DEATH OF ALEXIUS II: ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, "A MAN OF GREAT STATURE"

Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, expressed deep sadness upon the death of Alexius II, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia. "With deep sadness we have received the news of the death of Patriarch Alexius II," reads a statement released today by the Anglican Communion Office in London. "He was a leader of great stature, with a huge experience, determination and courage, who firmly led his Church at a time of the Russian history marked by deep changes and challenges. We will remember him even as a friend of many outside his Church and, last but not least, as a friend of mine and of other members of the English Church. We will keep him and the whole Russian Orthodox Church in our prayers."
