Here’s some more Cabinet input in re the Mollard/Jillions junket to Rome:
I’m not defending the OCA establishment, but the Vatican does indeed know who they are, and they’ve invited them as such. In the Vatican, unlike in a legitimate Orthodox setting, they don’t need to hide under Alfeyev‘s skirt. For instance, the Uniate seminary in Pittsburgh incorporates “The History of the OCA” in the syllabus of one its core courses. I may be wrong, but Feodosy Lazor and Lyonyo may have attended John Paul I‘s enthronement in 1978. You’ll have to check that out.
What need I add to the above… the person involved KNOWS what they’re talkin’ about… just sayin’…
I got this from one of the Inner Cabinet:
Mollard and Jillions will be travelling to Rome represent the OCA at Pope Francisco’s enthronement. It’s true that a bishop and at least one priest have attended previous papal enthronements on behalf of the OCA since 1970, but this is the first time the bishop has been the First Hierarch of the Church. This can only mean that Mollard and Jillions are seeking a neutral venue outside the Orthosphere for “unofficial” talks with Centre and/or Phanar officials who’d also be in Rome representing their respective Churches, as all the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox are usually seated together. In Metropolia days, they used WCC meetings for the same purpose. That was true even later… Pierre l’Huillier, for example, really went to the WCC Assembly held in Canberra in the early 1990s to “run into” certain other Orthodox hierarchs in attendance.
This needs no commentary from me. Read n’ heed…
There’s more to babas than just hugs and home-made pierogies… bad guys, watch out!
One of the grapevine sent this on:
A man tried to nick a baba’s purse at Ambridge‘s Holy Ghost Russian church… and she beat the hell of the crook with it!
There must be something in the water in Ambridge (which is near Pittsburgh PA)… don’t be messing with the babas there… you’ll just open up a can of whup-ass on yourself and you’ll be SORRY.
