N.B. While we often aggregate news from other sources, with the following article, we owe Jean-Serge Katembue of http://orthodoxie-libre.over-blog.com/ our sincerest apologies. A copy-paste of their article which had spread twice over last week left the impression that this was recently stated and had parochial sanction, when it was in fact over a month and a half old. We had no intention of causing anyone any offense, and it appears the Church site article where it was gleaned from has disappeared. Since we usually only place part of the information from a news site to encourage visits to the author’s site, we are doing that now, as well as redating it to the proper date.
