The Title of the Pope vs. the Title of the Patriarch

Some of our Protestant readers may cringe at seeing the Pope referred to as “the Holy Father” or “His Holiness”. However, I just came across the title of the Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch:

His Most Godly All-Holiness Bartholomew I
Η Αυτού Θειοτάτη Παναγιότης

Wow. That’s a mouthful.
