Ukraine Orthodox Church – Autocephaly


Autocephaly (/ˌɔːtəˈsɛfəli/; from Greek: αὐτοκεφαλία, meaning “property of being self-headed”) is the status of a hierarchical Christian Church whose head bishop does not report to any higher-ranking bishop. The term is primarily used in Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Independent Catholic churches.

        • “Autocephaly is part of our pro-European and pro-Ukrainian state strategy,” Poroshenko said last month. He called Moscow’s loss of control over the Ukrainian Orthodox church “the fall of the ‘third Rome’ as the most ancient conceptual claim of Moscow for the global domination”.

    • Russian Orthodox Church ‘rupturing’ ties with the Constantinople over Ukraine split
      • Links
      •  Quote
        • “A decision has been made to rupture full communion with the Constantinople Patriarchate,” which means priests from the two churches cannot serve and worshippers cannot take communion together, Hilarion, the bishop in charge of the Russian Orthodox Church’s diplomacy, told journalists in Minsk.
        • Speaking after the meeting of the Holy Synod, or decision-making body, of the Russian Orthodox Church, Hilarion said it does not recognise the decision taken last week by the Constantinople Patriarchate as it has “completely associated itself with the schism”.
        • The decision in Istanbul was “illegal and canonically worthless,” he said. “The Russian Orthodox Church does not accept these decisions, it will not follow them. The schism is still a schism and the schismatics are still schismatics,” he said.
        • The church in Ukraine has been under the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church since the late 1600s, but calls for independence have increased since Moscow’s 2014 annexation of the Crimean Peninsula from Ukraine.

      •  Quote
        • “By taking such anti-canonical decisions and officially recognizing schismatics, the Patriarchate of Constantinople, according to the rules of the church, has itself chosen the path of schism. In view of this, Eucharistic communion of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church with the Patriarchate of Constantinople is currently impossible and is being severed,” reads the decision.
        • “The process of providing tomos is imposed from the outside”: the UOC broke the Eucharistic communion with the Patriarchate of Constantinople
      • “The process of providing tomos about autocephaly is artificial, imposed from outside, does not reflect the internal ecclesiastical necessity, will not bring real church unity and will deepen the division and intensify conflicts among the people of Ukraine,” the UOC said in a statement.

      •  Quote
        • However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov suggested Russia would move to “protect the interests of the faithful” in Ukraine “just as Russia defends the interests of Russians and Russian speakers.”
        • Orthodox Christianity is the dominant religion in both Russia and Ukraine and is seen as one of the few remaining unifying forces between the two nations.

        • Russia and Ukraine trace their Orthodox Christian roots to the same event — the conversion of pagan Prince Vladimir the Great to Christianity in 988.

        • Experts say Saturday represents one of the biggest Christian splits since the Great Schism of 1054 created what are now the Eastern Orthodox and Catholic churches.
        • But the Rev. Cyril Hovorun, a Russian Orthodox priest and professor of theology at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, says the independence of the Ukrainian church has become an important security issue in the wake of Russian aggression.
        • “The Orthodox Church was instrumentalized by the Kremlin for political purposes, and autocephaly is supposed to neutralize this negative influence,” Hovorun told NBC News.
        • Securing religious independence from Russia would be “as significant as the disintegration of the USSR for Ukraine,” wrote Taras Kuzio, a nonresident fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations at Johns Hopkins-SAIS, in a piece for the Atlantic Council. This, he said, would be “the last step Ukraine needs to take in order to become truly independent.”
        • On Friday, the Russian Orthodox Church appealed to Pope Francis, the United Nations and several European leaders to protect the clergy of the Moscow-affiliated branch from facing “humiliating searches,” detentions and interrogations at the hands of Ukrainian authorities.

    •  Profile
      • Daniel 7 is considered by some to be the most important chapter in the book of Daniel, others even consider it the most important chapter in the entire Old Testament for reasons which we will get into later, but certainly one of those reasons is because of its prophetic significance.In Daniel Chapter 7 Daniel has a vision of 4 beasts: a lion, bear, leopard and a “diverse beast”. These beasts are identified as kings and/or kingdoms by the angel who interprets Daniel’s dream starting in verse 17.
        The question is which kingdoms are being referred to with these beasts.

  1. My Beloved Daughter
    • Profile
      • Carolina Revival – 2/3/18. The woman in Mark 5 was considered unclean and soiled by the religious crowd around her. She had been conditioned by her issue to hide and not touch anything, but Jesus invited her to the center of His attention and affection. When you go through extreme disappointment, extreme private issues and extreme pain He doesn’t want you coping on the fringes. He wants you transformed, made whole, reproducing and He wants your identity restored that your issue stole from you. Jesus called her, “My Beloved Daughter.”

Personally I would probably post in the ffmpeg developer mailing list and ask if there’s someone interested.
