Church and State in the Modern Age: A Documentary History

against such undertakings of zealots for the faith, with the intention of stifling their enthusiasm. . . .

If the forces of Ecumenical Orthodoxy, and its free voice, do not come to the aid of the captive Russian Church, then only divine intervention will be able to save us. . . .

This year is the 60th anniversary of the Patriarchate of the Russian Church. Sixty years ago, at the All-Russian Council (Sobor), the synodal form of church administration, dependent on the authority of the State was overthrown. The Council decided that henceforward the Russian Church was "independent of the State and, guided by its dogmatic and canonical principles, would in church legislative, administrative and judicial affairs enjoy the rights of self-determination and selfgovernment. ". . .

Your Holiness! It is essential that concerted efforts should be made by the fraternal Orthodox Churches to study the tenets of Orthodoxy in the context of the contemporary world, which is secularized or openly hostile to the Church. It is essential to clarify the fundamental ecclesiological principles by which the Church must be guided in its mutual relations with State and society. . . .

The sickness of the Russian Church is a serious one. But we believe that the Lord, he who raised Lazarus after four days, will not abandon us in his mercy. Prostrating ourselves before you . . . we beg for your especial prayers, and those of all Orthodox Christians, for the revival of the Russian Church to the glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
