Axios!

I looked him up. Apparently he's Metropolitan of Western Europe at the moment. I didn't even know the Antiochians had a presence here in Western Europe.

For sure the new patriarch has great theological and liturgical background. I'm curious how he works with laymen.

Axios to the new Patriarch!

Forgive me for my lack of knowledge on this issue but why has the new Patriarch been elected so quickly after the falling asleep of the previous one?
Isn't there usually at least a forty day mourning period among most patriarchates before a new election?

you saw a Virgin great with Child, you gave glory with the shepherds,
you worshipped with the Magi, you received the news from the angel.

According to the Basic Statute of the Patriarchate of Antioch, the election of the new patriarch must take place within ten days of the funeral of the departed patriarch. The relevant parts of the statute are translated here: http://araborthodoxy.blogspot.com/2012/12/how-patriarchate-of-antioch-elects-new.html

It should be noted, though, that at the beginning of Monday's meeting, the requirement that a candidate must have been on the Holy Synod for 5 years was waived, thus allowing the election of Metropolitan John.

According to the rules of governance of the Patriarchate of Antioch, the election for the new patriarch must take place within 10 days of becoming vacant. The logic is that a majority of the Metropolitans would be present for the funeral, and with over half the Synod now living abroad, it is more practical for the election to take place sooner.
