His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus Passes Away 

Today, on the day of the Triumph of Orthodoxy, His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus, First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, reposed in the Lord. 

The late Vladyka Laurus "fought the good fight, completed the course, preserved inviolate the faith," and conquered the long division in the Russian Church.  

May His Eminence abide in the Kingdom of Heaven. Memory eternal to him!
