Coming across the two Tomoi of the Patriarchal Exarchate for Orthodox Parishes of Russian Tradition in Western Europe (i.e., the Phanar's Russians in Western Europe) , I noticed some interesting differences (emphasis added):
Patriarchal Tomos of 1931 http://exarchat.eu/spip.php?article857
Tomos of the Ecumenical Patriarch Photios II establishing the provisional Exarchate of the Russian parishes in Western Europe (02-17-1931)
To His Emimence Metropolitan Eulogius,
Having taken into account and carefully considered everything that was submitted by your Eminence and the bishops who are with you at our Great Church of Christ, based on the canonical rights of the latter as the Mother of Your Mother, the Russian Church, having studied the decisions of the General Diocesan Assembly concerning threatening and abnormal situation in which the Russian Orthodox parishes in Western Europe risque being found as to satisfy their spiritual needs and, in general, ecclesiastical, and in the issue of defense and the proper administration of their assets and properties, we have judged by synod, found opportune and decided:
According to the duty and right of the Most Holy Ecumenical Patriarchal Throne of care, actively involved in your current difficult circumstances and receive the parishes that have found themselves in a situation so difficult and dangerous, into the direct jurisdiction of the Most Holy Ecumenical Patriarchal Throne for the purpose of fortifying them and defending them.
For this purpose, by synodal order, we decided that all Russian Orthodox parishes in Europe, while maintaining without change nor decrease the independence they had hitherto as a particular Russian organization and freely administering their particular business now be considered as forming provisionally in the territory of Europe, a unique and special Exarchate of the Most Holy Ecumenical Patriarchal Throne directly dependent on it, being under its protection and led by it in the ecclesiastical domain where it is needed.
Similarly, we judged and decided that the provisional Russian Orthodox Exarchate thus established, continued as before to be entrusted to the central and supreme care and the administration of your Eminence to perform your duties with the title of Our Patriarchal Exarch, mentioning Our name in the liturgy and will be directly referenced to us, according to church order.
Therefore, in telling you this with joy, in response to the request of Your Eminence, We give you our blessings and order to continue, with the brothers in Christ with you, under our supreme ecclesiastical direction and in the capacity of Our Patriarchal Exarch, in accordance with the foregoing, the work of spiritual care and administration of Russian parishes in Europe.
Simultaneously, we call on Your Eminence and other reverend bishops and priests to whom was entrusted the direction of the parishes under your leadership, to ensure, as appropriate to the firmness in faith, in piety, for the preservation of traditions of the pious orthodox Russian people in the parishes, the right order of parish affairs and administration of property and assets of parishes;according at the same time to give special attention to this matter that the intervention of the Holy Church in quarrels and political debates be avoided and that the sacred pulpit is never turned into a forum for political purposes, as elsewhere did your Eminence, rightly, decide and proclaim.
Finally, after declaring the performance by us then of a provisional canonical settlement to the ecclesiastical situation of the Russian Orthodox parishes in Europe, regardless of whatsoever decisions or orders from whom whatsoever, can no longer have any force or value for these parishes, their clergy and their followers, except the holy Ecumenical Patriarchal Throne, we pray to the Lord to look down with mercy and quickly bring peace and unity to the Blessed Sister Church of Russia suffering beyond all measure and all the people all the pious orthodox and all Orthodox sisters Churches.
Giving, through Your Eminence, our blessings and prayers to all the pious parishes, we ask all the benefits of the Lord whose grace and infinite mercy be with Your Eminence.
Photios, Archbishop of Constantinople, Ecumenical Patriarch (Tserkovnyj Vestnik. 1931, No. 2).
EP Bartholomaios, however, had other ideas, when he issued a new Tomos (sort of like how he issued a new charter and constituion for the Greek Archdiocese of North and South America):
Patriarchal Tomos of 1999
Tomos of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, elavating the Archbishop to the rank of Exarchate of the Ecumenical Patriarchate (06/19/1999).
The Holy and Great Church of Christ, following in all things the sacred canons which accord to it the relentless solicitude in regard to the Plenitude carrying the name of Christ which is found outside the local territory of the other Holy Orthodox Churches and the ordination of their bishops (canon 28 of the 4th Ecumenical Council), decided, in response to the pious request of those interested, to organize as a loving Mother the affairs of the Archdiocese of Orthodox parishes of Russian tradition in Western Europe according to what is useful for them for salvation and to provide an orderly way as befits the Church of Christ according to the recommendation of the holy Apostle "let all things be done decently and in order" (1 Cor 14.40).
Searching the regulations which admit, paternally uniting in a matter, together and in a manner to please God, to the rule of strictness [akribeia (!)] those of philanthropy and compassion, in a manner not transforming neither softness into permissiveness nor severity into acrimony, according to the 3rd canon of the Ecumenical Council of Quinisexte, we with sympathy into the special problems of the Archdiocese of Orthodox parishes in Western Europe occdientale of Russian tradition, and have judged as necessary the special pastoral solicitude applied to them and the proposed revision of their statutes.
Having considered these issues from all points of view, we have established by writting regulations judged preferable, so that they would not weaken the zeal of the canonical strictness [akribi (!)], by reason of the pastoral economia, of those bishops who work in the pastoral service of these communities, nor that the link of their their love of the pastors of metropolitans and archbishops of the Most Holy Ecumenical Throne in Western Europe be upset, "so long as harmony prevails and that God be glorified by the Lord in the Spirit Father, Son and Holy Spirit "according to the 34th canon of the Holy Apostles.
His All Holiness is citing the last line, but alluding to the first half of said canon:
It behoves the Bishops of every nation to know the one among them who is the premier or chief, and to recognise him as their head, and to refrain from doing anything superfluous without his advice and approval: but, instead, each of them should do only whatever is necessitated by his own parish and by the territories under him. But let not even such a one do anything without the advice and consent and approval of all. For thus will there be concord, and God will be glorified through the Lord in Holy Spirit, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.http://www.holytrinitymission.org/books/english/cannons_apostles_rudder.htm
Hmmmm. I wonder who His All Holiness thnks is the premier or chief of Western Europe, Russian or not.
Thus the Most Holy apostolic and patriarchal Ecumenical Throne, having received the request and the proposal previously presented to His Eminence the Archbishop Sergius of Eukarpia , who is the head of the Archdiocese of the Orthodox parishes of Russian tradition in Western Europe and of the Archepiscopal Council that surround him, concerning the necessity to modify the present Statutes of this Archdiocese, taking care according to his duty and manifesting the apostolic solicitude for stability, harmony and the canonicity of how to conduct the affairs of this Archdiocese, has taken synodical notice and made known this:
1. This Archdiocese of the Orthodox parishes of Russian tradition in Western Europe, led by the Archbishop of Eukarpia Sergius, constituted in a Patriarchal Exarchate in accordance with the decisions of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of February 13, 1931, submitted directly to the Ecumenical Patriarch and his Holy and Sacred Synod, constitutes a unified ecclesiastical body, depending canonically and in an immediate manner on the Ecumenical Throne.
2. This Patriarchal Exarchate is subject to the Ecumenical Patriarchate and is administered by its own statutes, approved by the Ecumenical Throne, and maintaining the Russian liturgical ordo. As it should, in the development of statuts in force in the Patriarchal Exarchate the laws of countries where there are communities of the Exarchatewere were taken into consideration.
3. The Patriarchal Exarchate is governed by a single presiding Bishop, having the rank and title of Archbishop-Patriarchal Exarch of the Russian Orthodox parishes in Western Europe and provides the canonically immediate link between the Ecumenical Throne and the communities composing this Patriarchal Exarchate.
The Archbishop is the head of the Patriarchal Exarchate possesssing jurisdiction under the divine and holy canons over all communities of the Exarchate and is empowered to give canonical leave, to receive, to appoint and authorize for an ecclesiastical service any cleric or layman subject to his jurisdiction.
4. Within the organization of ecclesiastical life in Western Europe, the Patriarchal Exarch-Archbishop consults with the Metropolitan of France who sits in this country.
i.e. the Greek Metropolitan of France, the one His All Holiness had in mind above when Apostoic Canon 34 was mentioned.
Consultation between the Archbishop and the head of each of the hierarchys of the Ecumenical Throne is made directly and according to the same rules of communication between them, in regard of respect for the ecclesiastical jurisdiction and administrative of one to the other.
5. In liturgical celebrations according to the ordo in force and [established] usage:
The Archbishop commemorates the name of the Ecumenical Patriarch,
The Auxiliary Bishops commemorate the Ecumenical Patriarch and Archbishop,
The parish clergy commemorate, according to Russian tradition, the Ecumenical Patriarch and the Archbishop and his Auxiliary Bishop, to the extent that the later presides at the celebration.
6. The election of the Archbishop-Patriarchal Exarch, as well as auxiliary bishops, is done in conformity with the statutes that the Ecumenical Patriarch has approved and blessed, and according to canonical order by which these elections are done by the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate which takes into consideration the proposals of the clerical-lay Assembly of the Exarchate.
7.The operation of the Episcopal Council, the General Assembly and Archepiscopal Council of the Patriarchal Exarchate is done under the chairmanship of the Archbishop-Patriarchal Exarch in accordance with the statuts in force and approved by the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
Extraordinary General Meetings of the Patriarchal Exarchate can be presided by the Metropolitan of France, following a request from the Exarchate and by a special delegation of the Ecumenical Patriarch.
8. The Russian Orthodox Theological Institute of St. Sergius constitutes an inseparable part of this Patriarchal Exarchate and is, therefore, under the immediate supervision of the Archbishop who is at the head of the Exarchate.
And with that, canonically by the present Tomos, as in the manner of paternal recommendation, we recall "persist and hold the Orthodox traditions," as the foundations of truth and dogma; so this, which holds for what one is ignorant of or taken in doubt: "Ask your father and he will tell thee, thy elders and they will tell you" (Deut 32.7) and we guarantee that the same safety is not even thinking on anything more than one must, for not thinking too much, that one would not want to prevail over the other, not to base assurance on his own thinking, rather to seek in humility that which is the good and perfect will of the Lord.
Above all this we bless the new Exarchate-Archdiocese of Orthodox parishes of Russian tradition in Western Europe and its most honored Exarch, His Eminence the Archbishop of Eukarpia Monseigneur Sergius, as well as their Excellencies the Bishops who accompanying him, the holy priesthood, the priests sanctified by the Lord sanctified and the chosen people of God; we invoke in abondance the blessings of our God and Savior Jesus Christ and we want that the Patriarchal Exarchate, on the one hand, will continue and grow for the glory of God and the salvation of the world; and, on the other hand, our blessed brothers, both bishops and priests and monks as to the faithful bearers of the the name of Christ, we wish all blessing of the Lord, as well as peace and joy to the highest degree, the fruit of his struggles for Christ and His Orthodox faith.
As a result of which, in faith and guarantee of this, the present Patriarchal and Synodical Tomos was made by codification, transcribed and signed in This [sic] holy codex of our great Church of Christ, also otherwise sent, in identical terms and without change, and delivered to the aforesaid to be deposited in the archives by title as a reminder forever.
The year of grace 1999, the 19th of June. Indiction 7.
† Bartholomew of Constantinople
[Members of the Holy Synod]
No idea that Russia is their Mother Church, nor that the situation is provisional and brought on by exceptional circumstances. No, it is only seen as a concession due to the Phanar's largesse that they are not placed under the Greek Metropolitan of France, the "head" of the Church there.
