Alexandre Chtchipkov: « On se souviendra du patriarche Bartholomée comme d’un professeur de schisme »

Aleksandr Shchipkov, the First Deputy Chairman of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate for relations with Society and the Media, member of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, and Professor of the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University was interviewed by RIA Novosti about the latest developments related to the issue of autocephaly in the Ukraine.

Recently, on August 31, we witnessed the meeting of Patriarchs Kirill and Bartholomew in Istanbul, and in the follow-up to the meeting, it was described as being of a fraternal character, which passed in the spirit of mutual understanding.

However the very next day, the Synaxis of the bishops of Constantinople began its work, and Patriarch Bartholomew made rather harsh statements with relation to the Moscow Patriarchate. How can this be put together and understood?

On the part of Patriarch Kirill, the attitude to the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew was and remains fraternal. The calm, patient behavior of Patriarch Kirill testifies to this brotherly attitude. And up until the very last moment, Patriarch Kirill tried to solve the existing problems in fraternal dialog, which, in his words: “occurs within a single body – the Body of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, and imposes on us a certain accountability and duty, but also gives us strength and inspiration.”
