Following an enemy
Dear Editors,
Greetings! I noticed that this article states, "Saint Andrew of Constantinople is considered to be the first such saint, although Saint Basil of Moscow is also widely known." Actually, there were notable fools for Christ well before St. Andrew of Constantinople who lived in the 10th century. Perhaps you could include correct this by including something like the following text from the article "Foolishness for Christ" from Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foolishness_for_Christ :
"The Eastern Orthodox Church records Isidora Barankis of Egypt (d. 369) among the first Holy Fools. However, the term was not popularized until the coming of Symeon of Emesa, who is considered to be a patron saint of holy fools[1][5]. In Greek, the term for Holy Fool is salos."

Carl Jung has been called the greatest threat to the Church since Julian the Apostate, and I've met one former President of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich who has only loudest alarms to sound about him (see Jeffrey Burke Satinover, [https://amzn.to/2NlUppH The Empty Self: Gnostic and Jungian Foundations of Modern Identity]). One hears that at the beginning of many failed Protestant pastorates, the clergy began reading Jung.
 
Why are we seeking common ground with the likes of Arius and Nestorius? And, um, is the "Bishop" in charge of a "Traditionalist" center in communion with other bishops? I'm pretty much a traditionalist (for a slice of my writing, see [https://cjshayward.com/contraception/ Orthodoxy, Contraception, and Spin Doctoring: A Look at an Influential but Disturbing Article], or better [http://bestof.jonathanscorner.com my flagship collection ''The Best of Jonathan's Corner'']), but so far as I know I have never met an assembly that has "Traditionalist" in its name that is canonical. I've made several efforts, and completely failed to find the bishop in charge of the Traditionalist Orthodox Center on [http://assemblyofbishops.org assemblyofbishops.org].
