(ortodossia-in-occidente) Hierarchs of the Synod of Milan made another vicar Bishop for Metropolitan Angelos of Aulonos and Boetia this week. This gives the hierarch two vicars, a sufficient number to unquestionably begin consecrations of more Bishops in Greece independently. (While two is technically sufficient, three is usually considered a “minor Synod” or a sufficient group that under normal circumstances leaves the intent of the Church unquestioned.) There is no indication as to Metropolitan Angelos’ intent, however, in the article. There are currently four major Florinite Synods in Greece.
There were almost no words in the article, which consisted of a number of pictures of an elaborate ceremony and various seated hierarchs, the only words being the name of the newly enthroned Bishop: Gabriel, listed as vicar for Aulonos and Boetia.
