Teoctist

▪ 2008
Toader Arapasu  Romanian prelate
born Feb. 7, 1915 , Tocileni, Rom.

died July 30, 2007, Bucharest, Rom.
was patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church from 1986; he was also the first head of an Orthodox church to host the Roman Catholic pontiff (during Pope John Paul II's visit to Romania in 1999). He entered a monastery in 1928 and took the name Teoctist in 1935 when he was tonsured as a monk. After being ordained a priest in 1945, he rose steadily though the church hierarchy. The Romanian Orthodox Church was traditionally loyal to the country's government, and Teoctist was particularly enthusiastic in his allegiance to dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Teoctist retired to a monastery after Ceausescu was overthrown in late December 1989 but was reinstated as patriarch in April 1990.
