Romanian Patriarch sends condolences to the Bulgarian Church after the death of Patriarch Neophyte

His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel of Romania sent condolences to the Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church following the death of Patriarch Neophyte.

Bucharest, 14 March 2024

To the Holy Synod of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church

It is with deep sorrow that we learned about the passing away, after battling a long illness, of our beloved brother in Christ, Metropolitan of Sofia and Patriarch of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, Neophyte of blessed memory, a venerable and well-known personality of contemporary Orthodoxy.

We share the grief caused by this loss, and on behalf of the hierarchs, clergy, and faithful of the Romanian Orthodox Church, we offer fraternal condolences to the members of the Holy Synod and to the entire Church of Bulgaria.

We pray Christ, our Lord, the One Who is the resurrection and the life (John 11:25), to rest the soul of Patriarch Neophyte with the righteous ones in the light, peace and love of the Most Holy Trinity.

May his memory be eternal from generation to generation!

Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church
