MP Synod Approves Writing of New Orthodox Catechism
« on: June 28, 2008, 12:48:26 PM »
Moscow Patriarchate to write updated Orthodox Catechesis

Moscow, June 28, Interfax – The Bishops' Council considers it important to launch the work on the Russian Church modern catechesis (a book of Christian foundations outlined in brief – IF).

Besides, the decision of the Council, which is held in Moscow these days, found it necessary to hold systematic pastor seminars in the dioceses in order to improve theological knowledge and for priest to share their pastor experience.

The hierarchs also backed up the idea to set up diocesan courses to advance theological knowledge of clerics, monks and nuns and believed it necessary to lead systematic work with pilgrims who come to monasteries and churches to venerate shrines for the purpose of their theological education.

All laudable steps.

I hope this new (proposed) Catechism is eventually translated into English as I would find it interesting to read.

Anyone know, specifically, how much hours per day hermits/monks pray?.

Has anyone heard anything recently about this project? I wonder if they would be able to do better than Slobodskoy's The Law of God.

Instead of rescuing the Orthodox Cathecism, and instructing people according to it, they simply create a new one, where christian foundations are either omitted, or blurred, and replaced with modern ideology.

This action is one of many that show us the MP is nothing but the continuation of the rennovationist and protestant Living Church.

And the systematic destruction of the orthodox faith continues..... Lord Have Mercy!

IPC,
As it isn't published yet, you do not know that the Patriarchate will "omit... or blur... '[C]hristian foundations," "replaced with modern theology."  Why not be optimistic about what may be produced, supplementing our existing works?

Instead of rescuing the Orthodox Cathecism,

You mean the Orthodox Confession of St Met. Peter Movila?

YOU're the one continuing to protest the Hierarchy of the Russian Church.

Stop tearing down then....
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Can you cite any specific examples of this new Cathecism doing any of those things?

Yeah, you might want to wait until after they've written it! :police:
