On November 7 pseudo-patriarch Philaret (Denisenko) from the “Kyiv Patriarchate” visited the spiritual center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in the USA (the Patriarchate of Constantinople) in South Bound Brook, New Jersey, reports the schismatic organization’s website.

According to information from the “Kyiv Patriarchate’s” website, Philaret (Denisenko) had a meeting with the head of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in America Metropolitan Anthony of Hierapolis and Archbishop Daniel of Pamphilon, the ruling bishop of the UOC of the USA Western Diocese.

“In the course of the warm and amicable conversation the hierarchs discussed the issue of recognition of the Local Ukrainian Orthodox Church’s autocephaly by the Ecumenical Patriarchate,” the official website of the “Kyiv Patriarchate” reports. “The fellowship continued at dinner. The delegations exchanged presents to remember the meeting by.”

The following day, November 8, Denisenko met with the family of Markian Paslavsky – the only volunteer fighter from America who fought on the Ukrainian side and was killed in the Battle of Ilovaisk. He “defended Ukraine” in the volunteered Donbass Battalion. “Patriarch” Denisenko posthumously awarded Markian with the medal “For sacrifice and love for Ukraine.” He called on the killed soldier’s relatives not to grieve for him but to be proud of him because, in his view, Markian gave his life for his native country and is now in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Forgetting Christ’s commandments, embracing ethnophyletism, giving preference to a Caesar, serving Mammon—all of these are symptoms of a serious disease that has affected schismatics of the so-called “Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kyiv Patriarchate” as a result of their falling away from Orthodoxy.
