Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexey II has passed

5 December 2008

BBC NEWS | World | Russian Orthodox Church head dies

(via Cliff)

May his soul and the souls of the all the faithful departed rest in peace; Patriarch Alexey pray for us!

I did not know much about him, but he participated ecumenically with the Roman Catholic Church and reconciled with the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia.  Anyone who works for the unity of God’s Church gets points in my book, not that it is the one that counts.
