comment from primate of the orthodox church in america on the death of br. roger

J-Tron's comment below:

Such an incredible tragedy. Guess it goes to show that there's nowhere where we are truly safe from the depravity of evil and sin except in the bosom of Christ.

Let me add to the mix the response of Metropolitan Hermon, the Primate of the Orthodox Church in America:

"Having just learned that Brother Roger’s life on earth has been senselessly taken from him and that he has fallen asleep in the Lord, I greet you with brotherly love in Christ and extend my sincere condolences.

Throughout the many years of his monastic life and service, Brother Roger was a well-known example of dedication to the work of Christian Unity.

Through the example of his life, Brother Roger reminded all Christians of our call to be one in the Lord. The great legacy that he leaves behind has now been entrusted to you.

Be assured of our fervent prayer that the Lord will grant rest with the saints to His newly-departed servant, Brother Roger, and make his memory to be eternal!”
