THE PATRIARCHAL SYNOD MEETS TODAY
The Ecumenical Patriarchate Synod that meets at the Fener, Istanbul today
is expected to lift the measures imposed on Archbishop Christodoulos of
Athens and All of Greece, while it is expected to express satisfaction for
the Church of Greece decision to respect the Patriarchal and Synodical Act
of 1928. In addition, it will accept the election of the Metropolites in
the so-called new countries.
The Russian Church avoids to take sides and hopes that an agreement will
be reached as soon as possible between the two parties taking under
consideration the existing circumstance, according to letters sent by the
Moscow Patriarchate to the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
The good climate in the relations between the Church of Greece and the
Ecumenical Patriarchate will be sealed with the visit of Archbishop
Christodoulos to the Fener.
