The head of the UOC-KP Filaret Denisenko.
Filaret “doing everything possible to recent events worked in his favor, forcing, or rather trying to impose on others, their personal interests and agenda.”
Editor of the Greek site Orthodoxia.info Andreas Loudaros believes that, as history shows, all visionaries share one thing in common – in most cases, they sacrificed themselves to see how their dream becomes a reality, what can be said about the leader of the UOC-KP Filaret.
According to the journalist, after the removal of the anathema of Constantinople with a 90-year-old Hierarch he began to behave like you don’t understand what happened, or pretends not to understand.
“At first he said he is and will remain the “Patriarch,” writes Loudaros. – Then he convened his Synod and announced that takes a step back, taking the rank of Archbishop for external use, but within the country will carry the title of Patriarch. And now he says that he has informed his clergy that during worship we need to remember the name of the Ecumenical Patriarch”.
The journalist notes that instead to allow the Ecumenical Patriarchate to choose the path that will help to restore the balance and peace in Ukraine, Filaret “doing everything possible to recent events worked in his favor, forcing, or rather trying to impose on others, their personal interests and agenda.”
The Church has its own rules, constraints and mechanisms, as well as history and memory, what can not be forgotten, writing to the Church for help, and “if someone doesn’t like the idea to follow these rules, they can stay outside the Church and say anything,” reads the article.
“In addition, the text of the decision on the lifting of anathemas and reinstatement there is no hint of recognition of the Kyiv Patriarchate. And that is what must first be aware of itself Filaret”, – summed up the chief editor of the authoritative Greek portal, adding that he would like to Filaret recalled that for centuries the story is richly rewarded with a crown of glory those who chose the victim, not those who could not withstand its weight.
We will remind, the head of the UOC KP retains the title “Patriarch”, despite the fact that, in accordance with the decisions of the Synod of the Church of Constantinople on 11 October, he was rehabilitated as a Metropolitan. As explained by the yevstratiy Zorya, the title Filaret has expanded and now he, and “Archbishop” and “Metropolitan” and “Patriarch”.
