      Dear Father John,



      "Bishops-elect would first be approved as Orthodox in faith and canonically
      acceptable, by the Patriarchate".



      In doing so, would the MP act as mother Church or as sister Church?



      Do you still hold that the contemplated unia would be a "cessation of
      disunion without changing of allegiance"? Which allegiance is it going to
      be?



      In Christ,



      Vladimir Kozyreff
