Letter to the Editor: Methodios of Boston

February 17, 2021

To the Editor:

The recent news of Metropolitan Methodios of Boston endorsing a lawsuit on behalf of an employee (in this case a former professor) against our Holy Cross Seminary reveals an imprudent stance. The School, which had been financially mismanaged for decades by the prior Archdiocesan Administration, needs to be strengthened, not weakened. As much as it was difficult for the School to let certain faculty go, the pressing “financial exigency,” inherited from the past, made it the only responsible choice.

Every alumni of the School should be deeply concerned. When the School has struggled for so long to keep afloat, do we really need personal agendas to overshadow the longterm health of the most vital  Institution of our Church in America?  Let’s work for the future, and leave the past in the past.

Father Alexander Karloutsos

Protopresbyter of the Ecumenical Patriarchate

To the Editor: The article of Archdeacon John Chryssavgis defending Archbishop Elpidophoros officiating in the baptism of the children of a gay couple is a strange brew.
