UOC-MP Is Prepared for Dialogue with UAOC and UOC-Kyiv Patriarchate

Last week in an interview to Kp.ua, the Administrator of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Moscow Patriarchate (UOC-MP) Metropolitan Antonii (Pakanych) of Boryspil spoke about the prospects of the dialogue with the Kyivan Patriarchate, Religion.in.ua reported.

In his interview, Metropolitan Antonii stressed that the UOC-MP is prepared to carry on the dialogue with the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (UAOC) and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyivan Patriarchate (UOC-KP) and that the UOC-MP “now has an official dialogue with the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.” He admitted that no dialogue with the Kyiv Patriarchate has been launched and that “only consultations were conducted on a possible format of the dialogue.”

In answer to the question “why it was not possible even to start a dialogue with the Kyivan Patriarchate,” Metropolitan Antonii answered, “Many ordinary members of our church still remember the conflicts of 1990s, the struggle for church buildings, clashes between communities including the attempt to seize the Kyiv Cave Monastery. This considerably complicates the preparation of the dialogue. In addition, there are serious differences between our church and the Kyivan Patriarchate regarding possible ways of overcoming the divide. Our church insists that all those who deliberately broke the connection with the world Orthodoxy should repent and return to the church communication. However, the Kyivan Patriarchate does not admit its guilt in the tragedy of the church divide. But despite these difficulties, we believe that the Lord will open to us ways to overcome the church divide in Ukraine.”

    Предлагал Антошке (Паканичу): дай подучу, просвещу, может тогда сумеешь помочь религии выйти из заблуждения.Не захотел. Теперь хоть головой бейся об стену: мира среди частей заблудшей религии уж не будет. Пришел конец христианской религии:не храмам ее и народу, а самой заблудшей идеологии.

      Подобные хульные речи о "конце" Христова Церковь слышит от сатанистов - прямых или интравертных, - на протяжении всей своей истории. Одним сатанюгой больше - одним меньше. Для Церкви это безопасно, ибо и "врата ада не оделют ея".
