His Holiness Patriarch Alexei II is not dead

It would appear that, while news of Patriarch Alexei's death has been spreading rapidly, the Patriarch himself seems to be under the impression that he is, in fact, alive.

Continued prayers.

It is very sad. Perhaps not unexpected that things would be tried (though I didn't expect this!), but still so sad on what should be an occasion of great rejoicing.

Prayers.

Oh well. He's alive and kicking. Whether the reunion is right or wrong, those who have taken part in this rumour-spreading have done nothing to help the credibility of their position. I can imagine that there are opponents to the reunion who have reasoned views on the matter who feel very much betrayed by this action.

Indeed, prayers.
