Polish Orthodox Church Rejects Autocephaly Granted By Constantinople To Non-Canonical Orthodox Church Of Ukraine

On October 30, the Polish Orthodox Church’s Holy Synod announced that the Polish Church will not recognize the Tomos of Autocephaly granted by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Cosntantinople to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (non-canonical entity created from local schismatic organizations).

“The Polish Autocephalous Orthodox Church is not opposed to the offer of autocephaly for the Church of Ukraine, as based on dogmatic and canonical rules (in effect) for the entire (Orthodox) Church. This cannot occur, however, for a group of raskolniks (using a local term for schismatics)”, reads the statement released by the Holy Synod convened under the chairmanship of the Archbishop of Warsaw and Metropolitan of All Poland, His Beatitude Savva.

Schismatics cannot represent a healthy ecclesiastical organization; they violate the Eucharistic unity of all Orthodoxy.

Meanwhile, Russian Orthodox archpriest Nikolai Balasov warned that the Church will respond with “canonical repercussions” if reports that the Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Greece is recognizing the autocephaly of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine are true.

Earlier, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew publicly admitted that the so-called ‘independent’ Orthodox Church of Ukraine had been created as a tool of the geopolitical standoff in eastern Europe. One of its main goals is to combat the canonic Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate).

God bless the Poles. The Ukrainian apostates should be isolated.

Poland is one of the first countries that was invaded and split between Russians and Germans, so you wonder why they don’t want Russians to defend them? :D

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

yea you are right, they should continue hanging onto the past like the idiots they are

Poland is also the sole country that invaded both Germans and Russians. Oh weyy, they are its neighbours !!! Try to rethink history.
