      Second open letter to the holy Superiors and the holy
      representatives of the twenty Monasteries of the Holy Community of
      the Holy Mount Athos. Locally.

      Communication: Ecumenical Patriarchate

      Holy Superiors and Holy Fathers, Bless

      Okay, I'll bite! From the title one gets the impression that this is a
      letter from the Holy Kinot of Mt Athos. I only assume this because this is what
      it says. But then, it immediately becomes a letter TO the Holy Kinot of Mt
      Athos (. . . that's how you say Community. . .). The long series of seemingly
      disconnected 50 cent words, poor English structure, and even worse logic and
      theology cause me to suspect our true and genuine orthofriends in New York
      reporting on the latest crimes against nature being committed against those
      wild and crazy monks at Esphigmenou, whom we last heard from when under siege
      by Greek Special Forces operating at the behest of the EP. In case you
      wondered what happened there, the answer is "nothing." Come-on guys, Rule No.1 =
      you belong to the EP by Charter; Rule No. 2 = the Greek Constituion forbids
      the presence of schismatics on Athos; Rule No.3, and I realize this is rarely
      observed here in America, it takes a council to mark a heretic. Not a bunch
      of monks.

      It would probably serve Orthodoxy well if the theology for this regular
      assaults were to come from someplace other than the True and Genuine set that
      hovers between New York and Boston. It's amusing that they can't even update
      their own web site.

      Moreover, please stop the Soviet-style polemics. Hasn't anyone at
      Esphigmenou or, for that matter in the New York - Boston True and Genuine propaganda
      machine, noticed that despite claims to the contrary, no one cares? Saying
      the UN, the Council of Europe and the State Department care does not make it so.

      Lastly, the letter criticizes the Press Release manner in which previous
      actions were dealt with. But I guess such criticisms only go one way. What do
      you think a false-flag "open letter" is? Just another press release, but
      from unofficial offices.

      Seriously, get a life, and pray for guidance,

      Vova H.
