February 29 2008: ROCOR DR. E.L. MAGEROVSKY REPORTS: "ABP. HILARION REBUFFED BY OUR ROCOR-PSCA SOUTH AMERICAN PRIESTS!"

~ "In a two week trip to South America, Abp. Hilarion of the uncanonical Laurus group met with various clergy of our ROCOR-PSCA jurisdiction in Argentina & Chile who are under the omophorion of Bp. Agafangel.

~ "Abp. Hilarion tried to convince those present at a meeting held in a Buenos Aires hotel on February 13, 2008 to "correct the disorder created in the ROCOR South American churches."

~ "But Archpriests George Petrenko, Constantine Busygin, priest Vladimir Petrenko, and Deacon Eugeny Braga told Abp. Hilarion the same thing that Fr. Benjamin Wosniuk and Mother Juliana of Chile told him a few days before: "It is for (YOUR GRACE) to correct the 'disorder' by coming under the omophorion of Bishop Agafangel!"

~ "The priests then reprimanded Abp. Hilarion for ignoring the countless letters they sent to Met. Laurus prior to May 17, 2007 the date of the ROCOR-MP union. They said to Abp. Hilarion, "We have written to (Met.) Laurus & (Your Grace) countless letters not to join with the MP because this merger is uncanonical. But we received no replies! And now (Your Grace) comes to us!!!?"

~ "In other words, our ROCOR-PSCA clergy in South America have set an example for the rest of us not to cower before uncanonical bishops. -ELM

~ "And we all of the ROCOR-PSCA assert along with our South American clergy and parishioners, "We will be steadfast in our affirmation of where the true Church is and where it is not!"
