Inter-Orthodox Deliberation

After a Trisagion for the repose of the soul of the ever-memorable Archbishop Chrysostomos II of Athens (+2010) an Inter-Orthodox Deliberation took place at 10 a.m. on Friday March 8/21, 2014 in the Monastery of the All-Immaculate Virgin in Megara with thirteen Hierarchs from the Churches of the G.O.C. of Greece under the presidency of His Beatitude Archbishop Kallinikos, a representation from the Church Romania under Metropolitan Vlasie, consisting of three hierarchs, and a representation from the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad headed by its president Metropolitan Agafangel and one bishop.

The main issue of discussion was the draft of the document The True Orthodox Church in Opposition to the Heresy of Ecumenism: Dogmatic and Canonical Issues During this deliberation each article of the document was examined, the hierarchs having expressed agreement on it, in principle, some days prior. They discussed other dogmatic and canonical issues and by the Grace of God, the many-hour deliberation came to a close in full agreement.
