Alea iacta est… Ἀνερρίφθω κύβος… The REAL Play is About to Begin

Ἀνερρίφθω κύβος… ἐν τούτῳ νίκα!

Read this first. I’m not going to waste many words on this one. NO ROCOR bishops or clergy were listed amongst the celebrants. One would have expected George Schaeffer at least… or Fr John Sorochka from Mayfield. In addition, no EP, SPC, or Romanian bishops or clergy were mentioned. Ah, yes… Nathaniel Popp (the head of the Romanian Archdiocese of the OCA) was amongst the missing as well. I fear that JP outsmarted Yustinian Ovchinnikov… obviously, he did not tell him that Feodosy and Herman were to be present. No doubt, that was “payback” for the “Episcopal Assembly” treating JP as a simple bishop and an equal to Hilarion Kapral. Note well that JP expressly invited Feodosy and Herman according to the post… watch for immature ungrounded konvertsy like “John” at Ad Oriente and jumped-up former Episkies like Reardon to slobber all over this and crow that JP is showing “forgiveness”… that is why one can see that such sorts were never one with us.

One wonders what the actual turnout was… JP claimed 200 attendees at a recent conference when the photo of the participants showed only 60, and the building had a capacity of less than 100. After all, there’s one million people in the OCA according to JP… it’s what he said in an interview in Pravoslavie.ru. Caveat lector… The post claims that this was “a historic celebration of the liturgy”. Indeed, it was… but not in the sense that the oca.org propagandists mean. All the noise about disciplining Herman was mere wind… a smokescreen… a canard of the grossest variety. JP and the cabal spat on you and laughed… I believe that many people are still stunned by it all and are still digesting this information. I certainly am… but it’s no surprise, is it? It’s too soon for a detailed discussion. However, one CAN say that JP has definitively driven over the cliff… the only question is… shall you stay in the vehicle?

The Rubicon was crossed on Memorial Day… We must stop JP at the Milvian Bridge… we can do it.

In hoc signo vinces… ἐν τούτῳ νίκα!
