Metropolitan Joseph says in part:

“Before anything, we have to think of the Holy Spirit who is leading the Church. … Thank you for your love, thank you for your patience, thank you for your endurance, thank you for your prayers and your tears as well. There is no reason to have any fear. … The Holy Spirit is leading this Archdiocese, is leading this Church. … All of us, clergy and laity, laity and clergy … the Archdiocese is all of us. We have to believe in this. And we have to have faith.”
