Apel al Bisericii Ortodoxe Sârbe cu privire la condamnarea Arhiepiscopului Ioan de Ohrida (RO, EN)

Apel al Bisericii Ortodoxe Sârbe cu privire la condamnarea Arhiepiscopului Ioan de Ohrida

După ani de persecuţie, hărţuire, arest şi închisoare, Preafericitul Ioan, Arhiepiscop de Ohrida şi Mitropolit de Scopje, recunoscut de întreaga ortodoxie ca fiind păstorul vechii Arhiepscopii de Ohrida, a fost condamnat ieri, 11 mai la 2 ani şi jumătate de închisoare pentru acuzaţii false de fraudă, ca rezultat al influenţei staliniste a guvernului Macedoniei.

14 mai 2012

În locul său, statul macedonean a pus o structură necanonică şi schismatică intitulată „Biserica Ortodoxă Macedoneană”, nerecunoscută de nicio Biserică ortodoxă din lume.

Ierarhul a fost condamnat datorită angajării lui totale de a respecta unitatea Bisericii lui Dumnezeu. Ierarhul persecutat aparţine Patriarhiei Serbiei şi este în comuniune cu ortodoxia de pretutindeni. Este un caz unic în întreaga Europă şi în lumea civilizată, ca autorităţile să acţioneze violent şi cu cruzime împotriva Bisericii Ortodoxe din ţara lor, care există de secole.

Sfântul Sinod al Bisericii Ortodoxe Sârbe, sub care este canonic şi jurisdicţional Arhiepiscopia Ohridei, a condamnat cu cea mai adâncă indignare această violenţă şi persecuţie, condusă de stat, şi este împreună cu credincioşii Ohridei, în rugăciune şi iubire evanghelică, în aceste momente de persecuţie sângeroasă.

Biserica Ortodoxă Sârbă cheamă pe toate Bisericile ortodoxe surori, pe toţi creştinii din întreaga lume, Consiliul Mondial al Bisericilor, Conferinţa Bisericilor Europene şi alte organizaţii creştine, liderii religioşi ai religiilor lumii, guvernele şi autorităţile legale din toate statele lumii, instituţiile internaţionale şi toţi oamenii, să dăruiască sprijin spiritual, legal şi orice alt fel, acestui prizonier al conştiinţei ortodoxiei, Arhiepiscopul Ioan, şi să contribuie la eliberarea sa din închisoare.

Serbian Orthodox Church expressed its protest and condemned the imprisonment of Archbishop Jovan

arh

On its today’s meeting, the Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church expressed its protest against the imprisonment of His Beatitude Archbishop of Ohrid and Metropolitan of Skopje Jovan, and condemned that incomparable violence and persecution conducted under the guise of legal order.

At the same time, the Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church, among the other addresses, sent an appeal for an immediate release of Archbishop Jovan also to the Government of FYROM, having in mind that according to the relevant international reports, the political decisions in our country indisputably have an effect on the court decisions.

Subsequently, we enclose in its fullness the announcement of the Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

After years of persecution, harassment, arrests and imprisonments, His Beatitude the Archbishop of Ohrid and Metropolitan of Skopje kyr Dr. John, pan-Orthodoxly renowned and recognized canonical Prelate of the ancient Ohrid Archbishopric, was sentenced on May 11th, to two and a half years in prison under false charges of alleged fraud and embezzlement, the result of a politically motivated and staged pseudotrial of a Stalinist-type, organized upon the blatant request of the schismatic organization calling itself “The Macedonian Orthodox Church”.

He was sentenced solely because of His unwavering commitment to the unity of the Church of God; because of his communion with the Serbian Patriarchate and thereby with universal Orthodoxy worldwide; and because of his persistent and confessional fight against the schismatic mentality and anti-Ecclesiastical ethnophiletism.

This is a unique case in contemporary Europe – if not in the whole civilized world – of the authorities, by order, to commit an act of cruel violence and an atrocity upon the Orthodox Church and Her lawful senior representatives, most violently breaking both their own laws and international norms and conventions.

The Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church, under whose canonical jurisdiction the autonomous Ohrid Archbishopric is, from its regular assembly in May, protests and condemns this incomparable violence and persecution conducted under the guise of legal order. The Assembly is always with the brothers and sisters from the Ohrid Archbishopric, in prayer and evangelic love, and especially with their Shepherd, who patiently endures suffering for the unity of Christ’s holy Orthodox Church. He is suffering for justice and the authorities are keeping him under a strict-regime prison, despite his serious health condition. At the same time the Holy Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church calls:

  • for all sister Orthodox Churches throughout the ecumene;
  • for all other Christian Churches in the world;
  • for the World Council of Churches, the Conference of European Churches and other Christian organizations;
  • for the government of the FYROM;
  • for the for governments and relevant public authorities of legally regulated states, primarily democratic;
  • for the international institutions; and
  • for the institutions and organizations of human rights and religious freedom;

to provide spiritual, moral, legal and any other possible support to the prisoner of conscience, the Archbishop John, and to contribute to his release from prison as soon as possible.
