Greek media reported that the Holy Synod of the Patriarchate of Constantinople adopted a decision on granting the status of canonical churches self-proclaimed “Kiev Patriarchate and Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.” Doctor of Church history, candidate of theology, Professor Vladislav parsley believes that in this way the Patriarch of Constantinople himself has rendered a verdict and became a partner split.
- “Kiev Patriarchate”: Anathema on Filaret uncanonical, repentance is not needed autocephaly
- Ukrainian autocephaly what happens
- And whether autocephaly?
- Ukrainian autocephaly: a sensible point of view prevailed over the irritated position
- Someone in the Ukraine need autocephaly and what’s going on
Information about recognition of canonical churches, “Kiev Patriarchate and Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church,” the first published edition of the Greek Orthodoxy.info. The message is not yet confirmed officially, but considering how the media is close to Fanaru, we may think that it is correct.
Greek news Agency Romfea also confirms that Filaret Denisenko and Macarius, Maletić recognized as legitimate bishops. In the opinion of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, they are no longer schismatics.
This decision says more about the Constantinople Patriarchate and that the claim to the role of referee, it is a serious breach of the canons. And how can be judge the one who is by definition a rogue?
What makes Constantinople by invading the canonical space of the Russian Church is robbery. Without any vowel congregational consideration, he recognizes the lawful schismatic Bishop. Thus the Patriarch Bartholomew and his ilk are subject to the canonical rules, which is considered schismatic whosoever communicates with the dissenters.
I think that the Patriarch of Constantinople and others themselves brought myself here sentence. From the Synod of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, no one expected Thomas. There have been suggestions that most likely the Synod will pave the way to him, and after meeting Tomos will give Patriarch Bartholomew on the basis of a Synodal decision. It seemed more likely that they will open in Ukraine a Metropolitan or Exarchate. But they went to a frontal attack. Their chosen path is a completely unambiguous charges against them that they themselves become complicit in the split.
In fact, Constantinople has taken responsibility for what is happening now in Ukraine. Going on, I’m afraid, will be a lot of bad things, even unto bloodshed. We probably enter a period of serious testing. After the lukewarm complacent period, the Lord visited us.
