Metropolitan Archbishop Andrei and his admirations

Benedict Vesa, Metropolitan Archbishop Andrei and his admirations
In these anniversary moments we pay tribute to those who have a special role in the public and personal religious life. This year, our Metropolitan Archbishop Andrei celebrates 25 years of episcopate. This important anniversary is now doubled by the feast of his spiritual patron – Saint Andrew, protector of Romania. In this context, the present article is intended as an evocation of his personality based on his admirations (his “friends”) and their dominant features so that, in the end, one above the other, to picture a corollary of the human characteristics behind his personal architecture.
