Christos Voskrese!

Slava Bogu!

Many Years!
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

This vicarite is sort of like an ordinate in the RCC (Such as the Anglicans have recently been placed under)?

This is probably a god move in that it will allow for WR clergy and laity to have a greater amount of autonomy.   
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

With no missions or priests on mainland Australia, and no parish churches, the WR at least in Australian ROCOR has some huge hurdles to overcome, not the least having only one Australian WR priest living full-time in Australia.  English language Eastern-rite missions including Australian's only Indigenous Aboriginal  Orthodox Mission and Aboriginal priest outside the national capital, and most metropolitan capitals having English language parishes or missions, all with close relationship to the local Deans and Diocese are an established feature of Russian Church life in Australia.

To the Russians abroad it has been granted to shine in the whole world  the light of Orthodoxy, so that other peoples, seeing their good deeds, might glorify our Father in Heaven, and thus obtain salvation

I see that meeting with Antiochian WR clergy is bearing some fruit. :)

Cool!
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
