Elias Charcour of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church was Archbishop of Akko, Haifa, Nazareth and all Galilea from 2006 to 2014. Reasons for his retirement are unclear.
In 1984 he wrote the autobiographical Blood Brothers. An excerpt: http://assets.bakerpublishinggroup.com/processed/book-resources/files/Excerpt_9780801015731.pdf?1368187836
I received this letter from him a few years later.
What has changed?
