In Memoriam: Fr. Petroniu Tanase

The former abbot of the Romanian-speaking Skete of St. John the Baptist on Mount Athos, Protosingel Petroniu (Tanase), fell asleep in the Lord today. Fr. Petroniu, born in Neamt County in Romania, was a monk at the Neamts Monastery and studied theology, mathematics, and philosophy before leaving for Mount Athos in 1978. He served as abbot of Prodromou until his recent retirement, at which time he was replaced by Hieromonk Atanasie (Floroiu). May his memory be eternal! Veşnica pomenire! More here.
