Metropolitan LAURUS hospitalized
« on: December 06, 2002, 01:43:56 AM »
In another forum I just read of the hospitalization of the First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR), His Eminence, Metropolitan LAURUS.  The Metropolitan was recovering at Holy Trinity Monastery, Jordanville, NY, after just being released from the hospital after being admitted for chest pains.  While at Jordanville, he developed a fever and has been hospitalized once again.  We all join Nicholas in praying for Vladyka Metropolitan LAURUS's speedy recovery.

Just lit a virtual candle using Shockwave in front of a picture of an icon of Our Lady on Mt Athos - http://www-media.dbnet.ece.ntua.gr/athos/uk/mones/enter.htm - for Met. Laurus, the Rusyn-born first hierarch of ROCOR.

I have much catching up as I have been gone from this forum for many weeks, so sorry this is so late, but Met. Laurus is now out of the hospital. I believe the entire statement is in the link to the thread that Joe Zollars posted above now.
