Articles and Publications - Information for consideration Wednesday, 13 July 2011

Several of our priests received the following:

-------------------------

No. 06.24.11
June 3/16 , 2011
Icon of the Most Holy Theotokos "Surety of Sinners"

Dear Fr. ...

With this letter, we notify you that in accordance with the ruling of the Synod of Bishops on May 16, 2011, you have six months starting from the receipt of this ukase to return to the body of the Russian Church Abroad and to your lawful hierarchy.  After six months, at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Synod of Bishops, the matter of your defrocking will be considered.

With love in the Lord and well wishes for your swift repentance and return,

+Hilarion
Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York
First Hierarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad

-------------------------

That ends the letter.

The following are some of Met. Agafangel's comments on the Forum:

1.  This is not his idea.  Due to the strength of his character (or weakness to be more exact), he is fulfilling the wishes of his master.  As usual.

2.  Unfortunately, our former brothers who joined the MP did not become examples there of loyalty to the Lord and Holy Tradition, but turned out to be lackeys who obey Moscow in every way.  It is peculiar to threaten a cleric with censure after the priest has not been in their jurisdiction for almost five years (actually 85 years, since 1927).  They are so filled with spite and powerlessness that soon they will the reach the stage of even threatening "censure" after they die.

3.  We will definitely discuss this matter at the next Synod.
