Metropolitan Philip was a hierarch of great vision. I was blessed to study in the theological program he helped to institute (the Antiochian House of Studies). When I entered the program I didn't know the Metropolitan from Adam. By the time I finished the program and the three residencies at Antiochian Village, I had developed a great admiration for His Eminence. Without his vision thousands of Evangelical Protestants probably would never have entered the canonical Orthodox Church. I most likely would never have had the opportunity to study Orthodox theology at the graduate level and certainly wouldn't have had the opportunity to earn a Master's Degree. There probably would be no such thing as an Orthodox Study Bible nor would there be the beautiful retreat center Antiochian Village built atop a holy Pennsylvanian mountian. But what I love most about Metropolitan Philip was his insistent vision that AHOS was to an institute of Applied or "Incarnational" Theology. As the great hierarch insisted, Theology is not meant to remain abstract and theoretical. Rather, theology should be incarnated or manifested into the world in order to reach into the hearts of man for whom it was intended. My favorite book by Met. Philip is "And He Leads Them - The Mind and Heart of Met. Philip Saliba" which I highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience a little of the vision and brilliance of this great hierarch.

Eternal Memory to God's faithful highpriest, Met. Philip

Very sad news. frown

May all his sins be forgiven, for 'no man lives and sins not, for only you God are without sin'.

May his memory be eternal in God's kingdom.

He was some character, a different bishop - appeared once at an event wearing a cowboy hat. One priest told me he always had a cigar in his mouth.

That was not the case during my first and (sadly) only meeting with him on June 29 - 30 of last year. No cigar, ever.

Our bishop suggested that all churches in the diocese I am in have a trisagion memorial prayer for Metropolitan Phillip after last night's Salutation service to the Theotokos (a service held ever Friday night during Lent according to Greek tradition--reciting each week a part of the Akathist to the Theotokos. On the fifth and final Friday, the entire Akathist is chanted. This is one of the most popular services in the the Greek tradition both here and in Greece. The Greeks have a special love for the 'Panayia', the 'all Holy One'.)

It was nice to pray these prayers for the repose of his soul.

May his memory be eternal.

"We Christians will cling firmly to the Middle East and we will fight to the end so that Christians remain as witnesses to their civilization and their great heritage, to the civilization to which they contributed to building before the coming of Islam. No one can remove us from this region.” Metropolitan Philip 1931-2014 - Antiochian Archdiocese of America
