Fr. Ted: “Memory Eternal, Archbishop Job of Chicago”

December 19, 2009

Fr. Ted Bobosh writes:

“I, like many, was stunned and saddened to learn today of the death of our Archbishop Job. The scandalous problems of the OCA in recent years had worn him down and he looked with greatest hope toward his impending retirement and turning his attention to Church music and iconography — things he really loved about the Church. He has entered into his rest.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!” (Revelation 14:13 RSV)

For me he represented a hope that the OCA could actually be what it had been gifted to be — Orthodoxy in and for Americans rather than an eternal diaspora of foreigners in a foreign land.”
