The Chile church and convent too??
What is going on?? To make all these people leave. What is happening.. It
makes me wonder. I am really confused and really upset.. So many churches
leaving, churches I love and admire. Abbess Evgenia from the Vladimir
Convent, which I visited last year before they moved to Moss Beach.. They
are now with the ROCiE..???
I am really struggling with this.. Can someone please help me. This is
really bothering me and really upsetting me.. I hate schism.. For those of
you who cant see my face, I am really upset, in a depressed and sad way.
This is a VERY bad situation, I think, the Synod should stop its legal
action and try at any cost to heal this schism. Because its tearing our
church apart, and we will lose many many faithful who are getting sick and
tired of all this ( !&*# ) !!! And we are going to more, unless the
Metropolitan himself does something about this, the best way to talk to
someone is to treat them with love and respect, all this continuous name
calling is doing no good what-so-ever. and its really bothering people like
me, who are victims and simply caught in the middle. This is not the
Orthodox Church I read about from the saints and from the holy hierarchs,
and quite honestly have experienced very little.. This type of thing can
seriously affect someone's faith in others and in his church.
Maybe I am not a good enough person, maybe I am weak. I am too low on the
totem pole to make any kind of a difference. I just don't know what to do..
And I am not the only one.
Someone should tell the people who are high and mighty and way up, on the
power scale, to make a difference. that this is really hurting us, and we
lay folks are caught in the middle, we are innocent in all this, just stop
all ready, you are playing "tug of war" with our hearts and our souls, and
we cant take it anymore.. !!!!!!
Forgive me, but I don't know what to think anymore. I really need help with
I mean Abbess Juliana, Abbess Evgenia, and someone told me that even the
Lesna Convent in France is also considering leaving, if they have not done
so already, I really hope that's not true..
It just really hurts..... :o(
I just.... I just, cant type anymore... I'm sorry.
I don't know.
a terrible sinner.
P.S. I am sorry if anyone takes this the wrong way, email is so hard to
convey emotion and to speak your heart, so please forgive me if I offend
anyone, I truly don't mean to.

My prayers are with you as we all need help in this. That is why ask the
following question: There is a statement on the ROCOR site, Feb., in
Russian. It has been there almost a whole month now....there is no English
translation. Why? Will no one translate this?

- Nektarious- I think this thing has been brewing for a long time. I had no
idea there was even an INTEREST in uniting with the Patriarchate despite some
things said to me several years ago by a former ROCOR priest- now MP priest. I
think one reason people are leaving is that they do not want to be under the
Patriarchate, for a variety of reasons. I cannot help but think another reason
is the treatment Met. Vitaly received on several occasions. Despite ROCOR's
official denial of these events as planned, approved actions, one wonders, as
the perpetrators have not, to my knowledge, been punished for their actions.
This of course, is bound to bring into question one's loyalties to ROCOR. This
is, you understand, just my spin on what has gone on. It is of course, VERY
