Welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Hello, Colin, and welcome to OrthodoxWiki!

Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. Please note that OrthodoxWiki is always in development, so not everything works quite right yet. You can help, though!

OrthodoxWiki is a community-edited encyclopedia of Orthodox Christianity. Articles are created and edited by our members, and so everything that we do here is subject to review and revision. The result is a true consensus product, with every interested editor contributing his own knowledge and writing skills. As such, when you feel that criticism of an article is warranted, we encourage you to join in and fix it! Don't worry about breaking anything or doing something wrong—the other editors here are happy to jump in and help you learn.

Colin, I think your reference to the antiochian connection is incorrect

herewith an email from Fr Michael saying it didn't happen:


From: "ST. PETROC MONASTERY" <stpetrocabbey@...> Date: Mon Jun 28, 1999 1:42 pm Subject: [westernorthodox] Re: INTRODUCTION stpetrocabbey@... Send Email Send Email Dear Patrick,

Speaking as one of "these people", we came into ROCOR because the local Antiochian Orthodox Bishop would not countenance Western Rite and we spent two fruitless years trying to get the Patriarchate in Damascus to have the basic courtesy to answer the letters that one of their Archpriests instructed us to write to them. Then the Monastery was visited by the ROCOR Archbishop along with an Archpriest and a Priest. The Archbishop treated us with the utmost kindness and courtesy and after investigating us at great length and continuing discussions, we were welcomed into ROCOR. We have a great loyalty to our Archbishop, who has proved to be an exceptional father to us. That is why we stay. We are free to act throughout the diocese. Others, in other dioceses are not so fortunate and we all try to keep a relatively low profile because we do not wish to attract further attacks against our Archbishop by those who abhor the thought of WRITE. contamination. Fr. Michael.


Colin's information is correct. - Aristibule

Is there any evidence to support this statement? Fr. Michaels statement about this as expressed, documented, and linked to source above is clear. In essence it says that he tried, but it didn't happen.
