Архиєпископ_Юрій.jpgConstantinople Patriarchate is ready to help the Orthodox Ukrainians unite and is waiting the representatives of Churches and President of Ukraine to turn to it with this issue.

This was stated by the Primate of Canadian UOC Metropolitan Yuri (Kalishchuk) during a round table in Ukrinform agency.

“I would like first of all to congratulate you on behalf of His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew... Patriarch emphasized that the Constantinople Church never forgets that she is the mother church of Ukrainian Orthodoxy. It has been repeated many times. The Patriarchy is watching the situation in Ukraine and considers the ideal solution to get the unified Orthodoxy. And it will work on uniting Orthodoxy in Ukraine, this is a perfect position,” he said.

Metropolitan Yuri said that among Ukrainian Orthodox believers there are various attitudes: pro-Ukrainian and pro-Moscow ones. But flexibility of the Church enables to meet the needs of people with different views.

“Constantinople Patriarchate is waiting for the request and guidance from the Ukrainian Orthodox jurisdictions here, but first of all it is waiting for astep from the President of Ukraine, so that he expressed the willingness that the Patriarchate of Constantinople helped in this situation,” Canadian Primate says.

    Constantinople Patriarchate needs Poroshenko's permission? Whatever for? That's the problem with Constantinople. It kisses Moscow's dupah! Otherwise there would already be a cannonized independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church- Kyiv Patriarchy. Let Moscow Patriarchate allow Putin inform their decisions. That is not for Ukraine. This is what has always been wrong with the ROC. If Constantinople is the mother of Ukrainian Orthodoxy then it is not a very good one. Ukrainian Orthodoxy is divided because of her capitulating to Moscow as a result,she will have her work cut out for her. And if she wants a unified UOC to be a force for unity and peace in Ukraine then she better get to it! Poroshenko should have nothing to say about it. http://www.secreti.info/religion23.html

    Вдумайтесь, без криков, истерик и "патриотизма". Кому предоставлять автокефалию? Единой Украинской церкви? А где она? Для начала её надо создать. А потом уже, даже не предоставлять
