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.
"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

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.
