7th Anniversary of Our Friend & Brother, Hypo-Ortho
« on: December 01, 2010, 01:58:39 AM »
Today, December 1, is the seventh anniversary of the repose of our beloved friend and brother, John Royce, who posted here as Hypo-Ortho and at ByzCath as Orthodox East. Please remember him in your prayers.

Lord, we thank You for the years that You allowed us to enjoy the company of Your servant, John. We trust and pray that he is with You in a place of light and love, where there is neither pain nor suffering, neither grief nor sighing.

We ask also that You give comfort to Christine and his family in their happy memories of him and the belief that he is with You.

May John's memory be eternal.
"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

I well remember the shock that went round us all when we learnt of his passing.

John was a true gentleman.

May his memory be eternal

Memory eternal.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Seven years... It's hard to believe it's been that long.  He was a true gentleman and he's still missed.

May Light perpetual shine upon him.

"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.
