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.

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

"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

O Lord, receive the soul of Your servant, the High Priest Nicholas, who has departed from this earthly place to repose in Your Bosom; lead his soul to rest in a place of light, happiness, and peace, where there is neither pain nor suffering, neither grief nor sighing, but only life everlasting. As You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, remember his service to You and to Your people, and forgive him every sin he has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin, for You alone are without sin and You are the Resurrection and the Life.

May the memory of Metropolitan Nicholas be eternal nad may his family and our brethren of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese be comforted in the belief that he serves now at the Holy Table of Heaven.
"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."

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

"Eternal Memory grant unto Thy Servant, Nicholas, the Archierarch, who is worthy of Blessedness and Eternal Memory."

He was a deligent laborer in the Vineyard of Our Lord, wholly dedicated to the progress of Holy Orthodoxy and his American-Carpatho Russian Orthodox Diocese, and a loyal son of the venerable Ecumenical Patriarchate. 

Like Archbishop Job of Thrice Blessed Memory, his voice will be greatly missed from the process toward administrative unification through the American Episcopal Assembly.

Memory eternal!   I enjoyed my conversations with Met. Nicholas.  Our prayers, condolences and supplications go out for the abundant pouring of God's grace upon the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese, her clergy and her faithful.
