WE ARE PARTNERS OF THE ORTHODOX PATRIARCHATE OF NATIONS. Presentation of the PatriarchateThe Orthodox Patriarchate of Nations does not result from the import and implementation in the recent past with the realities of foreign ancestral customs of our country, and remain so.These realities are embodied in the Orthodox Churches of emigration, which has its full justification for foreigners who want to retain their own customs.Our church, on the contrary is a "local production", a fruit ripened at length during the course of the ages. It received exactly the same influences that, in their rich variety, constituted the soul of our people, and applied them to the divine service. It is par excellence, native. The Church of the Patriarchate of nations is in each country a local church, like all those that have appeared in all nations, first in the Roman Empire and outside its limits . The local Church has flourished in Gaul at the beginning of Christianity, she was able to prevail in his time sound orthodox doctrine: its contribution to the struggle against Arianism was exemplary. She tried to resist repeatedly against the transformation of duty "presidency in charity" recognized the Church of Rome, a papal power became increasingly centralizing and domineering. More recently, the trend it embodied in spite of all obstacles did emerge after several others, Irenaeus P.Louis Winnaert (1880-1937), a Catholic priest who was trying to find the authenticity of the Church of Christ, as expressed in the writings of the Apostle Paul, and was the co-founder of Western Orthodox Church. It refers to the traditional Orthodox Church, to which she aspired, in the person of Eugraph Kovalesky (1905-1970), which arrived in France in 1920 with his parents after the Russian Revolution, felt, meanwhile, the fervent desire to find traces of the Undivided Church, which began through the Brotherhood of St. Photios, based on its initiative in 1925, to restore the Orthodox Church of the Gauls with its liturgy, as it had existed in the first millennium, not as an archaeological reconstruction, what had already completed several liturgists eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but vitally, according its spirit, its rites and its constitutions adapted to contemporary packaging. The ancient local Church was reborn in France, with the blessing of the Russian Orthodox Church in 1936, which, as we declare "accept what the Orthodox Church accepts She rejects this and rejects ".The Orthodox Patriarchate of Nations presence on five continents is an Orthodox Church confesses the same faith as the Greek Orthodox, Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Serbian, etc. Its dogmas, his theology and his faith differ in no way from those Orthodox churches of the East. Orthodoxy means right glorification (or just), presupposing life in the "true faith." It is a "Catholic" Church, as all Orthodox Churches and as the Roman Church. "Catholicity" in effect means "universal fullness of Truth" opposed to any limitation. It is also a Church of France, that is to say a local church according to the principle of unity in diversity which sets the organization of the Orthodox Churches. Thus, according to the same principle, it never used to worship other language than the native language of the people in France, the French. This applies the same principles in each country where it operates. It is applied to restore some local liturgical practices specific to the West but abandoned over the past centuries and unknown of the Eastern Churches, uses consistent with the integrity of the Orthodox faith and the tradition of the undivided Church of the first millennium, and help the faithful to take more intimately aware of the liturgical mysteries. It does not represent, as we have said, an archaeological return to a state of the existing Church to Life and VII centuries in Gaul, but the visible resurgence of an underground stream that has never ceased to manifest through diverse personalities and whose source is in the heritage of the undivided Church.
