Moderator’s Note: We were recently treated to yet another disparaging letter by His Eminence. Click HERE to read the original.
Exaltation: to be raised up high, glorified or honored.
Exultation: to be joyful or jubilant, especially due to triumph or success; to show or take delight in the defeat or discomfiture of others.
His Eminence was quite correct in pointing out that "exaltation" and "exultation" have different meanings.
The two sentences below are illustrative:
- Greek Orthodox parishioners in the Salt Lake valley were recently informed that someone brought to our exalted Metropolitan’s attention typographical errors in the September 8 Church Bulletin.
- The Metropolitan was exultant in that the errors provided him yet another opportunity to chastise our community.
