"If the invitation came, then the holy synod of the Greek Ortho- dox Church would make the deci- sion as to sending representa- tives." Patriarch Benedictos said the Orthodox are "against any so- called 'surrender to Rome' poli- cies. We must discuss unity only as equals. Submission is not the way to.unity." The Patriarch said he had found the Greek Orthodox of the U.S. "loyal to their faith and the Unit- ed States." , Offers Prayer WASHINGTON, (NC) -- Presi- dent Kennedy took his own acl- vice and did his part in the servance of a national day of prayer "for peace in our time with freedom and justice and dignity for all mankind."
