Re: [orthodox-synod] ROCOR Canonicity
- I believe St John was ordained by Metropolitan Anthony, then head of ROCOR
in 1934 with appointment to the Shanghai cathedra.
There is a pamphlet entitled " The Truth about the Russian Church Abroad" by
M.Rodzianko which is available for downloading and may answer a lot of your
questions. I don't remember the location.
The millions of people who were and are members of ROCOR are living
witnesses to its canonicity.
