The Clergy of Greece and Cyprus Publish a Petition Against Patriarch Bartholomew’s Views

Athens. The petition was published in Greece, which strongly criticizes recent statements of Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, preceding a meeting between Pope Francis of Rome and the Primate of the Orthodox Church of Constantinople during Pope Francis’ visit to Turkey on November 28-30, 2014. In particular, the criticism focuses on the nature of the Orthodox Church and its relations with other Christian denominations and other religions.

The petition is entitled “The New Ecclesiology of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.” It was written by several archimandrites and archpriests of the Greek Orthodox Church. At the present time the petition has been signed by over 2,000 people, including six bishops, priests, monks of the Orthodox Churches of Greece and Cyprus, and monks of Mount Athos.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.

Dear Friends,

Our website exists owing to your generous assistance, thanks to the funds donated by our beloved readers.
