Bishop Alexander Needs Your Prayers

Many of you may already know that Bishop Alexander (Mileant), of the Diocese of South America, has been struggling against cancer. According to a report I received just a few minutes ago, the cancer has spread to his stomach and intestines. The doctors have prescribed morphine; and he has reportedly been told that, short of a miracle, he has just a few weeks to live.

Please remember the servant of God, Vladika Alexander, in your prayers. The originator of the message has asked that everyone offer an akathist to the Theotokos, the Healer of cancer.

As more information about Vladika's condition is available, I will pass that along to you here.
