Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese Blames ROEA for Dialogue Failures
The patriarchal Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese of the Two Americas has released the report for its upcoming archdiocesan clergy-laity Congress on the state of the dialogue between itself and the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate in America (ROEA), the original Romanian Orthodox diocese for North America and a constituent diocese of the American Orthodox Church (OCA). In the report the Archdiocese blames the failure of its dialogue with the ROEA on "a fundamentally different understanding of dialogue, dispute resolution, and processes equipped to heal division" and not its refusal to consider a solution that would include unity with the OCA (as opposed to the Bucharest Patriarchate) or its failure to follow the due diligence practices already implemented by the ROEA. The full report can be found here.
