俄羅斯神聖主教議會在一九四五年十二月二十七日的第三十一號決議中聲明:自一九四五年十月二十六日起,哈爾濱教區的教會聖統——包括總主教,主教,修士大司祭,朝鮮傳教團的首腦,各級神職人員以及平信徒——應當歸屬俄羅斯正教會。中國和朝鮮被組建為一個完整的跨國都主教轄區,命名為“哈爾濱及東亞都主教區”。奈斯多爾總主教被任命為這個都主教區的臨時監管。在一九四六年六月十一日的第六百六十四號牧首​​敕令中,這個都主教區被東亞督主教區(這是一個聯合了數個教區,並享有某些特定的自治權的轄區)所取代。奈斯多爾總主教被指派為牧首的特派督察(督主教),並被提升為哈爾濱及全滿洲都主教。俄羅斯傳教團則直屬於莫斯科牧首區聖統管轄。

一九四六年十月二十二日,神聖主教議會決定任命北京總主教維克多·斯維亞金為俄羅斯中國傳道團的首腦,並飭令在教區事務上,他應當歸屬於督主教區聖統管轄,在傳教事務上則應服從督主 Continue reading “中華基督正教會在大陸走向自治 – The Eastern Orthodox Church of China is moving towards autonomy on the mainland ╰⊰¸¸.•¨* Chinese”

HAVE FAITH – ORTHODOXY

A very high-ranking European man

about Protestantism, Roman-Catholicism & Orthodoxy

Fr. Athanasios Simonopetritis (from the Monastery of Simonos Petra Monastery, Holy Mount Athos, Greece) says:

Last year came to our monastery a very high-ranking European man. We chatted with cordiality. Eventually, I asked him: “Welcome! Why did you come to us, ordinary monks, you, a famous man, at moment we are not anything great…”.

He replied disarmingly: “Father, you may not be something great, as you say. However, you live in a great space and you have a great treasure, Orthodoxy!”.

I deliberately insisted on the same pace, saying: “What can a so prominent man wait by Orthodoxy?”

In the debate were four or five fathers. He looked into our eyes one by one and said: “Listen Fathers, I will confess you something: Today both ways of expression of Christianity are in intractable, we have been tired with them. Both Roman-Catholicism with legalistic spirit and Protestantism with the hard logic crushed us. We want heart and freedom! These elements are in Orthodoxy. Perhaps you don’t understand. However, we understand very well”
