What could be more necessary?
Some misguided, ambitious or just disloyal individuals groups and communities maintain the Ecumenical See is not necessary. What could be more necessary? The establishment of autocephalous churches or patriarchates are only pursued rightly, justly and with authority in love through obedience and respect; not by disparaging or dismissively marginalizing the martyric throne. All else is counterfeit and worthless leading to mortification an amputation from the body. Any attempts to discredit canon 28 or imply a receding or diminishing of any kind by the Ecumenical Throne is simply demonic. All those who say they want to stay out of the "politics" of the church; who want to stay somehow "above the fray" are as useless as tits on a bull. They are not willing to take a stand and only obstruct the real issues confronting the churches which are of vital importance.
