An Unceasing Estrangement from Genuine Patristic Orthodoxy I. Introduction From March 6-9, 2014 (New Style), a gathering of the Primates of the official local Churches was held in Constantinople. During this meeting, the assembled Prelates decided to convoke a “Holy and Great Synod” of innovationist Orthodox ecumenists on Pentecost of 2016.

In his homily on the Feast of the Holy Three New Hierarchs (Sunday, November 3, 2014 [Old Style]), His Eminence, Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Phyle stated that this Synod can already “be characterized in advance as a false synod,” which, if it does finally take place, “will render the chasm between the Genuine Orthodox and the ecumenists henceforth unbridgeable.”

Now, are there any objective grounds to support such an evaluation?

A careful study of the history of the “Holy and Great Synod” and of its convocation, as we shall discover in what follows, fully vindicates Metropolitan Cyprian’s position.

Since this is an issue of great importance in the current ecclesiastical climate, which demands from Genuine Orthodoxy a responsible, sober, and well-documented critique, we shall present, in the ensuing pages, an outline of the principal stages in the long-drawnout history of the “Holy and Great Synod” that is being planned by the ecumenists of the Phanar and those of like mind with them. Such an outline will provide us with basic data with which to approach this complex and many-sided issue from a pastoral and missionary perspective.
