“Сегодня нужно быть вместе с русским народом” – Интервью архиепископа Монреальского и Канадского Гавриила газете «Единение»

Мы встретились и смогли задать вопросы владыке Гавриилу в монастыре в посёлке Кентлин во время его визита в Австралию.

– Ваше Высокопреосвященство, в этом году Вам исполнилось 50 лет. Среди множества писем, которые Вы получили к юбилею, было поздравление от Святейшего Патриарха Московского и Всея Руси Кирилла. Много лет вы трудились в Синоде РПЦЗ в Нью-Йорке. Но ведь родились и выросли Вы здесь, в Австралии. Как часто Вам удаётся побывать на родине?

– Я стараюсь хотя бы раз в году побывать здесь. У меня в Австралии остались братья и сестры, немало племянников, двоюродных братьев и сестёр и других родственников. Вся моя семья здесь, поэтому мне особенно приятно бывать в Австралии. (more…)
