Fr. Nektarios of Zographou breaks communion with EP

Post by Maria »

Eighty-five year old Fr. Nektarios of Zographou Monastery, Mount Athos, has broken communion with the heretical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew.
Elder Nektarios is 85 years old and has been a monk on Mount Athos for 44 years. A few days ago he broke communion with all Ecumenists.
He left Mount Athos without asking permission from the Abbot of the Zographou Monastery who is in communion with the heretical Ecumenists.
He said that he was no longer able to behold the betrayal of the Orthodox Faith.
May many more follow his example.

In Christ,
+Fr. Panagiotes

Interesting news ! Thanks, Fr Panagiotes. And to Maria for relaying it. Maybe there WILL be a cascade of defections from the EP like this, some inspired by Fr Nektarios' decisive action.
