Fr. Seraphim Rose on the Pan-Orthodox Council:

 „Measured by the sober standard of unchanging, Patristic Orthodoxy, the preparations for an „eighth Ecumenical Council” (now termed Pan-Orthodox Council) are exposed as un-Orthodox, lacking in seriousness, and profoundly unpastoral and irresponsible. Such a Council is a project rooted not in Orthodox wisdom and in heartfelt concern for the salvation of souls, but rather in the „spirit of the times”; it is intended to please, not God, but the world, and in particular the heterodox world. **Judging from the experience of the Vatican Council and its effect on Roman Catholicism, such a Council, if it is held, will produce profound disorders and anarchy in the Orthodox world**…the proposed „Ecumenical Council,” on the basis of the preparations that have hitherto been made for it, cannot be anything but another „robber council,’ a betrayal of Christ and His Church.”

(Fr. Seraphim Rose in 1976)
