CWN Editor's Note: The Syriac Orthodox Church is among the Oriental Orthodox churches that ceased to be in full communion with the Holy See following the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon (451). Born in 1965, Patriarch Ignatius Aphrem II has led the Damascus-based church since 2014. He received his licentiate and doctoral degrees from a Catholic institution (St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Ireland).
