unless it is the following (dated Oct. 16/29 2001):
"[...] (After this communique was written, new information was received
which confirms the bishops' worst fears. In consequence of this the
Council of Bishops has been forced to revoke the commemoration of the name
of Metropolitan Vitaly at the divine services.) [...]"
This does *not* mean that we cannot serve molebens... the commemoration Bp.
Gabriel speaks of is the "official" commemorations of the Church's
hierarchy. It was originally intended that Vladyka Vitaly's name would
have been commemorated at the petition "For the Orthodox Episcopate of the
Russian Church..." together with that of Vladyka Laurus.
