Greek Hierarchs Initiate Pan-Orthodox Council To Resist Recognition Of 'Independent' Ukrainian Orthodox Church

Seraphim (Mentzelopoulos) of Piraeus

Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus and Metropolitan Seraphim of Kythira and Antikythera have sent a joint letter-appeal to all local Orthodox churches calling on them to hold the Pan-Orthodox Council on the Ukraine question, Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus told vimaorthodoxias.gr.

He noted that the recognition of the Orthodox Chruch of Ukraine (‘independent’) by the Greek Orthodox Church may lead to tragic consequences. According to him, the flock is extremely divided and is watching the developments with anxiety as the new Schism is a fact.

Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus emphasized that no local Orthodox church has recognized the recently created Orthodox Church of Ukraine and that the Greek Orthodox Church made a historical mistake, when it decided that the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople had a right to support the Ukrainian schism.

The actions of the top Greek metropolitans regarding the Ukraine question demonstrates that despite the tactical administrative success of Constantinople in Greece, it remains in a very complicated situation because of its actions in Ukraine. In this situation, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople is in fact fueling a conflict within the Orthodox World to pursue own political goals.

The OVERWHELMING majority of the Greeks that I talk to are NOT supporting The Patriarch of Constantinople for most things , let alone for the undermining of the Russian Church.

Also they are against the Western Intervention of our Church’s affairs.
The CIA are cooking these schisms with Western backing.
We are still at odds with the VATICAN as they are the ones to undermine the Christians of the EAST, see the Syrian Christians and what did they DO??? ……………NOTHING
