After not knowing what happened to our Patriarch for more
than seven years we are comforted to hear news of his wellbeing even though he is still under house arrest. Upon his arrest he famously spoke comparing his monastic cell with a prison cell and said “A monk before and shall remain a monk”.
The 87 year old Patriarch’s only request, as reported by his
recent contact, is “I want to spend my last days in a monastery?” A request denied by the government. Is this too much to ask???
