Archbishop of Greece in USA for transplant

Did you know about this?! I only just found out about it by accident! But apparently Archbishop CHRISTODOULOS* of Athens, Primate of the Church of Greece, has been in Florida for a month waiting for a liver transplant: he has liver cancer and is “in critical condition.”

Holy Father, heavenly Physician of our souls and bodies, who have sent Your Only-begotten Son our Lord Jesus Christ to heal all our ailments and deliver us from death: visit and heal Your servant CHRISTODOULOS, granting him release from pain and restoration to health and vigor, that he may give thanks unto You and bless Your Holy Name, of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

(*–His name means Slave of Christ. I’ve heard it pronounced kris-TAH-doo-los.)
