of thanks and gratitude to Bishop Mark on this last weekend of his official capacity as a Bishop in the Antiochian Archdiocese. I am grateful for your listening and your care. I appreciate the fact that you didn’t ignore the little or the distant churches in your diocese. I am glad that I never felt like I was a tool in your greater plan. I am impressed by your courage. Our loss will be the OCA’s gain and those of us who understand will not forget. Axios!
