Greetings in the name of the Lord:

We all deeply saddened by hearing the sleep in peace of our beloved Metropolitan Mar Narsai D’ Baz. It is a great lost to our Church and Assyrian national group. Yet we thank God for giving His beatitude to us for so many years and we thank our beloved Church for rearing great men like the late Mar Narsai. I want to take this opportunity to extend my sympathy to our Holy Father Mar Dinkha the VI Catholicos Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East and to all the beloved prelates members of the Holy Synod. My heart goes out to all the members of the D’Baz family specially my brother in priesthood Aprem D,Baz. His Beatitude was a strong Pillar in the Holy Church and a place of refuge for all of us at the time of need therefore I want to extend my condolences to all my beloved clergy of the Assyrian Church of the east.

I pray our almighty God will bestow His comforting in the broken hearts of all of us at this time of bereavement and will strengthen us to carry the heavy burden of the sleeping in peace of his beatitude Mar Narsai D’Baz brought about.
