[ND: Just 2 consecutive paragraphs from Svelana Vais' article, "The last stray the retirement of Metropolitan Jonahof All America and new aministrative appointments" ....... Is that Peter Ilchuk on the photo w/+MP?]
"But the OCA administration will never forgive Metropolitan Jonah's attempt to lead the Church under the broad omophor of the ROC MP. OCA members will hever forgive his attempt to exchange the independent status of autocephaly for full subordination to the ROC MP. And noone will forgive his dismissing the former OCA chancellor from his position.
In principle, this is enough to realize how destructive the work of Metropolitan Jonah was for American Orthodoxy. And if we add to this his constant flirtation with the clergy of the ROC/MP's representative office in America which, in its present composition does not distinguish itself by either intelligence or wisdom but rather embodies all the vices of Russia's state church, then we are witnessing the OCA's return to the right course. However, the main events are still to come.
