Ihumen Gregory
« on: October 24, 2008, 09:28:45 PM »
Ihumen Gregory (Woolfenden) [UOC of USA], was stricken with a tumor in a kidney, had
surgery in a hospital in Rome, and was then flown to Connecticut for
further treatment.  Because of the large size of the tumor, it has not yet
been operated on - that we hope will happen very soon.  Keep up him in your prayers.

Oh, my God! Just spoke to him several weeks ago.

Father Gregory is a really good man. Very friendly and spiritual. Also, a brilliant theologian. The first Communion, that I took upon my arrival in UK was from Father Gregory's hands. And then we ended up in neighboring parishes in New England a couple of years later.

Dear Lord, please have mercy on Your loyal and faithful servant, Ihumen Gregory.

Yes, Stashko. Ihumen is the Ukrainian form of the Greek igoumenos, in Russian and some other Slavic languages it is igumen. The Ukrainian language often substitutes the G for an H, such as in Hospodi pomiluy.

It's not missing hard sounds. There is a sound of hard "g," pronounced exactly like the Russian or the English "g." In writing, this sound in Ukrainian is conveyed by the letter "ґ " (while the breathing "h" is conveyed by the letter "г "). The hard ґ in Ukrainian is relatively rare, but there are words where it legitimately belongs, like ґудзик (clothes button), or ґрати (bars, like prison window bars), etc. When Ukrainians use words that come from Latin with its hard "g," they use ґ (like in ґратулюю - congratulate, or ґрандіозний - grandiose). But if the foreign word has a Greek origin, it should contain the soft, breathing г, like in ігумeн, пeдагог, агіазма. (In contrast, the Russian language simply does not have this soft breathing г/h sound.)

Anyway, closer to the topic of this section, prayers for ігумeн Григорій!

I just received this from one of our parishioners at St. Andrew's:
Fr. Gregory will be undergoing surgery on November 21. His condition remains very serious, but MGH does not put people for surgery, when no hope seems realistic. It would be great to continue to commemorate Fr. Gregory in prayers.
