Kalabrijsky and Ageliki Metropolitan Ambrose (Greek Orthodox Church) criticized the actions of Patriarch Bartholomew about the Church situation in Ukraine and warned against further schisms in the Orthodox world. Reported Information-enlightenment Department of the UOC with reference to the Greek Church news Agency “Romfea”.
Metropolitan Ambrose in his address called a step in the wrong actions of the Patriarch of Constantinople in Ukraine, where, as Bishop notes, “it is assumed that the schismatic Ukrainian Church needs to get recognition from the Ecumenical Patriarchate”.
“We know very little so many problems, so our Patriarch still is on the verge Church the collision of the Ecumenical Patriarchate with the great Russian Church. At our door there is a new schism! If you add to it and internal disputes (…), the Church situation in our time are becoming extremely tragic,” said Metropolitan Calabrisi and Ageliki.
The Hierarch of the Greek Orthodox Church said that Ecumenical Patriarch is supposed to symbolize the unity in the Orthodox world, to settle disputes and conflicts between the local churches and Church leaders, however, apparently, Patriarch Bartholomew has set itself the inverse problem.
Metropolitan reproaches Patriarch Bartholomew that he has ceased to be a guarantor of Church unity, and by all means tries to increase its influence in the Orthodox world.
