(Hat tip: D.G, A.A: source: agafa-angel.livejournal.com) It is quite clear that the alliance of the FSB and the MP, having received its assignment and funding, will now try to do everything to disrupt the existing situation in South America. It is certainly better to keep your distance from professional recruiters sent from Moscow. The rector of the Holy Trinity church, Archpriest Valentin Iwaczewicz, told me how when Patriarch Kirill was still a metropolitan, he asked to see that beautiful church, but instead of looking around, he started to insist that Fr. Valentin join the Moscow Patriarchate. Taken aback by the inappropriate behavior of his guest, Fr. Valentin answered that his hierarchy did not give him the right to discuss such matters and that Metropolitan Kirill should make such an offer to Fr. Valentin’s Synod and not to the rector. Metropolitan Kirill’s efforts were for naught. Such an episode speaks volumes not only of Patriarch Kirill’s well-known desire for other people’s property, but also shows his true moral character better than all his homilies “about eternity.”
Certainly, these “insinuating” letters, and “The Days of Russian Culture in South America,” and “round table discussions,” and visits to the continent by miracle-working icons, and threats of legal actions against our clergy, and censures, and tempting offers, and earnest visits with representatives of the RF embassies, and the active organizing of the pro-Kremlin, post-Komsomol movement “Ours,” and all the rest are all links of the same chain and are evidence of the well-funded operation by the Russian Federation to strengthen its presence in South America. The ROCOR(MP) is now truly, and not just symbolically as Fr. Victor Potapov said, representatives of the Russian Federation, a religious-political appendage of it, receiving and carrying out directives from “headquarters.” To paraphrase a Soviet slogan, one can with all confidence attest that when the Kremlin says “we need it!” the ROCOR(MP) answers “you got it!”
“Whither goest thou” ROCOR(MP)?
