Keep trying to wrap that pretty bow around this turd of a document, Maria. Unless you want to take the time to read it, in which case I suppose you might realise you'd better stop.
Pretty bow? I have not said that this encyclical is pretty. The gossip in it is simply atrocious.
You're right, what I said was a gross mischaracterization, and I apologize
No problem. I am beginning to wonder if the two bishops aren't agent provocateurs.
They might join the GOC since they've already anathematized the EP and Church of Greece.

Thus everyone can perceive how, by being outside the Church, every kind of instability that is not consistent with the truth of the eternal Logos of God can infiltrate easily, and also how uncritical zealotism and soul-destroying Ecumenism comprise the two sides of the same coin of fallacy, which cuts one off from communion with the living God.
A lot can change in 5 years.
Since Met. Seraphim is not taken seriously by most people, chances are that he will find himself as a lone hierarch or a hermit within five years unless he also repents. He seems to be closing all doors.
Christ is Risen!
The GOC doesn't want Met. Seraphim for his anti-Catholic and anti-ecumenist stance.
