We recall with emotion our late and blessed brother in the Lord, Metropolitan Maximos, who fell asleep in the Lord on the very anniversary of our Enthronement last year. He left this world as the longest serving Hierarch of the Greek Orthodox people of Pittsburgh. Our brotherly fellow of Halki, ὁμογάλακτος ἀδελφός, was a devoted son of the Holy Great Church of Christ, and left a great example of loyalty for all to follow.
