  5. Most incredible spiritual Father, your love for Christ is an example to all of us. You truly lead by example, your kindness ,humble life and passion for Christ will forever be remembered. “Blessed always be the road which you travel on today , as it is prepared for you a place of eternal rest” , May your memory be internal ,RIP our beloved bishop and brother in Christ.

  6. So, so, so sad, more so that he has left us in the struggle. Everytime an elder ‘passes on’, it is important for us to reflect on “that which he actually passes on? – RESPONSIBILITY. And as a pastor, we should even worry more of ourselves that he has tasked us so early. In my view, he has done much of what he needed to, but shall we afford to make his (our Orthodox) team not to lose the race? That is our challenge, not his now! RIP your Grace.

  7. May our Lord have mercy on the precious flock of Kisumu and all of Kenya as the Orthodox world grieves our separation between us and our reposed shepherd +HG Athanasius. May +HG Athanasius intercede for us all. Amen.
