July 30, 2007- will always remain a mourning day for all Christians, one day
which we shall forever bear in our souls, one gloomy day in which an
outstanding representative of Orthodoxy – Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox
Church – made his way to everlastingness.
Having joined monarchal life at an early age, the Patriarch to be has
gradually served all hierarchical church ladders to finally reach the highest
position and supreme dignity in the Romanian Orthodox Church.
During his more than 20 years as head of the Romanian Orthodox Church,
through never lasting strains, the Patriarch Teoctist has successfully managed to
inflict the Church as the most reliable institution for the Romanian people.
Advocate for faith to all Romanians, he revived the Metropolitan Church of
Basarabia in the early 90’s, and established the Romanian Orthodox Metropolitan
Church for Central and Northern, as well as Occidental and Meridional Europe
as well the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate for Romanian people in Hungary and
Serbia.
During his two decades as a Patriarch, under the guidance of his Holiness
Teoctist, 12 new patriarchates, 400 monasteries, and almost 2000 holy places
emerged.
The outmost evidence for the Patriarch’s vision of Christian union was the
Holy Father Pope John Paul the 2nd’s visit to Bucharest in May 1999, Romania
being the first orthodox country in the world that enjoyed the visit of a Pope.
Unpretentious and a steady promoter of tenderness, his Holiness Father
Teoctist would leave behind his legacy – an exemplary life – to the hierarchs of
Romanian orthodoxy, to all real Christians, together with the dream he so
ardently fought for: People’s Salvation Cathedral, one „longing that intensifies
as time goes by”.
As a godly homage, Romfilatelia, the specialized company in editing and
trading Romanian postage stamps, introduces into circulation the philatelic issue
IN MEMORIAM FATHER TEOCTIST, PATRIARCH OF THE ROMANIAN
ORTHODOX CHURCH (1986- 2007).
