From an email sent throughout the AOA Mid Atlantic Diocese late Christmas Eve:

Quote


Christ is born! Glorify Him!


I wish you all a blessed feast. About an hour before I celebrated the Divine Liturgy this evening, my mother Sylvia Jean fell asleep in the Lord. As you know, she had been suffering for a good period of time. Although this was unexpected, she was visited by both a deacon and priest today. Afterward, she was rushed to the hospital and, not long after, fell asleep. She was 93.

There are so many of you who prayed for my mom and offered all kinds of support. My father, my sister and I are eternally grateful to you. More importantly, Mom is grateful.

I'll ask again for your holy prayers for her soul.

May she rest in peace, and may God give us the strength to bear this loss.



Yours in Christ,

+Bp. THOMAS
