Metropolitan Laurus, who played a key role in healing an 80-year schism between the Russian Orthodox Church and an offshoot set up abroad following the Bolshevik Revolution, was found dead Sunday. He was 80.

Laurus, head of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, was found dead in his residence at the Holy Trinity Monastery in rural Jordanville, N.Y., about 60 miles northwest of Albany, according to the Synod of Bishops in Moscow. He had been feeling ill for several days.

My condolences to his family and parishioners.
