NFTU: The well-known Izhevsk Fathers in Udmurtia, Russia, have written a reply to Met. Aganfangel’s answer to recent letter of protest. The letter by the Izhevsk Fathers, who are supporters of Abp. Sophrony and Bp. Dionysius, concerns the recent controversy. Also of note is Abp. Sophrony’s remonstrance to the recent Odessa meeting of 3 ROCOR-A Bishops, which forms part of the background to all of this, along with the meeting itself. Met. Agafangel responded to the criticism of Abp. Sophrony about the recent Odessa meeting (Abp. Sophrony maintains in his reply that it must be 3 bishops, not counting the Metropolitan).
Letter from Izhevsk Fathers to Metropolitan Agafangel
But the Lord teaches: “He who loves the father or mother more than me, isn’t worthy of Me” (Mf. 10:37). And therefore when we see that our father goes on a false way, we dare to speak contrary because otherwise we will be traitors of sacred Church.
