Skopje, 19 November 2017 (MIA) - The Holy Synod of the Macedonian Orthodox Church-Ohrid Archbishopric (MOC-OA) has asked in a letter the Bulgarian Orthodox Church (BOC) to be its mother church if it recognizes the MOC-OA autocephaly, MIA reports.
The letter was sent after MOC-OA's Synod session on November 9.
"The Macedonian Orthodox Church-Ohrid Archbishopric will recognize the Bulgarian Orthodox Church-Bulgarian Patriarchy as its Mother Church, which on its part recognizes and promotes MOC-OA's autocephaly before the Ecumenical Patriarchate and other churches", reads the letter.
The MOC-OA Synod urges the BOC to establish a "Eucharistic unity with the restored Ohrid Archbishopric in the image of the Macedonian Orthodox Church".
It adds that a possible church signing would create unity between the two episcopates, representing the foundation for "Eucharistic unity with episcopates of other Orthodox churches".
MOC-OA hopes that the BOC Holy Synod would accept their proposals "for the well-being of all churches". ik/11:54
