Memory Eternal

Metropolitan PHILIP (1931-2014)
Memory Eternal to the man who opened the doors of Orthodoxy to a group of seekers in the 1980's when everyone else turned them away.  His open arms brought my in-laws and husband into the church, and paved the path for my family to come years later.  Because of him, and Fr. Peter and Fr. Gordon, I am where I am today.

Amen. I keep thinking of his words to those men, "Welcome Home." Memory Eternal, Metropolitan Philip, and thank you.

Memory Eternal! I am also grateful for this man's life and His Love for Our Lord shown through welcoming so many "home".
