Obviously, the number of clerics of the African exarchate of the Russian Orthodox Church will grow, – publicist

As of 2005, there are about 500 clergymen in the Alexandrian Patriarchate.

Now just think about the fact that 102 clerics of this former patriarchy, who went into schism, expressed their desire to go to the ROC. 102! This is 20% of the total. And this despite the fact that such a desire was expressed by clerics who understood that by signing a petition to leave for the still non-existent diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, they would be persecuted and persecuted by Theodore.

And how many of those who are ready to leave, but were not ready to turn up persecution, not being sure that the Russian Orthodox Church will create a diocese? It is obvious that in the near future the number of clerics of the African exarchate of the ROC will grow, perhaps even several times, and it is quite obvious that there will be hierarchs who will publicly declare their desire to leave the schismatic Theodore in the ROC.

Indeed, Vladyka Leonid did a titanic job, and his name will later be highlighted in books about the history of the Church. Axios!
