Deposed Patriarch of Jerusalem

May 25 2005

Patriarch Irenaeus of Jerusalem deposed in connection with the scandal with the machinations around his property. Such a decision came to the Cathedral of local Orthodox churches , which takes place in Istanbul. Council was convened Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople to resolve the crisis related to the Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

Henceforth, the name of Irenaeus is deleted from the list of the Primates of the Orthodox churches. Instead, he was appointed Locum Tenens, which will take the throne of the patriarch until the election of a new head of the church.

Irenaeus himself did not recognize as lawful the Synod's decision and refused to voluntarily resign, reports RIA Novosti.

However, no dismantling of internal church can not shake the true faith and her amazing testimony. Holy Fire: a miracle that everyone can see .
