      H.E. Mor Severius Saliba Tuma, the first metropolitan of Zahle, Lebananon,
      entered into eternal rest, succumbing to a tumor in the brain. His Eminence
      was born in the city of Qamishli in Syria on Nov 21, 1969. His theological
      education was at the Patriarchal Seminary in Damascus. In 1989 he was
      tonsured a monk and in 1992 was ordained priest. From 1994-98 he was engaged
      in doctoral research at the Oriental Institute in Rome. He returned to
      Damascus and became vicar there. On May 14, 2000, he was consecrated the
      first Metropolitan for the Archdiocese of Zahle in Lebanon by H.H. Moran Mor
      Ignatius Zakka I at the Sts. Peter & Paul's Patriarchal Cathedral at
      Damascus. This diocese was created out of the Beirut diocese.

      During the past few days Mor Severius had lapsed into a comma. The mortal
      remains will be laid to rest at 5 pm on 29th July at the St. George Church,
      Zahle, Lebanon.
