True Orthodoxy in Russia

(NFTU: New Jersey, 7/24/2005) From his hospital bed, Bishop Anthony (Grabbe) venerated the Wonderworking Kursk-Root Icon.

The icon was brought to the hospital by Bishop Gabriel of Manhattan (ROCOR-L) at the request of family members. Bishop Anthony is reportedly near death and is in critical condition. During his youth in Belgrade, the future Bishop Anthony would carry the icon in processions, sometimes in extremely dangerous conditions.

Archimandrite Anthony left the ROCOR Synod as an Archimandrite for the Greek Old Calendar Church in 1995 according to the official website of the ROAC, for reasons that are still hotly disputed today. He was made a Bishop in one of the Greek Old Calendar jurisdictions. In 2001, Bishop Anthony entered the ROAC as a retired Bishop.

More details concerning Bishop Anthony’s health are forthcoming.
