Your prayers are requested for Metropolitan CONSTANTINE (Papastephanou) of the Archdiocese of Baghdad, Kuwait and Dependencies, a senior and highly esteemed member of the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Antioch, who has been in hospital in London, England.

Many thanks to Fr. Samir Gholam, dean of the Cathedral of St George in London, who sends us the following update concerning His Eminence: "Dear Fellow Servants of the Lord:  May this period of Great Lent be for us a source of all blessings tailored to each one of us.  Sayyidna Constantine is improving continuously and now is in a very encouraging situation.  All our gratitude is rendered to the Loving Lord who shows His extreme mercy to His beloved and loyal hierarch, His Eminence Metropolitan Constantine.  May our God and Saviour Jesus Christ's will be done.  Amen.  Asking for your prayers, I remain your brother in Christ - Father Samir."  Messages may be sent to His Eminence c/o Father Samir at appn48@dsl.pipex.com.

Prayers for Metropolitan CONSTANTINE.

Does anyone what he was in the hospital for?  This is the first I'm hearing of this.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

"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"
