The Servant of God, Metropolitan Elia (Saliba), Memory Eternal!

 

With sadness, and with hope in the Resurrection, His Eminence Metropolitan Silouan conveys the news from the Patriarchate of Antioch of the falling asleep in the Lord of His Eminence Metropolitan Elia (Saliba) of the Antiochian Archdiocese of Hama (or Afamia) in central Syria, which he faithfully shepherded since 1984. Metropolitan Elia reposed on Saturday morning, April 1, 2017, at the age of 95.

May God receive Metropolitan Elia in His Heavenly Kingdom and may his memory be eternal.
