UNITED DIOCESE?

By Hratch Tchilingirian

In an interview with AIM (April-May 1998), when speaking about the protracted administrative schism in the Armenian Church, Catholicos Aram I made it very clear that it is ultimately up to the people to decide the question of “church unity.” When asked about the role of the hierarchy and who is going to take the first step, His Holiness said: “Antelias came here not to divide the people, but to serve the people. If the people whom we are serving tell us thank you very much for what you did, the next day Antelias will go back to Antelias.”

All of this came with many unexpected and often undesired side effects.

Western Journalists on Armenia's Elections

By Hratch Tchilingirian
