I send this email with the blessing of Archbishop JOSEPH.

His Beatitude Patriarch JOHN X has told us that he intends to be with us for the funeral and the Sunday Divine Liturgy.

1.        Attached you will find two letters from His Beatitude Patriarch JOHN X, both the Arabic original and an English translation.

Both Letters  appoint Metropolitan SILOUAN of Buenos Aires and all Argentina as the

Patriarchal Vicar until such time as a new Metropolitan is elected by the Holy Synod of Antioch.

The Patriarchal Vicar is responsible for the administration of the Archdiocese until a new Metropolitan is elected.

Archbishop JOSEPH will serve as the Locum Tenens of the Archdiocese.

Archbishop JOSEPH will arrive on Friday March 21, and  Metropolitan SILOUAN will arrive on Monday March 24.

2.       Effective immediately and until the election of a new Metropolitan, all clergy of this Archdiocese are instructed to commemorate His Beatitude JOHN, Patriarch of Antioch and All the East during divine services

as follows: Great Entrance “Our father and Patriarch JOHN and our bishop (name), the Lord God remember them in His Kingdom always now and ever and unto ages of ages”

Also during the Great Entrance, the first name that is commemorated among the departed will be His Eminence Metropolitan Philip as follows “Our father and Metropolitan Philip”.

The remembrance of Metropolitan PHILIP will be done for 40 days which ends on Sunday April 27.
