"We can no longer talk about church unity. A schism in world Orthodoxy has occurred. And this is already a fait accompli," Metropolitan Luka of Zaporizhia and Melitopol of the UOC - M.P. admitted in his address to Orthodox Christians published by the Office of the Zaporozhia Diocese of the Moscow Patriarchate.

This is reported by the portal "Credo.Press".

The hierarch declared a certain "world elite" to be the culprit of this split, hinting that he associated it with Freemasonry. The puppet of this elite, according to Luke, is Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, whom the Metropolitan called "a heretic and blasphemer", who brought "purity of faith and life per the canons of the Church" as a sacrifice of "his own well-being and comfort." The heresy of the Ecumenical Patriarchate and its accomplices, according to the bishop of the Moscow Patriarchate, "surpassed all previous heretical atrocities." That said, Luke does not provide any theological description of this heresy, so it is unclear whether we are talking about ecumenism, in which the Moscow Patriarchate itself is involved, or about some other heresy.

The Zaporozhia Metropolitan called for "putting the former patriarch of Constantinople and his henchmen in the list of persons who are anathematized during the Divine Service in the first week of Great Lent - in the rite of the Triumph of Orthodoxy."

Luka interprets the current coronavirus pandemic as the use of "Free Masons" "bacteriological weapons on such a scale that they have led ... to the death of innocent people. This is the first step in a carefully thought-out multi-way combination aimed at rebuilding the entire human civilization." In his appeal, he mentions only one name of the "bricklayer" - this is the famous financier and philanthropist George Soros.
