Georgian churches in Romania
« on: October 18, 2012, 02:47:15 AM »
I recently read that Georgians are building their own churches in Romania. Are they part of Georgian patriarchate or do they work just like the Russian churches in Jerusalem i.e. under local bishop?
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

The church I attend is dedicated to a Georgian Saint, the Gospel usually is read in Georgian too (alongside Polish), for a month we had a Georgian deacon, our pastor is a Georgiaphile and it is visited by Georgian bishops or priests at least twice a year. It still operates under the POC cathedral parish.

Just saying.

The Romanians barely tolerate this from the Serbians and don't tolerate it at all from the Greeks, Russians or Bulgarians.  I'd imagine it would be like the Russian Church in Jerusalem, especially given the example of St. Antim, a Georgian saint who served in the Romanian Church.
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

"Barely tolerate this from the Serbians"?!? All the Serbs in Romania (Caras-Severin, Timis, Arad) are under Serbian jurisdiction with no interference from the Romanian Church. But their numbers are both larger plus they have a historic presence in those regions that neither the Bulgarians or Russians have. Most Bulgaroians in RM are RC, as they converted in the 18th century or earlier IIRC from Paulicianism. Russians proper are  a;most inexistent. I mean Great Russians. Except from the Old Believers but they have their own church.

I am not sure. In Kyiv however, there seem to be Georgian liturgies in the UOC-MP.
