Subject: Honoring the Oecumenical Patriarch

If participating in a reception for Orthodoxy's most prominent ecumenist (who denies that we, for example, are even part of the Church, yet considers Roman Catholics one lung of the single body of the Church) is a sign of opposition to ecumenism, we can only hope that something will be said about the irresponsibility of the Phanar (as well as the Moscow Patriarchate) in this sense.

Who would have imagined such a thing as the First Hierarch of ROCA, honoring a visiting ecumenist in such a way even five years ago? Cordial and civilized contacts are one thing. Honoring such obviously errant Church leaders is quite another. Compromise builds on compromise.

two things:

1. It is about time to take a look at just WH0 it is steering the MP-R0C0R ship.

2. I did not activate the link. That was on purpose. I apologize for the inconvenience.
