Алипий Светличный: Сегодня, в день памяти славной кончины великого Апостола Андрея…
Сегодня, в день памяти славной кончины великого Апостола Андрея Первоззванного, после рассказа о его распятии на святом кресте, будет уместным прочитать и Слово, обращенное к некогда старцу св. Горы Ефрему от Высокопреосвященнейшего Луки, митрополита Запожского.
Христос посреди нас, дорогие мои читатели!
Частное мнение по поводу высказываний игумена Ефрема Ватопедского.
Какое печальное зрелище! С одной стороны захваченные храмы, избитые люди, выброшенные на улицу в грязь Престолы и Святые Дары, а с другой благообразные старцы, которые, мило улыбаясь, говорят о вселенской любви Бога, о необходимости единства и духовного мира. Что это? Лукавство или нежелание знать правду? Или же это…
Today, on the day of memory of the glorious demise of the great Apostle Andrei the Pervozvannogo, after the story of his crucifixion on the Holy Cross, it will be appropriate to read the Word addressed to once the elders of St. Mountains of Ephraim from Eminence Luke, Metropolitan of Zapozhsky.
Christ is in our midst, my dear readers!
Private opinion on the statements of the idumen Ephraim Vatopedsky.
What a sad sight! On the one hand captured temples, beaten people thrown into the dirt of Thrones and Holy Gifts, and on the other, blessed elders who, smilingly, speak of the universal love of God, the need for unity and spiritual peace. What is that? Lukashenka or unwillingness to know the truth? Or is it a betrayal that is occupied in the risks of obedience?
I remember praying for Ephraim when he was in prison and persecuted. Then we prayed for a confessor of faith and a bloodless martyr. And what do we see now? A man who was going to participate in the introspection of Epiphany (Sergei) Dumenko (Chokalyuk). Then he managed to get to the hospital and only on TV to watch Christ crucify in my homeland with the participation of his representative, which means his hands too. But after saying ′′ A «, he had to say ′′ B ′′ too, taking in his monastery and praying with them. Now the igumen Ephraim speaks high words about love, but at the same time supports those who throw explosions into the houses of our priests, who throw mothers with young children outside, who tear the Body of Christ — Church, apart.
Father Efrem says that we all have the same liturgy. This is true. But the renewed served the same liturgy as the Orthodox, a hundred years ago. And a thousand and a half years ago, Arian liturgy was also little different from Orthodox. Edible and poisonous mushrooms are also hardly different from each other, but the effect from their intake has the opposite consequences. Theatre artists can also perform the follow-up of Orthodox Liturgy; it will be no different from ours, except one — there will be no action of the Holy Spirit. If the igumen Efrem is ready to serve the liturgy with anyone, then let the mushrooms eat, without distinguishing their properties and qualities. This is less dangerous, because in this case he will risk only his body and health, unlike co-service with heretics when he risks dying his soul.
Ephraim’s idiotic conscience invokes that he is canonically subordinate to heretics in Istanbul — Bartholomew and is obliged to do whatever he orders. But in this obedience, he crossed the trait where his obedience to the Church ended. After all, the Church rules indicate that obedience to the sacred beginning ends where the canons of Orthodoxy are violated. Thus, in his obedience, Father Efrem supported both Papism and Ethnophiletism and other heresies promoted by his fanary chief today.
Igumen Efrem says that this is a conflict between the Synods of the Russian Orthodox Church and KP. And here’s the evil! Because it’s about breaking the canonical system of the entire Ecumenical Church, followed by the disruption of the unity of the entire Body of Christ on Earth! ′′ What can he do?» asks Father Efrem. We will answer what he could have done, but he didn’t. He could have become the new Maxim Confessor or Mark Ephesian, but he didn’t want to. Apparently, the softness of the Igumen chair and the gilding of the Igumen staff turned out to be more native for Father Ephraim than the Truth and love for Christ. It’s a pity, it’s a pity that the genes of sin won the respected igumen of a new man in Christ. But he had a chance to become a holy confessor of the faith of Christ, but obedience to the Istanbul bandit was closer to the body…
