OrthoAnalytika

Today Fr. Anthony discusses the Moscow Patriarchate's establishment of an African Exarchate in the territory of the ancient Patriarchate of Alexandria with canonist, Fr. Harry Linsinbigler.  They talk about how this differs from other parallel jurisdictions (e.g. in America) and the degree to which this will make it more difficult to effect Orthodox reconciliation.

Matthew 2:13-23; Galatians 1:11-19.  Without effort, we will get truth and love wrong and mess up our relationships.  It was true for Saints Luke and Cleopas, for Saint Paul, and (alas) for Herod.  It will be true for us and will affect our marriages and Church membership, too.  But God is offering us a solution.  Enjoy the show!

This is a recording of Fr. Anthony Perkins' YouTube Livestream from 7/13/2020.  In it, he talks about how stupidity is overdetermined (and not just demonic or agenda-driven), a couple of the things that make intersectionality such a perverse and counter-productive religion, and how Orthodox Christians are both culpable for it and responsible for replacing it with Authenticity.
