Ecumenical Patriarch At the Tomb of the Apostle John

On Saturday 28 May 2011, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew celebrated the Divine Liturgy in the Basilika of the Saint John the Theologian in Ephesus of Asia Minor. Built by Emperor Justinian in the sixth century over the grave of the Apostle John, the church is now in ruins though the grave is still preserved in the altar area.
