Sister Vassa (Larin), ” I also Experienced, Together With My Church, the Very Unique Changes We Underwent”

Conducted by Deacon Andrei Psarev

Vienna, September 25, 2014

I find myself still processing this immense transition, and learning from it. I now cross paths with other Orthodox jurisdictions on a regular basis, and am often very impressed by the vibrant church-life that I observe there. This kind of capacity to change, demonstrated by our Church in recent years, is very unique in the history of church divisions, and I am grateful to be part of it.

Metropolitan Kallistos Ware: “ROCOR’s Emphasis On Ascetic and Liturgical Tradition is Very Much Needed Today”

Conducted by Deacon Andrei Psarev

Oxford June 3, 2013,

When I told Fr. George Grabbe, the future Archbishop Gregory, that I had been told that I should not go to Communion in Greek churches if I received Communion in the Russian Church Abroad, he was very indignant. He said, "Who told you that?!" I didn't mention Fr. Constantine's name because I didn't want to make trouble. I just said, "Oh, well -- I heard this." At that time Fr. George Grabbe was very definite: "We are in Communion with the other Orthodox Churches, except for the Moscow Patriarchate, and except for difficulties in Jerusalem."
