THE VOICE OF ORTHODOXY: METROPOLITAN SERAPHIM OF PIRAEUS
By Protopresbyter Theodoros Zisis, professor of the Theological School of the Aristotelian University of Hjessaloniki, From the Greek Orthodox magazine “Theodromia” (©eoSgonCa), June 13,h, 2014 (the article was initially composed in 2007). Translated by the Holy Monastery of Pantokratoros (Melissochori, Tljessaloniki, Greece) and edited for clarification by the Greek Orthodox Brotherhood of St. Poimen.
For decades now the pan-heresy of Ecumenism infects the Orthodox faith and life. The shepherds, the guardians of the flock who should be alert and chase away the wolves of the papist and protestant heresies, many of them keep silent and hide, either out of fear and cowardice or so that they may not fall in disfavor of the powerful, while others have succumbed to the heresies and like wolves in sheepskins spiritually maul the flock. Many presbyters and monks have assumed the protection of the faith but so has the flock itself as well, all of them with spectacular candor.
