THE TIME FOR ORTHODOX UNITY IS NOW!

Browsing: Archbishop Demetrios

Source: Estiator Magazine By Peter Makrias An announcement issued by the Holy Synod affirms the fact that the time has come for our Church in America to separate itself from the Ecumenical Patriarchate and declare its autocephaly. Based on its references to the meetings of Novem­ber 27th and 28th, the Phanar considers us to be its subjects and takes us for little children. “During these meetings, all the issues on the daily agenda were re­viewed and appropriate decisions were taken on all items.” But what were the topics on the agenda? What happened with the “triprosopon” list of three candidates to fill the…

Source: The National Herald By Theodoros Kalmoukos BOSTON. The Ecumenical Patriarchate seems to be leaning to replace His Eminence Archbishop Geron Demetrios of America, after the seismic revelations made exclusively the last three months by The National Herald about the economic bankruptcy of the Archdiocese, including the St. Nicholas Church in N.Y., where construction has stopped due to lack of payments by the Archdiocese. There are some strong indications towards the workings of the Archbishop’s replacement: the cancelation of the Archbishop’s visit to the annual Epiphany celebration in Tarpons Springs, Florida, and the visit of the Deputy Foreign Minister of…

Source: The National Herald By Theodoros Kalmoukos BOSTON, MA – His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios Geron of America sent to the Ecumenical Patriarchate the List of Candidates for Election to the Episcopacy or to be eligible for election to the Metropolis of Chicago, exactly as Patriarch Bartholomew and the Synod had requested. The List is divided into four categories: the first consists of the archimandrites, the second of widower priests, the third of active metropolitans of the Archdiocese and the fourth of those who previously served the Archdiocese and now are metropolitans in Ecclesiastical Eparchies of the Ecumenical Patriarchate abroad, namely,…

Source: Ekathimerini The Greek-American community is faced with a deep crisis. It’s time the Phanar – the Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate – made some important decisions before it’s too late. If it fails to appoint a new archbishop soon to replace the outgoing Demetrios or if it does not make the right choice, it will lose America. And if it loses America, it will lose everything. It is from there that it draws a large part of its power and economic support. Who would want to see such a development? And who can disregard the profound implications that would result from the…

Source: The National Herald By Theodoros Kalmoukos NEW YORK – Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew issued an announcement about the decisions of the Holy Synod during their November 26-29 meetings, presided by him. He wrote among other things that “the members of the Holy Synod surround His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios Geron of America “with brotherly love and esteem.” The entire announcement is as follows: “The Holy and Sacred Synod convened for its regular meetings on November 26–29, 2017, presided by His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew. “During these meetings, all the issues on the daily agenda were reviewed and appropriate decisions were…

Source: Estiator by P.S. MAKRIAS The matter of replacing Archbishop Demetrios was discussed last month in Constantinople in conjunction with the crisis that broke out following the Patriarchate’s decision regarding the vacant see of the Metropolis of Chicago. The National Herald reported that it was proposed to Archbishop Demetrios that he resign. The Archdiocese denied this report, but the newspaper insists on the accuracy of its information. It’s much easier for us to believe the newspaper. However, regardless of who is telling the truth, we, too, believe that it’s time for Archbishop Demetrios to hand over his position to another prelate. The Archbishop…

Concurrently, Archbishop Demetrios recommended a new leadership team, which was elected by the full Archdiocesan Council. George Tsandikos, managing…

Source: The National Herald By Theodoros Kalmoukos CONSTANTINOPLE – The Holy Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, which was convened at the Phanar on October 4, presided by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, directed Archbishop Demetrios to submit explanations about the Archdiocese of America’s finances. The Synod also asked about the List of Candidates for the High Priesthood and specifically about the Metropolis of Chicago, which unless things proceed expeditiously, will not have a new metropolitan in place for Christmas. The Synod also discussed paideia, given the closings of many parish day schools. Metropolitan Savas of Pittsburgh, who is Demetrios’ spiritual offspring, attempted…

Source: The National Herald Theodoros Kalmoukos  The time of Archbishop Demetrios to the Archbishopric Throne of America seems limited as the Ecumenical Patriarchate wants him to resign voluntarily, exclusive information obtained by The National Herald has found. It was also reportedly proposed to the Archbishop he be elected Metropolitan Geron of Hrakleia which is considered a prominent Eparchy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate that was destroyed during the catastrophe of Asia Minor. The reasons for this decision to ask the Archbishop to “depart in peace” -expected by many who know the workings at the Archdiocese – are the general withering condition…
