"Love Never Fails."(1Cor 13:8)
|The Departed Bishop and Abbot His Grace Bishop Karas|
A Message from the Bishopric of Youth Affairs to the Monastery of St. Antony the Great
A face of light, a loving heart, a pious Bishop, a pure Monk, Abba Karas has departed from us, to Paradise. He was a rare example of the simplicity of Christ and His forbearance, of a holy and pure life, and of true monasticism in its angelic traits.
He departed from us after having given numerous testimonies to Christ Whom he loved, to the Monastery which he served, and to the Church to which he belonged:
Blessed are you, beloved Father, for you have fought the good fight, you have completed your endeavor, you have maintained the faith, and now you have received the crown of righteousness.
Our condolences to the shepherd of the shepherds, who loved you with all his heart and cared for you in your illness. Our condolences to the Holy Synod, to the beloved Monastery, and to us all.
His Grace Bishop Moussa
