+Eternal Memory, Fr. Emmanuel Metaxas
« on: February 23, 2011, 11:25:40 PM »
Today the Servant of God, Fr. Emmanuel Metaxas who served for 54 years in the Church of the Taxiarchae (Archangels) in Watertown, Massachusetts, fell asleep in the Lord. He leaves behind his Presbytera, Penny, as well as three children and three grandchildren.

"May He remember all thy offerings and accept the fat of thy holocausts."
+Eternal Memory.

I helped serve Fr. Metaxas as a youth advisor for 7 years (as well as Fr. Ted & now Fr. Demetri).  An amazing individual, man, and priest.  He will be sorely missed. 

May his Memory be Eternal.

May the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

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

May the Lord remember your priesthood, Fr Emmanuel!

I also had the great honor and privelege to know Fr Emmanuel when I was the "Pastoral Assistant" for Fr Ted Barbas at Taxiarchae Parish. There were times when Fr Emmanuel would give me the benefit of his wisdom when I needed it...he had a very special talent at not only knowing what to say, but also knowing how to say what needed to be said. I have many very fond memories of him, and love looking at Youtube clips of that parish just to see Fr Emmanuel and Fr Ted.

May his memory be eternal.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Dear Lord, please grant the eternal rest to your loyal and faithful servant. Kyrie Eleison! Lord, have mercy!

Fr. Emmanuel will be always fondly remembered by everyone, who met him, as a format of a true Christian. It was an honor and a privilege for me to meet him. Fr. Emmanuel's efforts for the Holy Orthodox Church were beyond extraordinary.
