In his last “residence”, in the sacred monastery of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos in Trichonis, rests Metropolitan of Aetolia and Acarnania Kosmas, who lost the battle with the coronavirus on Monday 3 December.
The Holy Father was admitted to the Evangelismos Hospital, where he was taken in serious condition and intubated. However, despite the inhuman efforts of the doctors, it was not possible to save the priest.
The funeral took place in Mesolonghi, in the church of Agios Spyridonas. Funeral ceremony held and led Metropolitan Nafpaktos Ieroteros (Μητροπολίτη Ναυπάκτου Ιερόθερος), we were also present metropolitan Piraeus Serafim (Μητροπολιτών Πειραιώς Σεραφείμ) and Mesogiou and Lavreotikis Nikolaos (Μεσογαίας και Λαυρεωτικής, Νικολάος).
More than 1000 people accompanied the deceased on his last journey, chanting: “Holy, worthy and immortal.”
There were few people inside the temple due to measures to combat the coronavirus, but outside of it there was a real pandemonium.
