Eternal be his memory.
May He remember all your offerings and accept the fat of your holocausts.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Memory eternal!

According to many he was the most respected priest in ACROD, a true servant of the Lord.  I was surprised to hear about this; he has been having some on and off health problems, but to the folks I was speaking to his passing came as a surprise.

"Your Priests shall clothe themselves with righteousness, and your Saints shall rejoice with joy."  May he fall into both groups in the Lord's eternal kingdom!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

May Father Dutko's Memory be Eternal and May the Lord comfort Father Dutko's Loved ones during this period of sadness combined with the joy of the Risen Lord.

Amen!

Memory eternal!

Memory eternal!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
