Patriarch Irinej on the Episcopal Assemblies

In reference to the Episcopal Assembly of North America, Patriarch Irinej (Gavrilovich) of Pech stated in a recent interview that the Serbian Orthodox Church is "doing everything so that [it] survives on this continent." He went on to say that the Serbian Orthodox Church in North America "will exist here as long as there is a national consciousness among the people that they belong to the Serbian family and culture." The full interview can be found here. I fear more and more that our hope here in the West of having our own Local Orthodox Churches is an incredibly blind one...
