Even though there has been news from Romania with a general email to many ROEA clergy and laity signed by a Nicolae Morusca August 20, 2013, where he insults our OCA Metropolitan Tikhon, our ROEA Archbishop Nathaniel and each ROEA member, calling us all to heretical phyletism, presuming to instruct us from there [with impertinent insolence and “solutions” from the 1950’s for today’s problems] on how we should comport ourselves here in North America, purposely ignoring the fact that many of us and most of our children are Americans and Canadians as well as ROEA members, and that our Vatra Episcopate is based here in the Autocephalous Orthodox Church in America, nothing new has happened regarding the ROEA (OCA) and ROAA (BOR) unity/merger issue.

In fact, at the 80th Annual ROEA Episcopate Congress held September 28-29, 2012 in Detroit Michigan, our JDC ( Dialogue Commission) described the communication as being at a “stalemate”, and talks at an impasse.

Therefore, the May 2012 Administrator article remains valid.

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.
