    Bishop Kyrillos of Erythres is the new Abbot of Halki
    by NewsRoom
    May 19, 2019 | 16:20

    Bishop Kyrillos of Erythres is the new Abbot of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) Monastery of Halki of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

    https://www.romfea.news/bishop-kyrillos-of-erythres-is-the-new-abbot-of-halki/

    • So a non-existent monastery gets a new Abbot? This is considered news?

      The Patr of Istanbul and his clique are almost as good at playing pretend as my little children.

      Trouble is, it’s very cute when my children ask me to be the “bad guys” when we play Legos around the living room, or when they ask me to be Darth Vader when we pretend-fight with light sabers.

      It’s not at all cute when the Patr of Istanbul and his clique play “pretend” church and monastery with a flock and monastic brotherhood/monastery that don’t exist. I believe the appropriate word for this pathology in grown-ups is “delusional.”

      • Greatly Saddened says

        I don’t mean to be disrespectful in any way.
        But, since they basically have very few, if any faithful, they need to find something to occupy themselves with.

        I have a thought. Perhaps they can take on some Christian philanthropic endeavors. Such as feeding the poor, the homeless and the destitute. That would certainly be a great start.

        • Good God man they have conferences to attend and theology speak to drown us in crap, too busy to waste time doing that. However they will make a nice speech about it. Words are cheap are they not?

        • But, but, but . . . if they do that they may get their manicured nails or French cuffed shirts dirty. This effeminate lazy pampered bunch can’t be bother to tend to the poor, sick or dying unless they are “in the will” of a wealthy donor. Anaxios to the whole lazy bunch of them.

      • Exactly. They nor playing when comes to money though.
        You see for many yrs after Asia Minor disaster inspite of metaxakis etc we had sympathy for the situation of the Patrarchate and rhe Greeks of Constantinople re Turkish attitude and rest. I would say that inspite of Athenagoras actions at times this sympathy attitude held through to 199I death of Dmitri, who was a humble good man.
        Then in the wings appeared Bartholomaios.
        And unnoticed by us because of the deferance we give them., they became corrupt bastards and sad play actors at best.
        Friend at least the play with yr children is productive.
        How I love their feast encyclicals, made on cool.aid and produced in la.la land followed by a collection.

      Perhaps from their most generous hearts and so called Christian valiues. The Ecumenical Patriarchate would be willing to forego some of the one million or so dollars being sent annually to Istanbul from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. So as to help those who are “truly in dire need!”

    Greek-American Family Meets Archbishop Elpidophoros

      Greek-American Family Meets Archbishop Elpidophoros
      By Theodore Kalmoukos 
      May 30, 2019

      https://www.thenationalherald.com/246398/greek-american-family-meets-archbishop-elpidophoros/

      • George Michalopulos says

        Kalmoukos has done some heavy lifting over the years –I’ll give him that. He’s exposed more than his fair share of corruption in the GOA.

        But when he’s wrong, he’s spectacularly wrong. I’m sorry to say but his narrative as far as Orthodoxy is concerned is a vaguely spiritualized My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

        • At best. Kalmoukos is a Greek who hates America.

          • George Michalopulos says

            That’s kinda harsh, JK but I see where you’re coming from.

            In my own experience with Greek-Americans from the East Coast, I sense more of a profound ignorance of those of us from Flyover Country. Perhaps a little contempt. Seriously, in my travels to Greece or to the East Coast (when I was younger) if I said I was from Oklahoma they’d ask me questions like if lived in a teepee. Seriously. To be fair, I’d say that a whole lot of other non-Greeks on the East Coast more or less believe the same thing.

            Regardless, what I get out of Kalmoukos’s writings is an ethos in which the average Greek-American s merely a Greek expat trying to get enough money to retire in comfort in Greece. In the meantime, send more money back to the kinfolk so they can live the life of Riley while the rest of us duke it out here in Barbarianlandia. To ensure this happens, Greek Orthodoxy has to appeal to the lowest common denominator of xenophobia.

            It’s sad, but I don’t see what’s different about the new archbishop. He seems ebullient enough and he has a starry-eyed view of America from his teenage years and that’s all well and good I suppose. But then, when I was an adolescent, I had a starry-eyed view of California which unfortunately no longer exists. Then, California meant the Beach Boys, beautiful girls, Hollywood, surfing, etc. Now it’s dodging feces and needles while navigating the sidewalks of Los Angeles and San Francisco. And trying to not step on homeless people who are sleeping. I understand that typhus and TB are making comebacks in those cities.

            I digress. My point? Ebullience and giddiness are not enough. They won’t get you through because they’re not based on reality. And worse, if you’re already on board with the rest of the debased American agenda (“tolerance and diversity”) then people will continue to flee the GOA. It happened to the Piscies and the Presbys and now it’s seeping into the Baptists. Don’t think that the Greeks aren’t immune. Indeed, that ship has already sailed in the Chicago diocese thanks to the previous hierarchy there.

            Now don’t get me wrong. If all LP is supposed to do is tamp things down, try not make waves, wait it out for a year or two so that when it comes time to “elect” a new Eastern Pope, then it’s not a bad gig. And it’ll more or less work. The heavy lifting will then be left to the next GOA primate. Regardless, it’s hard to see how things turn around in either scenario.

            • Γιώργο υπάρχουν πράγματα τα οποία δεν είναι είδη σπασμένα τώρα;

        • When in early yrs of last century, Saint Martyr archbishop Tikhon of America was asked whom the russians should pray for, Tsar or President ; he answers that they were in USA now and american citizens so should pray for the president.

    You need to learn how the gnisiacs found their purity. Their founder discovered on arrival that his ordination was flawed and built a flock by baptizing pregnant Irish girls to appease relatives back in Grecledom. Most Greeks made a fuss about language because Metaxas persecuted them if they didn’t speak their very limited Greek, like Kalmouko’s Nashua Albanians, so they were clueless she was xenoi. The gnisiac nephew was ready to join GOA when Karlutsos crawled into Lulurgas instead. Karlutsos now loves putting Lulurgas buttboys on parish councils because he can blackmail them out of their livelihood by showing them impeachable witnesses.

In this rather compact interview there is so much untruth that it is time to ask a question: why should His All-Holiness so overtly expose himself as lying through his teeth, if to speak franky?

    An average Westerner may well have overlooked the potentially seismic geopolitical event of 6 January 2019. On that snowy Sunday – Epiphany in western Christianity; Christmas Eve in Ukraine – the 39-year-old Metropolitan of Kiev, Epiphanius, received tomos from the Constantinople Patriarchate. This document bestowed autocephalous (self-governing) status on what was now the newly formed Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

    Tension Rising Among American Orthodox Bishops
     
    http://protectingorthodoxchurch.blogspot.com/2019/06/tensions-rising-with-american-orthodox.html?m=1

    • Gail Sheppard says

      As an aside, I’m not sure it’s possible for only two Antiochian bishops to express their discomfort; however, if Metropolitan Joseph is one of the two, then ALL of the Antiochian bishops would have a problem with it.  

      Let’s face it,  This is what we’ve feared for years.  For me, it dates back to Chambesy 2009 when I first heard the term diaspora.  They should never have formed the Assembly of Canonical Bishops under this arrangement.  If it weren’t for Archbishop Demetrios, the OCA wouldn’t have even been invited and as it was, their bishops had to sit in the back.

      Now Archbishop Demetrios is gone and there is no one standing between us and Constantinople.   Doesn’t matter that the diaspora doesn’t really exist.  It didn’t exist in 2009, but that didn’t stop Bartholomew from forming an Assembly over it.  He claims dominion over all sorts of things that don’t exist.  He has his very own Game of Thrones.

      This is the problem with the Church ignoring the EP all these years.  He puts these things together and if you don’t stop him at the gate, it will bite you later.  Well, now is later and they’re going to have to do something drastic to stop him.    

      * * *
      The Conference expressed the common desire of all Orthodox Churches for a solution to the problem of the canonical organization of the Orthodox Diaspora, in accordance with the ecclesiology, canonical tradition and practice of the Orthodox Church. The Conference decided to establish new Bishops Assemblies in certain regions throughout the world in order to resolve the problem of the Diaspora, namely for the Orthodox faithful that have settled outside the traditional boundaries of the local Orthodox Churches. The Presidents of these Assemblies are the primate hierarchs of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in that region or, in their absence, the next in order of the Church Diptychs.

    Into Ukraine: Dilemmas for the Russian Orthodox Church
    by NewsRoom
    Jun 07, 2019 | 20:16
    By Kadri Liik, Momchil Metodiev, Nicu Popescu*
    *Τhis article is part of a research for ECFR. Romfea.news will republish extracts from the paper in the following days
     
    The Kremlin’s relationship with the church is not as direct as that with, for example, a government ministry. Although it operates on a largely cooperative basis, the church is not a mere tool of state policy. Like all institutions, the church also has its own interests, agenda, traditions, and sensitivities that it wants to protect. These do not always coincide with those of the state. 
    “While everyone outside thinks that the church just serves the state, the church itself sees exactly the opposite: the state puts pressure on them, but they push back”, says one church insider in Moscow.8 Illustrative of this is the church’s position on Abkhazia and South Ossetia: while Russia recognised these as independent states in 2008, the church has – allegedly in defiance of the Kremlin, insiders maintain – stuck to its old position that holds both to be the canonical territory of the Georgian patriarch.
