MatthewBresthenaReBaptismEng The Position of Bp. Kirykos Regarding Re‐Baptism  Differs From the Position of Bp. Matthew of Bresthena    When  Bp.  Kirykos  receives  New  Calendarists,  Florinites,  ROCOR  faithful,  etc,  under  his  omophorion,  he  insists  on  rebaptising  them  even  if  they  had  already  been  baptized  in  the  correct  form  of  triple  immersion  and  invocation of the Holy Trinity. He insists on doing this due to his belief that  he  is  the  only  valid  bishop  left  on  earth  and  that  anyone  baptized  out  of  communion  with  him,  even  if  baptized  in  the  correct  form,  is  in  need  of  re‐ baptism by his hands. But was this the position of Bp. Matthew of Bresthena?    In  1937,  Bp.  Matthew  of  Bresthena  issued  an  Encyclical  in  which  he  declared the following:    “…We  knock  against  the  slander  that  supposedly  we  re‐baptize  or  request the repetition of the service of marriage. We request only, according to  our  sacred  obligation,  as  Genuine  Orthodox  Christians,  to  follow  the  Sacred  Ecclesiastical  Tradition,  and  according  to  which,  we  must  guide  the  faithful  towards  salvific  pastures,  and  thus  to  those  approaching  the  Genuine  Orthodox  Church,  those  who  are  of  age  we  receive  by  libellus,  as  for  the  children which were baptized by Schismatics, we re‐chrismate them according  to the 1st Canon of St. Basil the Great.”    So  there  you  have  it.  Bishop  Matthew  of  Bresthena  adhered  to  the  correct practice of the Second and Quinisext Ecumenical Councils, and of St.  Basil the Great, whereby he received New Calendarist converts to his Synod  only  by  chrismation,  and  sometimes  only  by  mere  libellus,  because  the  converts had already received the correct form of baptism. This clearly correct  method  is  that  practiced  today  by  the  Kiousis  Synod,  Makarios  Synod,  Nicholas  Synod,  Gregorians,  Maximites,  HOCNA,  Tikhonites,  Valentinites,  ROCIE, etc. Almost every Old Calendarist Synod adheres to the Patristic use  of  receiving  Orthodox  converts  by  chrismation.  Thus  all  of  these  Synods  prove by their methods to be truly “Matthewite,” since they adhere to Bishop  Matthew’s  practice.  Only  Bp.  Kirykos  has  fallen  from  this  principle  and  has  ignored the Patristic Matthewite approach, by beginning to “re‐baptize” those  who are already baptized in the canonical form of triple immersion!

RomaniansReBaptismEng The Position of Bp. Kirykos’ Romanian Counterparts  Regarding Re‐Baptism is Extremely Hypocritical    The  Romanians  who  are  in  communion  with  Bp.  Kirykos  require  all  New  Calendarists,  Florinites,  Glicherians,  ROCOR  faithful,  etc,  to  be  re‐ baptized,  even  if  their  baptism  was  performed  in  the  canonical  manner,  by  triple  immersion  and  invocation  of  the  Holy  Trinity.  They  have  even  begun  re‐baptizing  people  who  had  already  been  received  into  the  Matthewite  Church  by  chrismation.  Thus,  in  Cyprus,  several  laymen  who  had  been  received  even  decades  ago  by  chrismation,  are  now  being  rebaptized  by  the  Romanian bishop Parthenios! So then, one might ask, all of these years were  they communing or not? If they were communing as members of the Church,  then how is it that they are now being regarded as foreign to the Church and  in need of baptism? This isn’t Orthodox ecclesiology, it is blasphemy against  the Holy Spirit, a crime that the Lord has declared to be unforgivable.    But  this  very  act  of  rebaptizing  by  the  Romanians  is  extremely  hypocritical considering their own origins. The truth is that according to their  own  principles,  they  themselves  are  very  much  in  need  of  being rebaptized.  This is because the Romanian bishops derive their Apostolic Succession from  Bishop  Victor  Leu,  who  was  consecrated  in  1949  by  three  bishops  of  the  Russian  Orthodox  Church  Abroad.  The  main  consecrating  hierarch  who  actually  passed  the  Apostolic  Succession  (for  the  other  two  were  mere  witnesses, as is the case), was Metropolitan Seraphim (Lyade) of Berlin.     Metropolitan Seraphim was actually born into a Protestant family and  was “baptized” by sprinkling in the Lutheran Church. When he was received  into  the  Russian  Orthodox  Church,  he  was  received  by  mere  chrismation,  despite not  having the  correct form  of  baptism. He was  then  elevated to  the  deaconate and priesthood within the Russian Orthodox Church. However, on  1st  of  September, 1923, he was  “consecrated”  as  a “bishop”  by  Renovationist  hierarchs who had been anathematized a year earlier by Patriarch St. Tikhon.  In  1929,  the  Renovationist  “bishop”  Seraphim  Lade  was  received  into  communion  by  the  Russian  Orthodox  Church  Abroad,  but  he  was  not  reordained nor was a cheirothesia read on him, but he was received by mere  repentance.  Thus,  according  to  the  strict  point  of  view,  Metropolitan  Seraphim  Lyade  was  both  un‐baptized  and  un‐consecrated!  Yet  this  Metropolitan  Seraphim  is  the  very  source  of  priesthood  of  the  Romanian  hierarchs. Thus, if they have their origins from a bishop who was un‐baptized  and  un‐consecrated,  how  is  their  baptism  and  priesthood  valid?  If  the

contracerycii04 THE TEACHING OF BLESSED MATTHEW OF BRESTHENA  REGARDING FREQUENT RECEPTION OF COMMUNION  Written in 1933 by Archimandrite Matthew [Carpathaces] of Great Laura,  the future Bishop of Bresthena (1937‐1949), and Metropolitan of Athens  (1949‐1950), of the Genuine Orthodox Church of Greece (+14 May, 1950).  Is it possible, you ask me, to receive Communion? Why, don’t we have  to become saints in order to be worthy, as Blessed Chrysostom calls out in his  liturgy,  “The  Holies  for  the  holy?”  And  who  can  become  a  saint?  You’re  not  able?  Then,  are  the  Holy  Scriptures  false?  “And  ye  shall  be  holy  men  unto  me  (Exodus 22:31);” “I said ye are gods (Psalms 81:6).” This is what God says about  us.  So,  who  is  able?  As  many  as  desire  this,  cleanse  yourselves  from  every  bodily and spiritual sin, and you will immediately become saints. I do not tell  you this myself, God says it through the Apostle. “So clean yourselves, brethren,  from  all  filthiness  of  the  flesh  and  spirit,  perfecting  holiness  in  the  fear  of  God  (2  Corinthians 7:1).” But is it difficult? I do not deny it. But it is probably not as  difficult as you think. Consider this…    An  infant  or  even  a  very  sinful  old  man,  upon  leaving  the  baptismal  font, is he not worthy to commune of the Holy Mysteries? Yes, and who can  doubt this? Baptism is a divine bath, it is a purification of sins, it is a spiritual  rebirth. In the baptismal font we bury the old person of sin, and we put on the  new man, Jesus Christ. “For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have  put on Christ (Galatians 3:27),” says he who ascended to the third heaven. So,  what if it was possible to multiply the Mystery of Holy Baptism? What I am  trying to say is, if it was possible for us to be baptized every time we wished,  then you would no longer have any doubt that we worthily commune of the  Mystery  of  the  Frightful  Eucharist.  So  if  I  prove  to  you  that  every  time  you  wish, it is  possible to  enter  the  baptismal font and  to  get baptized, then  you  would no longer be able to leave [i.e., shun the Mystery of Holy Communion].  You must conclude then, that it is possible to become worthy of the Mystery  of Holy Communion.     And  is  not  Repentance,  my  brethren,  a  second  baptismal  font,  into  which  it  is  possible  to  enter  every  time  we  wish  and  as  many  times  as  we  wish, and nobody can prevent us? Is not Repentance a font equivalent to the  font  of  Holy  Baptism?  “Tears  dropped  are  equivalent  to  the  font.”  Yes,  the  tear,  whenever it drops from our eyes for our sins, has the power of Holy Baptism.  “And  toilsome lamentation brings back the  grace  which departed for some time.” A  lamentation  from  the  heart  ascends  to  heaven,  and  brings  down  that  grace,  which we have lost because of the multitude of our sins. It is not my opinion,

HolyFathersReBaptismEng The Position of Bp. Kirykos Regarding Re‐Baptism  Differs From the Canons of the Ecumenical Councils      In  the  last  few  years,  Bp.  Kirykos  has  begun  receiving  New  Calendarists and even Florinites and ROCOR faithful under his omophorion  by  re‐baptism,  even  if  these  faithful  received  the  correct  form  of  baptism  by  triple  immersion  completely  under  water  with  the  invocation  of  the  Holy  Trinity.  He  also  has  begun  re‐ordaining  such  clergy  from  scratch  instead  of  reading  a  cheirothesia.  But  this  strict  approach,  where  he  applies  akriveia  exclusively for these people, is different from the historical approach taken by  the Holy Fathers of the Ecumenical Councils.       Canon  7  of  the  Second  Ecumenical  Council  declares  that  Arians,  Macedonians,  Sabbatians,  Novatians,  Cathars,  Aristeri,  Quartodecimens  and  Apollinarians are to be received only by a written libellus and re‐chrismation,  because  their  baptism  was  already  valid  in  form  and  did  not  require  repetition. The Canon reads as follows:      “As for those heretics who betake themselves to Orthodoxy, and to the  lot of the saved, we accept them in accordance with the subjoined sequence and  custom; viz.: Arians, and Macedonians, and Sabbatians, and Novatians, those  calling themselves  Cathari,  and  Aristeri,  and the  Quartodecimans,  otherwise  known as Tetradites, and Apollinarians, we accept when they offer libelli (i.e.,  recantations in writing) and anathematize every heresy that does not hold the  same beliefs  as the catholic and  apostolic  Church of  God,  and are  sealed first  with holy chrism on their forehead and their eyes, and nose, and mouth, and  ears; and in sealing them we say: “A seal of a free gift of Holy Spirit”…”      The same Canon only requires a re‐baptism of individuals who did not  receive the correct form of baptism originally (i.e. those who were sprinkled  or who were baptized by single immersion instead of triple immersion, etc).  The Canon reads as follows:      “As  for  Eunomians,  however,  who  are  baptized  with  a  single  immersion,  and  Montanists,  who  are  here  called  Phrygians,  and  the

WitnessStavros2eng OPEN RESPONSE  to the Letter of Mr. Anthonios Markou  (Translation from the original Greek)    Dear brother in Christ Anthony,    With  much  grief  I  read  your  letter  to  brother  Theoharis.    I  was  grieved  because  you  said  other  things  when  I  visited  you  with  Father  Pedro,  his  wife  Lucia  and  Theoharis,  and  now  you  write  other  things  in  your  letter.    Do  you  know about the truth?  Of course, you know. Do you know about Orthodoxy? Of  course, you know. Do you know about the Holy Fathers?  Of course, you know.   Do you know about the canonical order of the Church?  Of course, you know all  these things.  But how do you ignore them now?                On the first paragraph of your letter you write:       “Theoharis, my child, I send you this message in order to express my sadness. Iʹd  ask you if you are ashamed of your behaviour, but shame is a virtue and I don’t think you  have it...”    Brother  Anthony,  Theoharis  is  a  golden  child,  and  very  shy.  Whoever  knows  him  very  well  knows  that  a  pure  and  God‐fearing  lad  like  Theoharis  is  rare to find in today’s society.  Although he grew up as Evangelical (Protestant)  and  comes  from  a  third‐generation  Evengalical  Greek  family,  he  decided  to  investigate  matters  of  Faith  and  was  baptized  five  years  ago  in  the  Russian   Orthodox  Church  in  Exile.  The  fact  that  Theoharis  went  from  being  an  Evangelical  to  discovering  Genuine  Orthodoxy  is  a  small  miracle.  The  fact  he  remained  and  lives  as  a  chaste  lad,  a  zealot  for  things  divine,  a  struggler  for  Patristic  Piety,  and  with  temperance  and  respect,  is  the  greater  miracle.  Admiration and high esteem is due.  If only there were others like Theoharis in  Greece  and  in  the  world  in  general,  Orthodoxy  would  also  shine!    There  wouldn’t be today’s chaos we see among the “GOC” of whichever faction.    The truth must be said. Theoharis is very shy.  He has the virtue of shame,  and those who know him can verify this truth.  And for this reason he couldn’t  endure the disgracefulness of Bp. Kirykos Kontogiannis!  Those who do not have  the  virtue  of  shame  are  those  who  accept  Bp.  Kirykos’  scandals  and  especially  those who give excuses in order for the scandals to continue!  So if there is any
