Beloved in the Lord clergymen and flock of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese in the USA: †

News of the repose of His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas, who was universally beloved, brought pain not only in my unworthy heart but in the hearts of many who had know the dear Vladyka.

May the Lord strengthen ďall who weep and suffer, desiring Christís consolation.Ē †

With undying love in the Lord,
