Eternal Memory: Very Rev. Protopresbyter Michael Rosco
« on: May 15, 2013, 12:54:02 PM »
JOHNSTOWN, PA -- The Very Rev. Protopresbyer Michael Rosco, fell-asleep-in-the-Lord,  this morning,  May 15, 2013, at Conemaugh Memorial Hospital in Johnstown following an automobile accident last Friday.

Fr. Michael has served the Lord and ACROD honorably and faithfully for the more than 40 years  of his worthy priesthood, most recently serving as Vice-Chancellor of the Diocese, member of the Diocesan Consistory,  Dean of the New York, New Jersey and Washington, DC Deaneries,  Editor of
The Church Messenger, Chairman of the Diocesan Liturgical Music and Mission Commissions, and Pastor to the faithful of St. John The Baptist Orthodox Church in Perth Amboy, NJ.

Funeral arrangements are pending and will be released by the Diocesan Chancery when finalized.   The clergy and faithful of the Diocese are kindly asked to remember the Newly Departed Protopresbyter Michael, his beloved wife, Pani Susan and son Vladimir and the faithful of St. John's Parish in their prayers.

Memory eternal! :-(

I am also praying for his wife and son. May The Lord`s grace always be with them.
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!

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.

ACROD's website provided some additional information that I though fit to place here for the sake of posterity:

http://www.acrod.org/news/releases/patriarchal-condolences - His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I sends condolences in this letter.

http://www.acrod.org/news/releases/funeral-for-fr-rosco - Information on the funeral presided over by His Grace Bishop Gregory of Nyssa. There are also two photo galleries at the bottom of both the funeral and of the Very Rev. Protopresbyter Michael Rosco.
