Metropolitan Basil Schott
« on: June 09, 2010, 06:58:36 AM »
His Eminence, Metropolitan Basil (Schott), Archeparch of Pittsburgh of the Ruthenians was hospitalized  several days ago, as a consequence of the cancer that he has been battling for some time. It is reported this morning that he is in critical condition and has lapsed into a coma. Please remember him in your prayers.
"Not only is it unnecessary to adopt the customs of the Latin Rite to manifest one's Catholicism, it is an offense against the unity of the Church."

- Melkite Archbishop Joseph (Tawil), of blessed memory

Lord, bless and protect your servant, Metropolitan Basil.  I met His Eminence when he was the Guardian at Holy Dormition Monastery in PA, when I was there for a retire (while with the Franciscans).

Most Holy Mother Mary, take your servant into your care, returning him to health if his earthly time is not yet complete, or taking him into paradise to find his happiness with your Son.

Metropolitan Basil Schott reposed in the Lord at 3:45 am Thursday June 10, 2010.  I met him many times. He was a kind man.
