New Patriarch of Antioch and the East elected

Not even two weeks have passed since Ignatius IV, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, reposed.  But now the Antiochians in the Middle East and in all the world have a reason to turn their sorrow into joy:  A new Patriarch has been elected, who will take the name John X.  Many years to the new Patriarch.  He certainly has big shoes to fill and is coming into a situation (i.e. Syria's civil war) which will no doubt test him on many levels.  For a biography of His Beatitude, go here.

Εις πολλα ετη, Δεσποτα!
