Re: The Salvation of Francis of Assisi
- *Xenos* Wel Al St.Mark of Thessolonica was the only Patriarch to oppose the idea of a false reunion w/Rome to get aid from Islamic invasion. St.Gregory the Great was right to write St.John the Lesser not to attempt to call himself the "Universal Bishop" after some had convince St.John to adopt this false title. (a title the RC church now bestows upon the pope of Rome)
**So this means Bishops are not perfect, we all know this in Holy Orthodoxy explaining why we have no such thing as papal infallibility (even if used sparingly since adopted in Vatican1 is heresy). Frankly I have long stated no matter how silly, stupid anyone, Bishop, priest, monk, nun laity can get in Holy Orthodoxy it will not ruin the True Church.
**I still have people asking me after 12 years of conversion why I don't know Greek or Russian etc well? My only response is that Christ wasn't Greek, Russian & never dictated we had only 1 language. 2nd I offer we don't need a codified language like the Roman church attempted w/Latin & Islam does w/Aramic. When the person listening is Orthodox they usually just stare in shock.
