    Archbishop of Australia: No war is justified for the Orthodox Church

    Archbishop Makarios of Australia was in the studio of the “Voice of Greece” and spoke about the relationship of the Orthodox Church with the Greek Diaspora, the initiatives to strengthen the ties of the Greek Orthodox, and what the role of the Church should be today.

    That’s according to Orthodox Times.

    “For the Orthodox Church, no war is justified. We cannot today have made a new theological finding of the war in Ukraine and speak of a holy war. They want to justify what is being done by the political leadership. That is the aim. They have always had this thought of being the third Rome, although I say it for our listeners to hear, there was no first Rome and no second Rome to go to the third Rome.
