The Primate tells when communion between Phanar and ROC can be restored
His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry answered the question whether it is possible to restore the former unity between the Orthodox.
His Beatitude Metropolitan Onuphry of Kyiv and All Ukraine spoke about the conditions for the restoration of Eucharistic communion between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Patriarchate of Constantinople in an interview with the Pastor and Flock magazine.
“Theoretically, the break in Eucharistic communion that occurred in 2019 can be healed,” the Primate said, “but for this to happen, the esteemed Patriarch of Constantinople must treat everyone as the first in honor and equal in authority.”
His Beatitude Vladyka expressed regret that the head of Phanar "acts like the first both in honor and in power, this being alien to the Orthodox spirit of conciliarism, by which the Orthodox Church lived and lives."
“And what is even more disappointing – there are no prerequisites for an Orthodox shift in this vicious tendency of establishing ‘Orthodox ”papism’,” the Primate concluded.
As the UOJ reported, Metropolitan Luke of Zaporizhia and Melitopol spoke about 4 signs of papism in the text of the Tomos.
