The Abbot of the Monastery of Saint John the Forerunner, Metropolitan Benedict of Diocaesarea, offered a Trisagion service for the rest of the soul of Metropolitan of Pelusium, Niphon, on Sunday, December 13, 2020.
It should be noted that Metropolitan Benedict of Diocaesarea is the hierarch of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem and has longstanding spiritual bonds with the Patriarchate of Alexandria and the late hierarch.
More specifically, the Metropolitan of Diocaesarea presided over the Divine Liturgy for the feast of Saint Andrew the First-Called at the Monastery of Saint John the Forerunner in Amman, Jordan, on December 13. After the Divine Liturgy, the Metropolitan performed a memorial service for the rest of the souls of the late fathers and brothers: Metropolitan Niphon of Pelusium, Elder Epiphanius of Mylopotamos and Elder Spyridon of Mikragianna.
Finally, the Metropolitan performed the blessing of the waters for the month of December, wishing that the Son and Word of God support humankind, especially those in pain and tormented by the terrible temptation.
