Metropolitan Philip had a heart attack
« on: March 10, 2014, 10:39:39 PM »
According to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America website Metropolitan Philip had a heart attack while in the hospital doing some tests. Prayers for him.

Lord, have mercy.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Lord have mercy.
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

Tubes been taken out of his throat and he can talk.  Sounds like he's still in the hospital though.

Kyrie Eleison.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

Saying it is praying it. Have you never heard of the saying he who sings or reads in church is actually praying twice?  ::)

As I stated in the text of my recent warning, this is not appropriate for the Prayer Forum and is one of the reasons I put you back on post moderation. Please don't do this again.

His Eminence Metropolitan Philip, who served longer than any archierarchal primate in the history of North American Orthodox Christianity, passed from this life around 8:30 p.m. on March 19th. Despite a progressive recovery, he experienced another heart attack and could not be revived. May God grant this most accomplished hierarch blessed eternal repose among the saints. (Ancient Faith Radio has an interview with the AOCANA's Vicar General on the passing of His Eminence.)

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,57402.0.html

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_2gI17e7A8

may God welcome him into paradise as he welcomed so many into the orthodox church.
may God comfort all his children and raise up many leaders who are wise and loving like him.
