Visit of Bishop Vasile Bizău
We were pleasantly surprised tonight by the visit of His Excellency Bishop Vasiliy Bizău, Romanian Greek Catholic Auxiliary Bishop of Făgăraş şi Alba Iulia. He was travelling to various parts of Canada and wanted very much to visit Holy Spirit Seminary – he had heard good things about us. He arrived just in time for the celebration of the Ninth Hour during the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. Our own seminarian Ilie Babota, a Ukrainian Catholic born in Romania and studying for the Eparchy of Stamford, acted as our translator between English and Romanian. Bishop Vasiliy imparted his blessing on us just before his subdeacon/driver transported him to Toronto for meetings the next day. Eis polla eti despota! Многая літа!
