Most of the priesthood of the Church of Alexandria was against the recognition of the OCU from the very beginning, – Greek hierarch

Metropolitan Seraphim of Piraeus said that a significant part of the clergy and believers of the Patriarchate of Alexandria did not agree with the recognition of the OCU, writes agapotonxristo.blogspot.com.

“A significant part of the clergy of all ranks, as well as believers, from the very beginning opposed the recognition by Patriarch Theodore of the church formation of the Kiev schismatics and the displacement of the canonical Church under the leadership of Metropolitan Onufry,” the hierarch said.

According to him, “some hierarchs of the Patriarchate of Alexandria not only protested or did not want to recognize Ukrainian “autocephaly”, but also expressed a clear refusal.”

“Unfortunately, Patriarch Theodore ignored these ‘protests’ and ‘refusals’ of the metropolitans and other clergy of the Church of Alexandria, and instead of convening a Synod to resolve this most serious issue, he proceeded to recognize Ukrainian autocephaly, violating the Synodal system,” Metropolitan Seraphim added. .
