Russian Orthodox Church welcomes the autocephaly of MOC-OA


The recognition of the autocephaly of the church in Macedonia by the Serbian Orthodox Church is a joyful event, which is expected to be discussed at the next meeting of the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church, said Deputy Head of the Foreign Affairs Department of the Moscow Patriarchate, Archpriest Nikolai Balashov.

“We rejoice together with our Serbian and Macedonian brothers. We have been waiting for this event for many years. And now came the hour of God’s will. I believe that the Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church will give an appropriate response at its next meeting,” Balashov told TASS regarding yesterday’s announcement by Serbian Patriarch Porfirij at the joint Aryan liturgy in the church “St. Clement of Ohrid” in Skopje that the Holy Archbishop decided to recognize the autocephalous status of the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archbishopric.
