      JRS: If there is ecclesiastical reconciliation at the present time, clearly that would involve
      recognition of all ROCOR bishops by the MP, and of all MP bishops by ROCOR.

      However, in the future, it would appear that bishops-elect would first be approved as
      Orthodox in faith and canonically acceptable, by the Patriarchate.
