The Ecumenical and Romanian Patriarchates on Anti-Crete Activism

Someone recently leaked a letter from the Ecumenical Patriarchate to the Church of Greece requesting the control of certain clergy and hierarchs that have been going around and criticizing the Holy and Great Council. A translation with comments by the Orthodox scholars at Fordham can be found here. However, I think the letter itself is a bit harsher than the comments let on.

More recently the Romanian Patriarchate has released a similar appeal to bring to order those involved “in rebellion and denigration of the Council in Crete”. The Romanian Patriarchate one is particularly well-reasoned.
