Relatives, Friends, Flock and Admirers of His Grace Bishop Alexander (Mileant) Ask for Prayers for Their Archpastor.

Last year, the official website of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia reported on the serious illness of His Grace Bishop Alexander (Mileant), a highly-educated and zealous missionary and the spiritual father of many. Unfortunately, his health is worsening and for this reason, His Grace's relatives, friends, admirers and flock ask everyone to pray that the Lord ease his sufferings and that He send him His omnipotent aid. Yesterday, on the feast day of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia, His Grace's namesday, Vladyka spent the day in his hospital room in Los Angeles.
