I begin writing this letter with a deep sense of sadness and loss, never expecting to be obliged to do so at such an unexpected time, following the repose of our beloved Metropolitan Constantine, Primate of our Church since 1993, a hierarch since 1972 and priest since 1967. We have mourned his departure from us deeply, along with the members of his family and still find it difficult that it happened so suddenly, less than 48 hours after the joyful celebration of his 40th anniversary of episcopal service to our Church...

It would have been nice to mention which jurisdiction is concerned.

Is there anyone 'tipped' to be the next metropolitan? (Is it assumed to be one of the current ruling hierarchs or could they elect an episcopal candidate as metropolitan?)
