We've had a couple days of loss for Antioch, both Greek and Syriac. May his memory be eternal!

Memory eternal for the patriarch.  May his prayers be with us!  God be with the Syriac church in this crucial and tough time.

One can't help but notice that month of March is filled with lots of memories of departures for us in recent decades.

What a loss!  Master, pray for us at the Throne of God!  O Merciful Lord, receive Your Servant.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

i am shocked again!
 :(
i mean, of course he was elderly and in poor health, but he was very well loved by many.

may God reward him for all his work even into advanced age and sickness and may the Lord comfort and guide His children.
he has gone to celebrate the resurrection feast in heaven with the Lord.
remember us in our prayers dear father as we remembered you in the liturgy.

Today as a Syriac Christian, I'm very sad. Moran mor ignatius Zakka I Iwas was a very god person. He has done some great thing for the orthodox church, and hes love will always be remembered.

Rest in Peace

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

As per news reports, the body of H.H will be brought from Germany to Lebanon on March 27th and from there taken to Damascus.  The funeral is planned for March 30th at Dayro d' Mor Ephrem (St. Ephrem Monastery) , Ma'arat Sayyidnaya, just outside of Damascus, Syria.

I was just told by a Syrian brother that The next Patriarch was supposed to be one of the two kidnapped by Turkey Bishops, namely, Bishop Yuhanna Ibrahim. A coincidence?

Wow. It's getting crowded up there as of late.

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

Divine Liturgy was today concelebrated at Mor Jacob Monastery, Warburg, Germany, where the mortal remains of the Patriarch is currently kept by various Bishops of the Syriac Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox and Ethiopian Orthodox church. The body of the Patriarch will be taken to Lebanon tomorrow.

The mortal remains of H.H Ignatius Zakka is now at Lebanon. The Catholicose of the East H.B Baselious Thomas I has reached Lebanon from India to lead the funeral.

The Service of Zuyoho for the Late Patriarch was held in Germany. In the service, Patriarch is carried by the bishops to the four sides of the church. On each side, they knock the coffin three times against the altar or the church walls.

During the service, a bishop chants on behalf of the deceased "Phush Bashlom" (remain in peace O altar, O church, O faithful, etc.), the clergy then respond "Zel Bashlom..." (go in peace). It is then a moving farewell act.
