Let's hope this obituary is premature

St. Clement of Alexandria

In 451 AD, the Council of Chalcedon declared the patriarchal See of Alexandria third in esteem behind only Rome and Constantinople.  This actually diminished Alexandria's rank, since before Chalcedon, the See of Alexandria had stood second behind only Rome.  Now, its very existence is endangered.   Read Robert Spencer's informative and touching elegy here.

St. Clement of Alexandria, pray for us.
