    GOARCH elects letter-forging defrocked archimandrite to episcopate

    Simple solution. Dissolve the assembly and bring back SCOBA.

    Archbishop Elpidophoros officiates baptism of gay couple in Athens

    I agree that the children should be baptized but that sacred mystery should not be used to promote anything other the God and his saving love. This seems like it was a mere attempt to "seen". Which is why they keep referring to it as the first "openly gay baptism". The kids aren't gay? so how is...

    GOARCH elects letter-forging defrocked archimandrite to episcopate

    Sounds like GOARCH would have no problem with the other Jurisdictions creating Greek Vicariates.

    Finally made it to my first WR Liturgy

    And it was reverent and beautiful and more importantly Orthodox. I drove an hour to St Vincent of Lerins in Omaha, NE. It is part of the Antiochian Archdiocese. They use the corrected BCP from Lancelot Andrewes Press. https://andrewespress.com/product/the-book-of-common-prayer/ The priest, Fr...

    North Macedonian schismatics have just been recognised by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

    Constantinople needs to accept that it has canonical boundaries just like everyone else. If others don't belong in the diaspora then neither do they.

    North Macedonian schismatics have just been recognised by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

    I haven't seen anything from the SOC that would lead me to believe that they would ever consider granting autocephaly to MOC.

    North Macedonian schismatics have just been recognised by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

    I saw the service and it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. However, there are 3 articles on Romfea that seem to indicate that some people are playing games. So this union might be 1) short lived 2) the calm before the storm...

    North Macedonian schismatics have just been recognised by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

    Yes. Only the Serbian Church can receive them back. It seemed that they were having beneficial negotiations but this may have been the EP and its sponsors throwing a wrench in the works to punish Serbia.

    North Macedonian schismatics have just been recognised by the Ecumenical Patriarchate

    I didn't think he recognized them as autocephalous rather canonical. Point will be the same. If he interfered in the internal affairs the Serbian Church will need to respond.

    Video of Sarum Mass (2021)

    I have never been to a WR service. Watching the video I am 21 minutes in and I noticed 2 things. First the priest seems to be praying silently for the first 14 minutes and toward the 21 minute mark they tell the catechumens to depart but also specifically pagans and Jews as well. That seemed a...

    Video of Sarum Mass (2021)

    I don't see much from the Antiochian WRV. Maybe that is just my perception. What Liturgy do they use?

    What does this mean? "Greek language, the mother tongue of the spirit"

    Who is EO?

    I thought the break between the EP and MP would apply to all churches under the EP. Would a ROCOR parish commune you?
