According to reports, Patriarch Ignatius IV Hazim of Antioch and all the East reposed moments ago. He was admitted to the Saint George Hospital in Lebanon Tuesday morning after suffering a stroke. He was 91.

The hospital’s administration said it would release a statement concerning his death later Wednesday.

Born in the village of Mhardey near Hama in Syria in 1921, Hazim was the son of an Arab Orthodox family and was attracted to church services from an early age.

After finishing school in Hama, Hazim moved to Beirut where he studied literature and started serving the Orthodox Church in Lebanon.

Hazim helped found the global Society of Orthodox Youth Organizations and he became a member of the Sacred Convention of Orthodox Patriarchs in 1961, and in 1971 he was appointed Orthodox Metropolitan of the Syrian city of Lattakia.

Hazim was appointed Greek Orthodox Patriarch of the Levant and Antioch in 1979.

May his memory be eternal!

May his memory be eternal

MEMORY ETERNAL! Your most fervent prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of our Father-in-God HIS BEATITUDE IGNATIUS IV, 91, Patriarch of the Great City-of-God Antioch and all the East. According to official notification received this morning from Bishop Ghattas (Patriarchal Vicar), His Beatitude fell asleep in Christ today, December 5th, at St George Orthodox Hospital in Beirut after suffering a stroke earlier this week. Further information and instructions for the clergy will be announced via our Archdiocesan web site: www.antiochian.org

For a brief biography of His Beatitude, go to www.antiochdev.org/churchSite/portal/bios/bioEn.php
Please join me in praying a rope for His Beatitude, saying, "O Lord Jesus Christ, grant rest to the soul of Thy servant, our Father and Patriarch Ignatius." May he be granted Paradise, and may you be granted long life.
In Him Who is our Resurrection and our Life,
+Bishop Basil

He was in Houston less than a month ago for his 5 year check up at the Houston Medical Center. He was "supposed" (we had requested) to attend a Vespers service in our parish while he was still here. He was unable to attend.

After having not checked my e-mail for a couple of days; I was stunned to hear from my priest, that Patriarch Ignatius IV reposed this past Wednesday morning, having suffered a stroke days earlier.

Brethren pray for us!

the sinful and unworthy servant,
Sdn Moses
