During its October 26 session, the Romanian Orthodox Church Holy Synod dealt with various topics, especially the Ukrainian issue. In this regard, they issued the following statement:
“Taking into account the recent developments in the situation with the Church in Ukraine, the Holy Synod reiterates its recommendation of May 24, 2018 for the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Moscow Patriarchate to arrive at a solution together, while preserving unity of faith and administrative-pastoral freedom, the latter representing a characteristic feature of Orthodoxy.
The Holy Synod also underlines the fact that unity is preserved through co-responsibility and cooperation between the Local Orthodox Churches, by cultivating dialogue and synodality at the pan-Orthodox level, this being a permanent necessity in the life of the Church. The unity of the Church is a holy gift of God, but also a great responsibility of the hierarchs, clergy, and loyal believers. That is why the Holy Synod urges to multiply prayer for unity, and to cultivate through dialogue and reconciliation the fraternal Christian love that offers true freedom.”
