New composition of EP's Holy Synod

You may have said to yourself, "Well, Abp. Elpidophoros is not being thought of kindly by the Church of Greece or by his own archdiocesan hierarchs. Certainly they aren't going to elevate him to a position of even higher authority where he can do more damage." That version of you would be surprised by the below.

(Orthodox Times) - The Ecumenical Patriarchate announced the new members who will form the Holy Synod for the semester 01.09.2022 – 28.02.2023, chaired by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.

The Synodal Hierarchs for the new semester are:

Elder Apostolos of Derkoi, Nikitas of Thyateira and Great Britain, Nikandros of Irenoupolis, Polykarpos of Italy, Stephanos of Kallioupolis and Madytos, Elpidophoros of America, Gerasimos of Petra and Chersonissos, Bartholomew of Smyrna, Kirill of Ierapytnos and Sitia, Vissarion of Spain and Portugal, Andreas of Saranta Ekklisies and Joachim of Prusa.

  1. Don't they do a sort of rotation through the EP's hierarchs? It might just be that Abp. Elpidophoros' name came up in the rotation.
