Please fervently pray for Archbishop Vsevolod of Scopelos, head of the Western Diocese of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. His Eminence has recently announced that he has been diagnosed with leukemia and is under treatment in a Chicago area hospital.

AB Vsevolod has been a major figure in Catholic-Orthodox relations for the last 20 years as a bishop, a member of the US Orthodox-Catholic bishop's consultation, and the Orthodox Co-patron of the Society of St. John Chrysostom and Co-founder of the Orientale Lumen Conferences in 1997.

He has written two extensive books on the ecumenical dialogue, and given numerous speeches and talks on Catholic-Orthodox relations. I have accompanied him on numerous visits to Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and three private audiences with Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, where he has been warmly received.

Please remember him in your prayers that he recovers from this difficult disease and can return to fostering Church unity for which is he is so well-known.

Oh, Jack, I'm so sorry to hear this.

Heartfelt prayers for this wonderful Archbishop! Through the intercession of the Theotokos and all the saints, may His Eminence, Archbishop Vsevolod, be healed of every affliction.

As a sibling to an adult leukemia survivor, I know that they have made great advances in the treatment of this terrible disease, especially through the use of vitamin therapy.

Prayers!

Protected by your coming, O Mother of God, well-believing people solemnly celebrate today. Gazing upon your immaculate image they humbly say: "Watch over us with your noble protection and deliver us from all evil by asking your Son, Christ our God, to save our souls." (Troparion)

Good news! I have just recently heard that AB Vsevolod is doing better, and is now walking the halls of the hospital, where he has been ungoing treatment for several weeks.

Please keep up the prayers -- they are working!

Almighty God and heavenly Father, You are the fountain of life and healing. I bless Your holy name and offer to You thanks for having delivered Archbishop Vsevolod from sickness and restored him to health. Grant Archbishop Vsevolod Your eternal grace, I pray, that he may live a new life in true obedience to You. Guide Archbishop Vsevolod to do Your will in all things devoting his life to Your service. Thus living for You may he be found worthy of Your kingdom, where You dwell in glory with Your Son and Your Holy Spirit forever. Amen.
