Heyas. I am reading about Patriarch Kirill on wikipedia and it really shows him in a very negative light. Is there a website thats a bit more neutral? English please :)

I finally got around to reading it.  What would you say isn't neutral about it - the fact that he has no real accomplishments to speak of other than a few trumped up Soviet style awards, praises Lukashenko, sees Putin as a miracle of God and has been mired in controversy the last year or so?  That's about as neutral as you can get - search around and you can find much worse.  Third Rome FTW!

Don't worry; within 30 years, there is a 98% chance that His Holiness will have died and Met. Hilarion will have replaced him, to the delight of the whole Orthodox world.

EDIT: And there's probably a 50% chance it will happen at the close of 10 years, judging by the Patriarch's age.

Well, I dont want him to die, but repent, as we all should do. That being said, I've read some of Met. hilarion's stuff and he seems pretty darn great.

He is pretty old, but met. Hilarion isnt any spring chicken.
