On November 1, 2014, prominent Orthodox writer and opponent of ecumenism Hieromonk Vissarion of the Bulgarian Zograf Monastery on Holy Mount Athos took the great schema, reports the Bulgarian Patriarchate’s official website.

His confessor, Schema-Archimandrite Amvrosios, Abbot of Zograf Monastery, led him by his mantle (mantiya). In the schema the writer-hieromonk was named Demetrius, in honor of Greatmartyr Demetrius of Thessaloniki, the Myrrh-Streamer, who was a champion of the Orthodox faith.
