Romanian Orthodox Church Defends Jericho Parish

The Romanian Orthodox Church has released an article outlining the "necessity" of its establishment of a Romanian Orthodox parish and institutions in the Holy Land. Among other things the article attacks the exclusive control of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem by Greeks (an already widely recognized problem) and claims a verbal assurance from Patriarch Diodoros (Karivalis) of Jerusalem for the Jericho parish. (Why in the past 10 years the Romanian Orthodox Church has pursued the change of this verbal assurance into an actual approval of the parish by the Church of Jerusalem is not stated.) More (in Romanian) here.
