The speaker of the Kyiv Patriarchate yevstratii Zoria
According to Eustratius Zorya, there is nothing surprising in the fact that Filaret called the “father superior” of the Kiev-Pechersk and Pochaev Laurel.
The head of the UOC KP really is a “father superior” of the Kiev-Pechersk and Pochaev Laurel, said in Facebook the speaker of the Kyiv Patriarchate yevstratii Zoria.
He said that the laurels are the “stauropegic monasteries of the Kiev Throne” according to the resolutions of the UOC Council of 1991 and the “Cathedral” of the UOC-KP 1993. “Determining this fact, the full title of the Primate is just a statement of what until now has been,” wrote dawn.
The speaker of the UOC-KP believes that such statements “did not led to any disturbances or problems in the past – will not result in the future.”
In the objective reality and the Kiev-Pechersk (1991), and the Pochayiv Lavra (since 1997) have the status of stavropigio and canonically directly subject to the jurisdiction of his Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. At the moment, so is Metropolitan Onufry. And titulate Filaret is virtual reality.
This reminded Zor in the comments to the post Sergey Chaplin in Facebook one of the readers of the novel Voitkov: in both its laurels during the service to commemorate not Filaret, Metropolitan Onufriy. And that he is considered the Primate of the monks of these two monasteries. Voitkov said that Filaret is not the father superior of Kiev-Pechersk and Pochaev Laurel. “And Kiev and Pochaev NOT recognize him as their father superior, are commemorated during the Liturgy. Why impose itself and engage in self-deception,” wrote an opponent of the speaker of the UOC-KP. He suggested that the Kyiv Patriarchate is “primarily interested in territory,” not real people.
The Kyiv Patriarchate was established in 1992. The first decision referred to by the Zorya, adopted at its meeting in November 1991, the Council of the UOC. The text quoted by speaker of the UOC-KP, for the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. In the decision of the father superior of Kiev-Pechersk and Pochaev Laurel named his Beatitude Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine.
Recall, 20 October 2018, on the “Holy Synod” of the UOC-KP was introduced the full and abridged form of the title “Primate” Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyiv Patriarchate. Members of the “Synod” endorsed such full title: “his Holiness and Beatitude (name), Archbishop and Metropolitan of Kiev – Mother of Russian cities, Ukraine, Patriarch of Rus-Ukraine, the Holy Dormition Kiev-Pechersk and Pochaev Laurel father superior”.
