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

The parasynagogue fully proved its adoption of heresy, through its unanimous acceptance of the resolution entitled "Resolution No. 362 and Church community (district)" where they "confirm that in the Russian Church there is no Supreme ecclesiastical authority, and, in accordance with the well-known decree of Patriarch Tikhon and the Highest Church administration of the Russian Orthodox Church dated 7/20 November 1920, that it (the Russian Church) consists of Small Councils, or "fragments," or self-governing Church districts, called to be in Eucharistic communion with each other". "The concept that only one of the Synods (Councils) have the succession from the former Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia, and that the other "fragments" are essentially schismatic groups, is but groundless delusion."

Those who wrote this, indeed, are heretics who teach against the Unity of the Church, inexcusably referring to Patriarch Tikhon at that. The words of the Decree No. 362 directly convicts the parasynagogue: "9) In the case of extreme disorganization of ecclesiastical life, when certain individuals and parishes cease to recognize the authority of the diocesan Bishop, the latter - being in a position which is specified in clauses 2 and 6- must not resign from his hierarchical plenary authority, but must organize a deanery and diocese from the individuals in parishes and the parishes remaining faithful to him; and providing where needed, the performing of divine services be it even in private homes or other adaptable premises, breaking ecclesiastical communion with the disobedient".

Thus, following the spirit and the letter of Decree No. 362, we do not “remove our hierarchical plenary authority, but must organize a deanery and diocese from the individuals in parishes and from the parishes remaining faithful to him; and providing where needed, the performing of divine services be it even in private homes or other adaptable premises, breaking ecclesiastical communion with the disobedient". Therefore, we who fulfill Patriarch Tikhon’s Decree, are obligated to continue the work of salvation of those faithful to Christ and His Church without you heretics and schismatics, by "breaking ecclesiastical communion with the disobedient".

According to the Resolution of the Council of Bishops, all clergy who attended and took part in the meeting of the parasynagogue are prohibited from serving. From January 10 on, it is prohibited to have communion in prayer with any of them. It is prohibited to attend services executed by heretics and schismatics in the Holy Trinity Church in Astoria, the in Church of St. Sergius of Radonezh in the Tolstoy Farm, the Church of St. Xenia of Petersburg in Ottawa, the Resurrection parish in Toronto and the Vilensky Martyrs parish in Melbourne (Australia).

But even at this time those who did not participate in this gathering have the opportunity to escape the bans – by not signing the conclusive documents and by rejecting the heretical parasynagogue.

Jurisdictional Ecumenism is totally out of the closet!

No longer are the jurisdictional ecumenists simply saying that the fragments should be in communion with each other. Now they come out and assert that all of the fragments are equal parts of ROCOR, and that our ROCA is a delusion.

The basis of their idea is their abuse of Ukase #362, which abuse has become too familiar to us. Evil intended for ROCOR to die, so evil hates the ukase and will use it against us, twisting it, punishing us for ever having it in the first place, wanting us to regret having it.

Jurisdictional Ecumenism is being revealed as the MP's plan to destroy the part of the ROCOR that escaped the ROCOR-MP union of May 17, 2007.

Does it make sense to us now that Abp. Andronik rescinded his signature on the 16Aug2016 agreement with Vl. Agafangel just 10 days later? An agreement that was arbitrated by our Sister Church?

So where is this supposed to go now? What is evil's plan? I expect evil wants is for all the schisms of ROCOR to remain intact and all go into communion with each other forming one big "SCOBA" for the "right wing".

Will the ROCA disappear? Between the fragments and the GOC, we have lost most of our members. The GOC union was supposed to strengthen us, but instead it is swallowing up the members who want a bigger Ship.
