Memory Eternal!

His Holiness ALEXY II, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, reposed in the Lord on Friday, December 5. He was elected Patriarch in 1990 and served the Russian Orthodox Church during an amazingly tumultuous period, witnessing the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the widespread renewal of Orthodox faith and practice.

May his soul dwell with the blessed! Memory Eternal!
