> Then Athanasios you condenm us all. Not long ago I recall many
"Orthodox" (in many, many places across the country) standing together
before the miracle working icon of the Sitka Mother of God sing an
Akathist to her. I saw all sorts of Jurisdictions in under one roof.
Does that mean in your mind that our prayer was Ecumenist?
Of course not, if the "Orthodox jurisdictions" you refer
to were, in fact, Orthodox. Also, if it was *led* by the
Orthodox, that would be fine too. But to pray with the
heterodox on a basis of *equality* (as appears to have
happened in Germany), or even with the heterodox *leading*
the prayers, would be contrary to the holy Canons and an
act of Ecumenism.
Remember: "He who sings PRAYS TWICE."
