Patriarch Ignatius IV of Antioch – Memory Eternal!

Antiochian.org:

It is with great sadness that we report that His Beatitude Ignatius IV (1920-2012), Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, fell asleep in the Lord today, December 5th, 2012, at St. George Orthodox Hospital in Beirut Lebanon, after having suffered a stroke earlier this week.  There are no details yet available regarding services or the funeral, but these will be announced as soon as they are known.

Read biographies of His Beatitude’s remarkable life of service and leadership HERE and HERE.

Read about His Beatitude’s October 2012 visit to the United States.

We ask the Lord to grant rest to the soul of His servant Patriarch Ignatius IV – May His Memory be Eternal!
