Synod of the Church of Greece: bishops who do not recognize the OCU undermine the unity of the Church
In addition to making judgments on vaccination issues, Greek bishops headed by Archbishop Jerome II of Athens and all Greece formulated claims against two hierarchs who refused to recognize the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.
Metropolitans Cosmas of Aetolia and Acarnania and Metropolitan Seraphim of Kitir were called upon to explain their position at the next meeting of the Holy Synod of the Greek Orthodox Church, which will be held in August 2021.
The Synodal Commission on doctrinal and canonical issues of the Orthodox Church of Greece, having studied the case of the Metropolitans, accused them that with their letters, public statements and sharply negative position on the OCU, these hierarchs "undermine the unity of the Church of Greece with the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Orthodox issues and call into question its canonical privileges."
As RISU has reported, the Primate of the Church of Cyprus promised to "put in their places" the hierarchs who do not agree with the recognition of the OCU.
