SYOSSET, NY [OCA] On Sunday, March 13, the first Sunday of Great Lent, the Sunday of Orthodoxy, Archpriest Daniel Andrejuk, Dean of the Representation Church of Saint Catherine the Great Martyr in Moscow, was invited, as it is customary, to the concelebration at Christ the Savior Cathedral presided by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill.
His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon took the opportunity of this invitation to have Father Daniel personally deliver a letter to officials within the Moscow Patriarchate for His Holiness imploring him to do what he can to end the war in Ukraine and the suffering and death of countless victims. In his message, His Beatitude further conveyed to Patriarch Kirill that the Orthodox Church in America has prayed fervently for a cessation of the hostilities against Ukraine since their onset.
I would like to know what will be the discussion around Kirill’s involvement in pro-war propaganda in Putin’s war in Ukraine at the bishop’s conference in Baltimore, Maryland in July 2022. I wonder how the bishops could possibly meet without discussing moves toward Kirill’s excommunication and other definitive responses.
I believe saying nothing would be a travesty.
