Memo from the Diocesan Metropolitan

Blessings to the Very Reverend Chor Episcopoi, Reverend Fathers, Reverend Deacons, and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese.

Dearly beloved,

We have been informed from the Office of His Holiness, that the health of our beloved, His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Didymus I, the retired Catholicos of the East, has declined significantly.

His Holiness has been admitted to Parumala Hospital, and His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulos II, is at the bedside of our dear Thirumeni.

We request our clergy and faithful, to remain in prayerful vigil, asking God Almighty to grant mercy, and peace to our beloved Didymus Bava Thirumeni.

Yours in our Lord,
Zachariah Nicholovos, Metropolitan
