In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

The Sunday before the Elevation of the Cross, brothers and sisters, and the Church presents before us the Holy Cross in preparation - and then with the Sunday after the feast, in thanksgiving - for the great feast.

We, with Paul, throughout all the generations, boast of the Cross, and only in...

Defense and Declaration of Cessation of Commemoration of Bishop on Account of the Teaching of Heresy

Letter of Protopresbyter Theodore Zisis to Metropolitan Anthimos of Thessaloniki (March 3, 2017)

Orthodox Ethos is grateful to God to be asked to publish the translation of the declaration of cessation of commemoration of the honorable and upright Protopresbyter Theodore Zisis, submitted to his Metropolitan on the Sunday of Orthodoxy, giving his defense and explanation of the necessity for the drastic measure.

We hope all good-willed and interested Orthodox Christians will take the time to read the text and consider his arguments carefully, for if nothing else it will aid them in increasing their vigilance and watchfulness both for their soul's salvation as well as the unity of the Church and orthodoxy of Her confession - of which we are all co-responsible.

Protopresbyter Theodoros Zisis

His Eminence, Anthimos

Metropolitan of Thessaloniki

Subject: Notification concerning the Cessation of Commemoration

The following excerpt from the homilies of the great Elder and Teacher of the Church,...
