Metropolitan of Kythira calls on Abp. Ieronymos not to serve with Dumenko
Metropolitan Seraphim of Kythira finds it impossible to pray and concelebrate with the representatives of the OCU.
Metropolitan Seraphim of Kythira and Antikythera of the Greek Orthodox Church addressed His Beatitude Archbishop Ieronymos with a request not to concelebrate with the head of the OCU Epiphany Dumenko, the UOC DECR website reports with reference to the Greek source “Romfea”.
In particular, commenting on his position regarding the decisions that were adopted at the Bishops’ Council of the Greek Church, Metropolitan Seraphim said:
“I would just like to end with my heartfelt humble address to His Most Holy Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and His Beatitude Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece with a request not to anticipate and compress things in a present critical state of the Church and not to proceed to the joint bishops' services with the so-called “primate” of the new “Autocephaly” until a pan-Orthodox discussion of this complex and even explosive canonical and ecclesiological problem takes place. ”
