He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Timely View

He [the Pope] has been outside of the Church for ten centuries now, he is not a canonical bishop, he has no relation whatsoever to the reality of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Christ. It is one thing to receive him as a canonical bishop and quite another to speak to him as [being] a heterodox in order to reveal to him the truth of the Orthodox Faith and Tradition.

Yep. What he said.

I've lately thought that if the Orthodox wanted to completely repudiate the authority of the Pope, they could consecrate their own Patriarch of Rome. PROBLEM SOLVED.
