Subject: Limited Sharing: Some Startling Information About the Manton, California OCA Monastery-founded by Met. Jonah-Paffhausen-
WHAT IS GOING ON!? ..this OCA Manton Monastery was spared from these recent terrible fires, but now, this!
Is this?... modernist/ecumenist/'relevant', new-age? "Orthodox Monasticism" via the OCA-Manton mode??? It certainly seems so. What a scandal! Though, I cannot believe that everyone in the OCA, which has many basically-conservatively-oriented Orthodox believers, either knows of this Manton travesty, nor practices themselves such unOrthodox and utterly bizarre and/or immoral, 'monastic' norms, as seems to be in current use, in the Manton, California, monastery founded by (former-OCA Metropolitan) Jonah. And too, it is named after St. John Maximovitch!
