were "making hay" out of.
A couple of years before then-archimandrite Kallistos Ware was
made a bishop, he was present at a service in the ROCOR convent in London
when Vl. Vitaly visited--and Vl. Vitaly invited him to concelebrate. Fr.
Kallistos had to decline because his own bishop had told him not to. (I
heard this from Bishop Kallistos himself). For several years, Fr.
Kallistos had been celebrating the Divine Liturgy in the convent.
If this had happened during or after the Panteleimonites' schism,
it could equally (or even more so) have been "made hay of".
Fr. John R. Shaw
