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

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.
