Hilarion Addresses the WCC

Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, who leads Russian Church’s Department for External Church Relations, spoke to the World Council of Churches last month. You may read the Metropolitan’s address on the W.C.C. site: “The Voice of the Church Must Be Prophetic.” They are words that the W.C.C. delegates need to hear, though perhaps they could not understand the deviation from the typical Gramscian script. Metropolitan Hilarion reminds me here of Fr. Siarhei Hardun’s speech to the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. General Assembly, about which I wrote in “My Kind of Ecumenism.” If Orthodox churchmen continue to testify before the heterodox as they should, the wayward may stop inviting them to their gatherings, despite the organizers’ multiculti values. For now, though, let us rejoice while men speak the truth in love.
