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


Blackmail Mission

Join the MP or else!

From Metropolitan Agafangel's website:-
09/08/11, at 9:00 am, a group of people consisting of representatives of local authorities and about 12 priests of the Moscow Patriarchia have penetrated into the territory of the Resurrection monastic community in the village of New Sagaydak, Moldova. Officials declared that there are certain problems with the property (privately owned), and representatives of the MP had threatened monks with physical violence and said that if the Abbot joined the Moscow Patriarchia, there would be no problems. This blackmail on the part of civil authorities was attended by (participated with) the mayor, a construction inspector and the a police inspector. 
Pictures of the community's life can be found at:
