On 9/22 September 2016 there was held the funeral of Bishop Michael of Nora, GOC bishop on  Sardinia, Italy,-( a bishop of the GOC-Greece) in the Monastery of Sts. Киприана и Иустины (Фили, Аттика). Sts. Cyprian and Justina (Fili, Attica, Greece).

В последние годы Его Преосвященство терпеливо нес свой крест тяжелой болезни, однако за несколько месяцев до его кончины состояние здоровья владыки серьезно ухудшилось, и умер он незадолго до полуночи во вторник 13 сентября 2016 г.

In recent years, His Holiness Bishop Michael, patiently bore his cross of serious illness, but a few months before his death, the health of His Grace had seriously deteriorated, and he died shortly before midnight on Tuesday 13 September 2016



Тело почившего прибыло в Грецию на самолете, и во второй половине дня в четверг, в день памяти святых праведных Иоакима и Анны, в обители Свв.

The body of the deceased came to Greece by plane, and in the afternoon on Thursday, the feast day of the Holy and Righteous Joachim and Anna, in the monastery of Sts. Киприана и Иустины монахи исполнили чин погребения.

of Sts. Cyprian and Justina, the  monks performed the rite of burial.



В службе погребения участвовали, во главе с Архиепископом Каллиником, Митрополиты Киприан Оропосский и Филийский, Геронтий Пирейский и Саламинский, Хризостом Аттикийский и Филийский и Фотий Димитриадский, а также епископ Климент Гардикийский, епископ Софроний Сучавский из Старостильной Румынской Церкви и множество священников и диаконов.

The burial service was attended by many, and was led by Archbishop Kallinikos, Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili, and bishops: Gerontius of  Piraeus and Salamis, Chrysostomos of Attikiysky and Fili, and Photios of Dimitriadsky and Bishop Clement Gardikiysky, Bishop Sophronius of Suceava Old Calendar Romanian Church and by many priests and deacons.



Кроме того, было много монахов, монахинь и простых верующих, которые пришли попрощаться с известным им епископом Михаилом Норийским, посещавшим много раз Грецию.

In addition, there were many monks, nuns and ordinary faithful who came to say goodbye to their famous Bishop Michael of Nora, who had visited Greece many times.



Погребальное слово было произнесено епископом Климентом Гардикийским, в котором он сказал о совместной с Грецией борьбе покойного иерарха за истинную веру в Сардинии, а также о его добродетелях и талантах, пожелав ему вечный покой для блаженной души.

 The funeral eulogy  was preached  by Bishop Clement of Gardikiyskim, in which he spoke  about the joint struggle in Greece [ to help promote the unity of the Old Calendarists] of the late hierarch of the True Faith in Sardinia, as well as about his virtues and talents, and wishing him Eternal Rest with the souls of the blessed.



Затем тело покойного было перенесено священниками на кладбище монастыря, где и было погребено.

Then the body of the deceased was  transferred by the priests, to the monastery cemetery, where he was buried.



После погребения в монастыре состоялось поминальное угощение, во время которого Митрополит Киприан отметил опыт бывших посещений прошлых лет Сардинии, а также пожелал благополучного продолжения миссионерской деятельности Церкви.

 After the burial,  in the monastery there was held a memorial meal, during which Metropolitan Cyprian spoke about  his experiences of his past visits in the last  number of years to Sardinia, and he wished a successful continuation of the missionary activity of the Church there.

Bless!  This is in Greek, but there are several pictures.  The sisters in Sweden sent it to us and added this comment: "The Greek GOC Bishops were there, but also Bishop Sofronie from Romania. Bishop Michael would go to Greece at least twice a year: once for the Feast of Sts. Cyprian and Justina and once for the secondary feast of the Convent of the Holy Angels, so he was well loved and known by all the Hierarchs and faithful."
