After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY


ROCOR-MP Joins Ecumenist Assembly

Episcopal Assembly May 2010 New York
ROCOR-MP has joined the EACOHNCA [Episcopal Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Hierarchs in North and Central America] which replaces SCOBA.

At the first Episcopal Assembly, 57 of the 65 "canonical" hierarchs in North America were present.  Who was not there?  Possibly among those missing were Abp. Kyrill of SF, Bp. Benjamin of SF, and Abp. Alypy.  These we know were there:

Metropolitan Hilarion [ROCOR-MP]
Bishop Iov [MP]
Bishop Gabriel [ROCOR-MP]
Bishop Peter [ROCOR-MP]
Bishop Theodosius [ROCOR-MP]
Bishop George [ROCOR-MP]
Bishop Ieronim [ROCOR-MP]

The meeting concluded with an ecumenical concelebration of the liturgy, so ROCOR-MP is now officially in communion with all these world Orthodox jurisdictions.

This assembly is a major step towards the future 8th Ecumenical Council in preparation for the Antichrist.  Regarding the true essence of such a Council, here is what Fr. Seraphim Rose wrote in his essay, The Royal Path:

“Probably, indeed, it is already too late to prevent the renovationist "Eighth Ecumenical Council" and the "ecumenical" Union which lies beyond it; but perhaps one or more of the Local Churches may yet be persuaded to step back from this ruinous path which will lead to the final liquidation (as Orthodox) of those jurisdictions that follow it to the end; and in any case, individuals and whole communities can certainly be saved from this path, not to mention those of the heterodox who may still find their way into the saving enclosure of the true Church of Christ.”
