This funeral homily was given by Bishop BASIL (Essey) on the themes of 'how to preach the Gospel' and 'what is a funeral.' The November 2023 funeral, which took place on the Feast of St. Andrew, the First-Called Apostle, was for Cassiane Leigh Trenham, the mother of Fr. Josiah Trenham of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. May her memory be eternal.
