18 February 2012. A Good Word from Vladyki Avgustin of Lvov


Let’s see what the Russian Wikipedia has to say about Vladyki Avgustin’s attitude to ecumenism:

Противник экуменизма, допускает сотрудничество Православной Церкви с другими конфессиями только в гуманитарной сфере.

An opponent of ecumenism, he only accepts cooperation (on the Church’s part) with other confessions in humanitarian matters.


This is in diametric opposition to the insidious and pernicious indifferentism shown by Paffhausen, John Behr, Vassa Larina, John Erickson, Andrei Psaryov, Lyonyo Kishkovsky, and John Jillions, amongst others. Those named (and those of like ilk) spit in Vladyki Avgustin’s face with their public and unashamed dalliances with Uniates. I’ll make no bones of it… to have ANY relations with Uniates beyond unavoidable and innocent ones found in normal public life are an unconscionable and blasphemous rejection of Christ’s Church; it’s a confession of the Branch Theory, a crackbrained Protestant heresy condemned by the Holy Church (His Holiness himself wrote the opinion on it whilst he was a Metropolitan). Indeed, it’s the “Invisible Church” in “seven league boots”.

NEVER hate Uniates. NEVER hurt them. NEVER disrupt their services or affairs. NEVER vandalise their parish property or homes. NEVER go out of your way to humiliate individual Uniates (in most cases, they’re just parroting what their pro-papist lickspittle clergy taught them). NEVER argue with them.  However, NEVER give in to their arguments “for the sake of peace”. NEVER allow their statements to “go unanswered” in the public square. NEVER be part of any dialogue that has a single Uniate in it.

On the one side, we see Vladyki Avgustin, along with Fr Mikhail Shuvar, Blessed Gavriil Kostelnik, St Aleksei Kabalyuk, St Maksim Sandovich, St Aleksei Toth, and Vladyki Laurus Škurla. On the other, we have all the people that I named above in the paragraph after the Vladyki Avgustin quote. You can stand with one group or with the other. I stand with Vladyki Avgustin… what about you? You can confess Christ or you can confess the Prince of this World… DO choose well.


Do have a care with a website called Byzantine Texas. It’s Uniate black propaganda of the worst possible sort. AVOID IT. It’s webmaster is one “Josephus Flavius”, so, if a person identifying themselves as such comments on your site… SPAM HIM WITHOUT MERCY. He’s one of the more fanatic and noxious papists out there… don’t give him a forum. Don’t mess with him, though. Simply, don’t give him a forum. The konvertsy are gaga over him… it speaks volumes on their ignorance and character, doesn’t it?
