Tomos of Autocephaly for Ukraine to get concrete date

(EP) - In preparation of the meeting of the Holy and Sacred Synod on 27-29 November, 2018, the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople reiterates its sacred decision to grant the Tomos of Autocephaly to the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

While the preparation process for the Holy Council (SOBOR) of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine is underway, the concrete date within December 2018, will be presented for the confirmation and announcement by the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.

  1. In other words, it was last month that the schismatics started congratulating each other on receiving the Tomos, but the Tomos just keeps getting delayed. A Ukrainian waiting for Godot, if you will.

  2. And the Tomos that the EP is talking about giving them is not actually autocephaly.

  3. Referring to a decision as sacred does not actually make such a decision sacred. Lord have mercy on us all.
