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

Remembering good bishops


"If we have a good priest (or bishop), we give thanks to God.  If a bad one, we endure him."

Etna has come up with its own guidelines for its new diocese:
http://www.dep.church/guidelines.html
"...The spi­rit of keep­ing the Bi­shop dis­tant, or of the Bi­shop
re­mai­ning dis­tant from his flock, is a spi­rit un­known to
Or­tho­do­xy...."


I take exception to that. Ideally the spirit is unknown. But we don't always have the ideal. Sometimes we have bishops who don't even follow their own guidelines. KGB agents are not the only kind of bad bishops. There are other kinds of bad bishops. I am reminded that we should just be grateful if they are not heretics or sex perverts.
