The Heresy of Ecumenism and the Patristic Stand of the Orthodox

by Metropolitan Cyprian of Oropos and Fili
Translated by Archbishop Chrysostomos of Etna and Hieromonk Patapios

Number IV of Contributions to a Theology of Anti–Ecumenism

“We have Shepherds and, indeed, Patriarchs, who collectively and, moreover, out of conviction, uphold and propagate heretical beliefs; but we also have a flock that has not been made fully aware that the Faith and salvation are in jeopardy. Thus, since 1920, and especially since 1924, zealots for piety have faced a twofold problem: the perspective of faith, and the perspective of love towards ecumenists and innovators. The theological basis of this twofold perspective has been put to the test and has, unfortunately, divided the anti–ecumenist Old Calendarists. That is to say, while they are all agreed that there is absolutely no room for any ecclesiastical relations and communion with ecumenists, they disagree, nonetheless, about the ecclesiological identity of those who are yet to be condemned as innovators and about the most appropriate pastoral attitude towards them.”
