Cyprus' Orthodox Church expands Holy Synod from 7 to 17 bishops

According to the article, Archbishop Chrysostomos II said the new constitution 'gives the church full autonomy' and 'simplifies the way archbishops are elected.'

My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

It didn't have full autonomy beforehand?  ???
