Memory Eternal!
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

Memory eternal.
"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"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

We prayed for him in Church this morning.  May his memory be eternal.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

this was started to let the broad public know (through a new thread) that His eminence has passed.  Some people may have not read Monk Vasilie's thread...

I met Metropolitan Christopher a number of times, he was a wonderful person to speak with and a bright and caring person. He will certainly be missed.
