WIKILEAKS REVEALS RUSSIAN CHURCH LEADER’S CONVERSATION WITH U.S. AMBASSADOR

• +Hilarion explain’s Church’s desire “to promote current Government of Russia policies”
• Defends Church’s lack of tolerance against “non-traditional religions”
• Laments that while “….70-80 percent of Russians call themselves Orthodox”, very few, (5%) attend church regularly and even fewer ‘have their life influenced by the Orthodox faith’
• Accountability “theoretically possible” but “does not always work in practice”

A PASTORAL LETTER TO THE CLERGY, MONASTICS AND FAITHFUL OF THE ORTHODOX CHURCH IN AMERICA ON AUTOCEPHALY

Source: www.oca.org

“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
Ephesians 2:19-22

“The Orthodox Church in America is autocephalous not in order to be self-sufficient and isolated, but in order to be in living communion and close contact with all Orthodox Churches… The Orthodox Church in America received autocephaly not in order to be master of Orthodox unity in America but in order to be a servant of this unity.”
Bishop DMITRI, Bishop of Dallas and the South
Address to Patriarch Pimen on the Occasion of the 60th Anniversary of the Restoration of the Patriarchate
Holy Trinity- St. Sergius Monastery, 1978

PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM

O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.

Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.

Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;

for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.



OUR FATHER

Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
