CNA Staff, Jan 7, 2021 / 04:00 am (CNA).- Archbishop Raphael Minassian is a man of action who has little time for the formalities of ecclesiastical life.
Speaking to CNA from the Armenian capital, Yerevan, on Jan. 5, he said that he felt uncomfortable being addressed as “Your Excellency.”
“I leave everything to divine providence because I’m a very simple clergy working for the Church,” he explained. “‘Excellency,’ etc., are for other people, not for me. I am Fr. Raphael.”
