16 May 2012. Konvertsy Faction Raising Unauthorised Cultus Around the Person of the Late Archbishop Dmitri

No, Dmitri was NOT a saint… and all the caterwauling by all the konvertsy can’t make it so…


Got this from another Kitchen Cabinet member:

Ground was broken at St Seraphim Cathedral in Dallas TX to build the mausoleum to be the final resting place for the corpus {“corpus” was in the original, I’d NEVER be that vacuous and fatuous: editor} of Archbishop Dmitri. Metropolitan Jonah, Subdeacon Jeff Wynn, Milos Konjevich, diocesan treasurer, and Subdeacon Vladimir Gregorenko have met with the architect Nick Unich and his associate to design the new chapel. According to Michael Smith, task force member and parish council member, “We couldn’t be more excited. This is a positive uplifting experience for the entire Diocese of the South to have Vladyka back with us”.

With the pouring of the foundation scheduled for week of 14 May, Archbishop Dmitri could arrive back at the cathedral as early as 1 July. The chapel construction should start shortly thereafter and take nine to 12 months. Approximately 40 percent of the funds needed to complete construction of the chapel are now available. A new website at AbpDmitri.org (under construction) will follow the progress of construction.


The OCA’s out of bloody gelt (so much so that JP’s reaching into local DC funds to pay his rent), yet, there’s money being spent on this. It does make one wonder if Dickie Wood got the drop because his crook starosta was skimming funds for JP… it’s not inconceivable, given the murky history of Bobby with the Moscow OCA representation (and JP’s Bobby’s Boy… make no mistake on it). Furthermore, sources tell me that konvertsy nutters are painting Royster’s icon… just as some SVS oddbods have painted Schmemann’s icon (like the crew at New Skete… AARGH). All in all, Dmitri was a equivocal figure at best… but it does give one a handle on the mentality of the konvertsy… scary, ain’t it? Well, there’ll probably be another tempest in a teacup amongst the unrepresentative nutjob lot at Monomakhos… remember this… anyone who posts under a “username” AUTOMATICALLY forfeits credibility… ponder that. You wonder what they’re scared of…

This Just In Department:

Apparently, Gregory Burke and a fellow named Gantt are listed as clergy on the OCA Diocese of the South website, but not on the main OCA website. A Kitchen Cabinet member opined:

What’s going on? Is Burke a cleric in good standing or not? Is Gantt an OCA cleric or not? As you say, Fathausen’s more secretive (actually downright sneakier!) than Herman ever was…

Quite. That’s why rumour walks abroad… if the Metropolitan and his claque are secretive, what does that do? Would Metropolitan Leonty Turkevich have acted in such a way? Answer me that one…
