Met. LAURUS, Memory Eternal

Met. LAURUS, right, with H.H. Patriarch ALEXY II of Moscow.

It is with greatest sadness I must note the passing of Met. LAURUS, the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).

A servant of the Lord who shepherded ROCOR in its principled opposition — and who manfully recognized when the time for that opposition had ceased. He then led his people through the painful process of reconciliation, and just lived to see its completion. There's much more to say, but I'm afraid I can't say much more at this time.

Requiescat in pace. May his memory be eternal!
