The above warning was given to me when I first met Orthodoxy in 1986. Today [2009] it is even more perilous, even more difficult to find the Royal Path. For one thing there is a far greater abundance of misinformation. And many materials are missing, and other materials are being rapidly rewritten. For another thing there are fewer than ever guides remaining on the Royal Path, especially who speak English. Hopefully this website will be a place where Newcomers to the Faith can keep at least one foot on solid ground, while they are "exploring."

Website Review
a collection of various comments


This is a RocorMP website VERY supportive of the RocorMP union and therefore can not be trusted.  There are articles with MP propaganda and essays that not just support, but also promote, the MP partyline and even some intellectual world Orthodox ideas [read: Parisian, renovationist].

These things coming from a former Rocor clergyman who had gained the trust and admiration of the Rocor flock are far more dangerous than if they were coming from a known renovationist in world Orthodoxy.  In promoting the "new Rocor" [which is the not so hidden agenda of the RocorMP union] he has become a traitor to the old Rocor.

Fr. Andrew Phillips was ordained in 1985.  He is very intelligent, educated, and speaks English, French, German, and can also do Services in Greek and Slavonic.  There are no worthwhile articles on his website that can not be accessed through a safer source.  Avoid this website, because while it might look impressive at first, it is laced with poisons.


Very Unsafe.  ROCOR-MP.  Super pro-union.  Suspected of being with the KGB by some, or maybe under hypnosis.

Fr. Andrew Phillips, a.k.a. the 'Colchester Cuckoo', is what is called a "singer."  He sings the praises of the ROCOR-MP union.  And he does this with a passion - like an obsession - as if under some kind of hypnosis.  "He's intelligent, yes, but does he know right from wrong?"  He is a propaganda spewer and echos the party-line of the neo-Soviet MP.  –  (Quote from one of our priests, said in private.)

Somehow this does not surprise me...


One of the SIR bishops sent this link to +AC and here is (part of) his reply:


Your Grace: Evlogeite. Thank you for the link. Forgive me, but this man must be somewhat disturbed. While I do not have much faith in psychology (after all, it drove me into monasticism, to some extent), it does have its points of validity. From a purely psychological standpoint, and as a former shrink, let me say that this man's reasoning is quite convoluted:
