During his visit to Cyprus, Catholicos Aram I delivered a sermon on 6th March 2005 in St. Mary Church (Nicosia).
Among other subjects, he stressed the need for recognizing the other. He said: "Diversity in our life is a natural phenomenon. We have frequently stressed the necessity of maintaining diversity and uniqueness as enriching elements in many aspects of our public life. But when diversity is not reflected in a harmonious way, it can cause polarity. When the differences among us does not lead to cooperation, they can be source of inner tensions".
"We need to introduce harmonious cooperation more than ever in Armenia and Diaspora, in the communication between them and also in every community and domain of public life", he added.
