May the Lord forgive him his every transgression, and bring him to His Kingdom. May the Lord also Bless and comfort the Antiochian Christians in their loss. Memory Eternal.
His Beatitude, the Most Blessed IGNATIUS IV
Patriarch of Antioch and all the East
It is with extreme sadness that we inform you that our beloved Father in Christ, His Beatitude, Patriarch IGNATIUS IV of Antioch and all the East, fell asleep in the Lord on Wednesday, December 5, 2012. His Eminence, Archbishop JOSEPH has asked the parishes to remember him in your prayers for the departed for the next 40 days and to hold a special Trisagion for his eternal life. May God receive him in His Heavenly Kingdom and may his memory be eternal.” The Antiochian Diocese of the West
