This is a series of three essays first published in French, Russian, and Bulgarian. The first essay is a response to the Joint Communiqué signed in 1992 by the so-called “official” Orthodox Churches. The second essay is a critical analysis of the “Pan-Orthodox Congress” of 1923, which introduced the divisive innovation of the New Calendar into the Orthodox Church. And the third essay presents the Church Calendar as an indispensable element of Holy Tradition.
