Strong Words on Vassula Ryden by Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople (Eastern Orthodox)

Vassula Ryden has been a controversial figure in Catholic circles and in the Orthodox Church, as well. It seems the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople offered strong words in an announcement. We have a translation of the original Greek decree from Orthodox Christian blogger John Sanidopoulos (and a veil-tip to Rorate-Caeli and Luke Coppen of the UK Catholic Herald).  It reads, in part (link added for clarity):

In this spirit, and for the beneficial protection of our pious Orthodox plenitude from dangerous spiritual confusion, who do not know well matters underlying the risk of delusion, rejects from the Mother Church Vasiliki Paraskevis Pentaki – Ryden, widely known as “Vassula”, and her organization founded under the title “True Life In God” which rashly and frivolously proposes teachings based on the supposed “direct dialogue between her and the Founder of the Church Jesus Christ our Lord”, and those conquered by her and the supporters of “True Life In God”, which deviate arbitrarily from the God-given teaching of the Church, but also scandalize the Orthodox phronema of pious believers.

Hence, we call upon the proponents of these unacceptable innovations and the supporters who maintain them, who henceforth are not admitted to ecclesiastical communion, not only to not be involved in the pastoral work of the local Holy Metropolis, but also to not preach their novel teachings, to prevent the appropriate sanctions under the Holy Canons.

We express, lastly, the profound sorrow of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of the acts of nine – fortunately few – clergy of the Orthodox Church to be found at talks of the said “Vassula” and give to her a “certificate of Orthodoxy.”

At the Patriarchate, the 16th of March 2011

Of the Chief Secretariat of the Holy and Sacred Synod

Translated by John Sanidopoulos

Not an ounce of ambiguity – the kind that results in “loop-hole justifications” to persist.

Richard Chonak opines, after extracting something interesting from the Holy See’s 1995 notification:

So it’s good to see that Mrs. Ryden has fostered Christian unity: she has brought the Holy See and the Patriarch of Constantinople together to condemn her heresies!

Indeed!

Believe in her messages? I don’t even believe in her hair color! -RC

On her web site she quotes a gentleman who says that she is “an Orthodox among Orthodox.” God knows that I am the chief among sinners, and the last to cast judgement on anyone, but I do believe that this woman is either lying, schizophrenic or receiving messages from the Devil. I took the time to read some of her “messages”, and the left a feeling of unease in my soul and mind. Beware those who would lead us astray. One of the “messages” purports that Jesus Himself said that Catholics, Orthodox and even Protestants are all the same. This lady needs prayer more than anything. Let us pray for her! –Joshua
