Patriarch Ignatius IV Suffers Stroke (Memory Eternal)

Word that the Patriarch of Antioch is in critical condition after suffering what looks like a massive stroke. Prayers please...

Update: Patriarch Ignatius IV has reposed. May his memory be eternal.

He has fallen asleep. May his memory be eternal and may he rest with the righteous made perfect in faith.

An era of Patriarchs certainly seems to be coming to a close. May God remember all of them in His Kingdom.

I was afraid this would happen :-(, though I'd expected Patriarch Ignatius Zacchaeus of the Syriac Orthodox Church to go first given the poor state of his health in recent years :-/.

God grant Patriarch Ignatius' memory to be eternal!

God be with His servant and His Antiochian Church.

My prayers go out for His Holiness to be received before the throne of grace.
