      THE FIRST HIERARCH HOSPITALIZED - UPDATED!

      The First Hierarch in the Hospital

      Tuesday, 3 December: The First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church
      Outside of Russia, His Eminence Metropolitan Laurus, was hospitalized.

      Following the celebrations in San Francisco and the Autumnal Session of
      the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia,
      Vladyka Metropolitan returned to Holy Trinity Monastery. His advisors,
      seeing his fatigue and weakness, insisted that the First Hierarch rest,
      and a week and a half ago he departed for Florida for several days. In
      Florida, Vladyka began to experience pains in his chest, and by Friday
      they were sufficiently strong that he was obliged to go to the
      hospital, where he spent three days. On Monday, 2 December,
      Metropolitan Laurus returned to Jordanville, and a day later, his
      temperature increased and he was once again hospitalized.

      Physicians are in the process of diagnosing his problem. Vladyka
      Metropolitan is very weak and regrets that he could not serve in
      Syracuse, at the Church of the Entrance into the Temple of the
      Most-Holy Mother of God, and will likely not fly to Seattle for the
      feast day to St. Nicholas Cathedral.

      The First Hierarch asks prayers of the faithful flock of the Church of
      Christ.

      Friday, 6 December: Vladyka Metropolitan remains in the hospital. On
      the day of the Entrance of the Most-Holy Mother of God into the Temple,
      he was able to partake of the Holy Gifts. Doctors are still unable to
      determine the cause of his pain and temperature. Churches of the
      Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia are fervently praying for the
      health of the First Hierarch.

      Monday, 9 December:Vladyka Metropolitan is reportedly feeling better.
      The chest pains have disappeared, as has his temperature. Doctors in
      the local hospital (Cooperstown, NY), found no serious problems and
      feel that Metropolitan Laurus' condition is a result of fatigue. This
      morning, accompanied by Protodeacon Victor Lokhmatov, Vladyka
      Metropolitan departed by car to Boston to see his own
      physician-specialists. Vladyka Laurus arrived in Boston in the early
      afternoon and he was admitted to the hospital for rest and further
      examination. Vladyka Metropolitan thanks everyone who prayed for him
      and asks for their continued prayers.

      In Christ,
