"Eternal Memory" Michael G. Cantonis
« on: November 18, 2009, 04:09:31 AM »
The Greek Orthodox Church in America has lost one of its great benefactors, Michael Cantonis, who died on November 17th at the age of 94.  He was an Archon of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.  Among his numerous contributions to the church, he endowed a chair at Holy Cross School of Theology, supported the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and was a friend who supported the ministry of the former Archbishop of America, Spyridon. He was also the Godfather of the Saint Michael the Archangel Parish in Locanto, Florida, which will be opening its new Byzantine style edifice in a matter of weeks.  Services will be held at St. Nicholas Cathedral in Tarpon Springs, Florida. 

May he rest in peace among the saints.

Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Memory eternal.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
