EDITOR’S NOTE: I was not able yet to find the full text of the Archbishop’s speech but the message is very clear and you can see it in our title… This is nothing new, the faithless GOARCH and the even more faithless Phanar, have been looking at the hundreds and thousands of faithful taking refuge in the monasteries and they are salivating. Their goal is not only financial but mostly spiritual. Given as they are to Ecumenism and Globalism they give themselves the task to extinguish the few fires of faith burning in the monasteries – and they are powerful!!
The monasteries were the “Noah’s Ark” of Orthodoxy through the centuries… Please don’t anybody tell me that “our parishes lose income with all the baptisms taking place there, etc etc…” This sub-standard logic will not fly anywhere. Do you want your parishes to attract people? Then hire the right priest who will care about ALL the parishioners and not only the most wealthy. And who will preach the word of Christ instead of repeating the faithless messages form 79th Street and the Phanar….
