|The Romanian Orthodox Church promotes Romanianism and not Orthodoxy in her “Diaspora”.
In the Nov. 23 2011 edition of the Ziarul Lumina newspaper, an article appeared (please see the preceeding article on this website) where it is clearly obvious that the Romanian Orthodox Church (BOR) is more interested in promoting Romanianism in the “Diaspora” than Orthodoxy - its sacred role.
The first words in that article are explicit: “…Father Ion Armasi’s [doctoral] work is the first scientific study which details aspects of the mission and Romanian pastoral care given at the global level…” As well, We see that Father Ion Armasi Vartan speaks with authority being: “…Patriarchal Counselor for foreign communities, in the Church interreligious relations sector of the Romanian Patriarchate… “
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, 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.
