No longer a diocesan bishop

I suppose this article and, presumably, those on other Antiochian dioceses, needs to be updated to reflect the decision of the Holy Synod of Antioch to demote all diocesan bishops of their Patriarchate to auxiliary bishops. --Fr Lev 00:08, March 18, 2009 (UTC)

It's really not quite clear what it all means and remains somewhat ambiguous for the time being. We'll see! —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 01:22, March 19, 2009 (UTC)
More specifically: while the bishops have been classified as being "under the authority" of the Metropolitan, there has been nothing whatsoever to suggest that the status of any dioceses have been changed (which is part of what makes all this so peculiar.) In this instance, it appears that the bishop continues to carry the title "of Los Angeles and the West." --Paterakis 19:05, March 20, 2009 (UTC)
