So, the meeting of the heads of churches in Amman, initiated by the Russian Orthodox Church as a showoff challenge to Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and "coronation" of Kirill, which has been postponed and delayed a few times, can be considered absolutely insolvent. Not failed, but namely insolvent, void, meaningless, etc.
That's because practically all senior clerics who have serious weight in the religious community, and on whose support the ROC and Kirill personally counted in the war against the Ecumenical Patriarch, have turned down Russia's invitation to participate in this adventurous event.
One of the latest refusals to take part in the "sectarian rally" in Amman was the patriarch of Bulgaria, who will not even send his representatives to Jordan.( Collapse )
