Constantinople and Alexandria: Dollar-bearing Hierarchs and the Service of Mammon

The news that The Patriarch of Alexandria has commemorated Epiphany of Apostasy and the schismatic group in Ukraine brings great sadness.  Contrary to the stated intent, such an action will only further the flames of schism which the Ecumenical Patriarch is fanning throughout the Orthodox world.

Growing Cold in Lawlessness

With great sadness, I read that, in an Orwellian like manner, the Church in Greece has recommended to recognized as valid the schismatics in Ukraine.
