The Abbey-Principality of San Luigi extends its condolences on the passing of the Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch, His Holiness Mar Ignatius Zakka Iwas I, earlier today. He was 81 years of age and had been undergoing angioplasty in Germany.
The Patriarch met on several occasions with the consecrator of the present Prince-Abbot, Archbishop Bertil Persson, and confirmed to him his acceptance of the consecration of Mgr. Joseph-René Vilatte (Prince-Abbot Joseph III de San Luigi) under special provisions by Patriarch Ignatius Peter III/IV.
Memory Eternal! Memory Eternal! Memory Eternal!
