with the living God? What was the influence of
his spiritual vision on our lives, in our contemporary situation?

We hope that people who knew him and also those who have only heard of him
will come, reflect, share recollections, and celebrate his memory.
