Your Beatitude,

Beloved in the Lord Brother and Concelebrant at God’s Altar,

I have been grieved to learn about the demise of Protopresbyter Leonid Kishkovsky, whom I knew personally and with whom I worked at various inter-church forums for fifty years. I express my sincere condolences to his spouse, Matushka Alexandra, and to his children and grandchildren.

I am praying to the All-Merciful Lord that He may establish the soul of the recently deceased steward of the Church in the eternal mansions, in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, and give spiritual strength to all those who are mourning this loss.

With brotherly love in the Lord, 

+KIRILL

PATRIARCH OF MOSCOW AND ALL RUSSIA
