A book written St. Nektarios about the schism
« on: December 06, 2005, 12:21:49 AM »
I was reading a biography (really, a novelized biography) of St. Nektarios that was translated into english, and it referenced a 2-volume work of his on the great schism.  The premise (that the biographer claims) is that St. Nektarios was sick and tired of the encyclicals from Rome throughout history that demanded that the East accept Roman primacy, and different other "misconceptions" about who caused the schism, the underlying factors, etc. that were "propogated" by Rome.

I am wondering if any of the Greek-speaking brethren here have either read the book or heard of it... (I assume it is only in Greek).  If you have, what are your impressions of it?
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I just stumbled upon this thread (from days long ago) and am wondering if anyone could answer my question.
