Primate of the Antiochian Syriac Orthodox Church suspended
temporarily the auxiliary bishop Mor Gregorios Mathews from
all functions of an auxiliary bishop. The reason for that
is among many others the published articles by him in Thaddavus
which created troubles and problems and which are out of truth.
He is suspended from all functions until the Holy Synod of
the Antiochian Syriac Orthodox Church will take place. Until
that he is only allowed to celebrate the Holy Liturgy. Mor
Gregorios got from the Primate time to step back from his
articles, to apologize for them and to clarify all the other
reasons of his suspension. The Primate made very clear that
every clergy member of the Antiochian Syriac Orthodox Church
who doesn't serve the aim of the Church and serves it in purity
and devotion will be judged.Post
