20 March 2016. Cabinet Intel on Loopy Doings in the Wyoming Valley

00 burning russian church in novorossiya. 25.04.15

______________________________

I got this from a Cabinet source on Saturday:

Have you heard what’s been happening with the OCA cathedral in Wilkes-Barre PA? The convert priest uses questionable liturgical practises. The choir director protested these mistakes/blatant errors… he recorded them. Bishop Mark came in, fired the choir director, kicked him off the church council, with the comment, “This cathedral is gonna be closed soon anyway”. What a disgrace. It turned so many people off that many are boycotting the Sunday of Orthodoxy vespers there tomorrow. It’s disgraceful what Bishop Mark is doing, he can barely celebrate Hierarchical Divine Liturgy! No parishes except for one or two in the whole diocese can even do them anymore! Last year’s, the feastday at St Tikhon Monastery was ludicrous and a liturgical disgrace. Check the website of Holy Trinity Cathedral when you get a chance. Weird stuff is going on there. They have some “Ecumenical Service of Encouragement” every Saturday after Vespers. Their priest is still in various Pentecostal and evangelical Christian societies, as well as some ecumenism society… it’s all on the website.

I replied:

Maymon is a disobedient SOB picked up by Fatso. Saliba kicked out Maymon for refusing to go where he was sent! The konvertsy love Maymon… what does that tell you about a lot that’s always caterwauling about obedience?

Maymon is Moriak Lite… we have to treat him the same way that we treated Moriak. He deserves the boot… yesterday! Note well that these konvertsy are all disobedient loose cannons… it’s time to put a stop to that; I’m not alone in thinking that way!

10 July 2012. No News of JP “Resignation” on Patriarchia.ru or Interfax.ru Yet

______________________________

It’s interesting… there’s no mention of JP’s resignation on  either patriarchia.ru (the official MP website) or Interfax-religion.ru (it’s not on the English-language side either). This is unusual, as patriarchia.ru has carried news of the OCA before, usually very soon after the event (Interfax usually follows patriarchia.ru in posting). When one considers that Archbishop Yustinian Ovchinnikov was observed by onlookers berating Herman Swaiko very loudly on Sunday in Wilkes-Barre PA, the only conclusion that one can come to is that the Centre doesn’t believe the self-serving retarded treacle released by Kish & Co. That is, the Centre doesn’t believe that the “resignation” is a resignation. The Syosset gang had best step carefully… after all, the Centre CAN pull the Tomos. This is turning into a farcical replay of the August Events, isn’t it?

8 July 2012. Yustinian and Herman Have Private Confab in Wilkes-Barre

______________________________

I’ve received word that Herman and Yustinian, at this moment, are having a private confab. Herman didn’t serve at the liturgy this morning, but he was present in the church (my source wasn’t clear on whether or not he was in the altar). The pot’s simmering, kids…
