Metropolitan Nicholas under Hospice Care
« on: March 10, 2011, 11:37:45 AM »
We have learned from the Chancery in Johnstown, PA that His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos has entered hospice care at the Bishop's Residence. In this first week of the great fast, please pray for him in his time of need, seek the protection of the Blessed Virgin, to whom his priestly ministry has been dedicated for fifty two years and have the heavenly messengers protect his soul and guide him through the coming period of time. Please ask that your priest remember him in his prayers and commemorations for the sick. Axios! Axios! Axios! Lord, have mercy. Hospodi Pomiluj.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Господи, помилуй.

Do you have a link to a press release? I'd like to share it with my priest and ask him to commemorate His Eminence.

The chancery sent out a letter to Deans and priests which was received yesterday. I don't have a press release at this time.

Lord have mercy on your servant!
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.
