During Communion, the Patriarch spoke from his heart to all those present, thanking each person, for the friendly hospitality in the beautiful country of Mozambique and gave particular thanks to the local Bishop His Grace Ioannis, for his love of the Patriarchate and the love shown to him personally.

Following efforts by His Grace Ioannis Bishop of Mozambique, the Roman Catholic Church gave a piece of the relics of the holy, glorious Apostle and Evangelist mark, Founder and Enlightener of the Church of Alexandria, which has been placed in an elaborate silver reliquary. Visible emotional for this important gift to the Alexandrian Church, the Patriarch wholeheartedly thanked the donors and assured all present that the holy relic will be placed in the sacristy of the Patriarchal Chapel, to be venerated during the feast day of the Apostle, on 2th April every year.
