Patriarch Theodore, who recognized the OCU, remembers "30 pieces of silver"
The Primate of the Church of Alexandria said that Africa does not need "self-proclaimed" patrons and saviors.
On February 13, on the occasion of the consecration of Archimandrite Nektarios as Bishop of Gulu and North Uganda, Patriarch Theodore addressed him with a word in which he spoke unflatteringly about the clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church, orthodoxianewsagency reports.
He also stated that the newly ordained bishop would have to face a lot of difficulties and temptations coming from the "false brothers". Obviously, Theodore had in mind the clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church. He also stressed that the "false brothers" for "30 pieces of silver" will try to distract the bishop from the Mother Church, which is the Patriarchate of Alexandria for the entire African continent.
In 2019, after visiting Ukraine and expressing support for the canonical UOC and its Primate Metropolitan Onuphry, Patriarch Theodore recognized the schismatic OCU by a sole decision.
As the UOJ wrote earlier, Patriarch Theodore was handed over a letter where he was called Judas.
