Addis Ababa: The latest information and picture of detained Patriarch Abune Antonios of Eritrea has been received by OCP News Service.

One of the Eritrean Orthodox faithful was recently able to visit Patriarch Abune Antonios in Asmara where he is kept house arrested. The secret visit was arranged  and managed to take a pic by mobile phone.  This pic was taken before 6 months.  Patriarch Abune Antonios have satisfactory health conditions for the moment. The Patriarch is worried about the church and faithful. The Patriarch spends most of the time in prayers.

It was also reported earlier that Patriarch Antonios had requested the authorities several times to shift his location to one of the Orthodox monasteries in the country but the request was never granted. He is still detained in an unknown location in Asmara. The place of detention has not been revealed and it is believed to be a military cantonment area.

Let us all pray for the safety of the Patriarch and  the persecuted Christians in Eritrea.
