Ecumenical Patriarch: We Are Not Betraying Orthodoxy – We Are Not Ecumenists

A powerful message was sent to multiple recipients within all the Churches today by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew regarding the issue of ecumenical dialogue.

Addressing Patriarch Neophyte of Bulgaria, who is making a peaceful visit to the Ecumenical Patriarchate, Bartholomew said among other things that he is neither betraying Orthodoxy nor is he supportive of ecumenistic concepts, as they say.

“Through this strategy we are not betraying Orthodoxy, as criticized, nor do we support ecumenistic concepts, but we proclaim to the heterodox and to all the truth of Orthodoxy,” he said characteristically.

I think this is a remarkable statement.

Glad to see that one can dialog without being accused of ecumenism.
