Online translation of divine services and sacraments will be an excuse for why the selected OCU churches are empty. This was stated by the chairman of the Synodal Department of the Russian Orthodox Church for relations between the Church, society and the media, Vladimir Legoyda, commenting on the book presented by the OCU, which contains publications on the topic of “virtual sacraments”, writes Phraza.
According to him, the translation of divine services and sacraments online, apparently, is the dream of many representatives of the OCU, and in this way the OCU wants to show the absence of parishioners in churches.
“In general, it is understandable: virtual“ churches ”are virtual“ sacraments ”. Again, there will be an excellent justification for why the OCU temples, forcibly taken by the schismatics from the canonical Church, are constantly empty. They will say: “All our flock” receive communion “virtually.” And the fact that such statements are unverifiable is more of a plus than a minus for the schismatics, ”summed up Vladimir Legoyda.
As previously reported, the practice of “online communion” during the quarantine period was carried out by the OCU cleric Igor Savva, who, along with the well-known OCU propagandists Dmitry Gorev and Tatyana Derkach, is also a co-author of the publication.
