ASSEMBLY OF CANONICAL ORTHODOX BISHOPS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL AMERICA

From May 25-27, the second annual Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America gathered for its meeting at the Chicago O’Hare Hilton. There was a total of 45 bishops in attendance. In addition, nearly all of the members were present at the Assembly: the Ecumenical Patriarchate, including the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and the Albanian Orthodox Diocese; the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese; the Patriarchate of Moscow, including the Russian Orthodox Church in the USA and the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia; the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of the Americas; the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Church; and the Orthodox Church in America. Not represented were the American Carpatho-Russian Diocese, as they currently have no bishop, owing to the recent repose of Metropolitan Nicholas; the Georgian Orthodox Church, whose bishop resides in Georgia; most of the bishops of Canada and Mexico, as the Canadian bishops anticipate their own assembly, as do those of Mexico and Central America who have requested to join the Assembly of South America. The Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church were detained by the business of their Synod in Belgrade, which was in session at the same time, and by delays in travel caused by the volcanic ash over Europe, and so were not able to attend.

THE JERUSALEM PATRIARCHATE CLARIFIES ITS POSITION VS. THE ROMANIAN PATRIARCHATE

On May 20, 2011 the Jerusalem Patriarchate clarified its decision to break off communion with the Romanian Patriarchate by severing the commemoration of His Beatitude Patriarch of Romania, Daniel and defrocking the representative of the Romanian Orthodox Church in Jerusalem.

The following is, in most part, a reply to affirmations made by Bishop Ciprian Campineanul following his April 2011 visit to the Jerusalem Patriarchate, and after that Patriarchate broke off communion with the Romanian Patriarchate in May 2011.  This response did not await the decision of the Romanian Patriarchate regarding the problem which was discussed the very same day in the Holy Synod, underlining the firm resolve of the Jerusalem Patriarchate in this regard.

MY WAY, OR THE HIGHWAY

In April 2011 an open conflict erupted between the Romanian Orthodox Patriarchate and the Patriarchate of Jerusalem. The cause of the conflict was the building of a Romanian church by the Romanian Patriarchate in the Holy Land, at Jericho.

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.
