Does this mean that Aba Paulos is overriding the Synod? May be this could be the beginning of his removal. Unlike what most Ethiopians think the synod has the power to depose a patriarch. There are many precedence of such act by a synod in the Orthodox Church. One of the recent removal of the Patriarch was in 2005 in Jerusalem.
/b
The Patriarchate was recently the venue for a significant controversy. Patriarch Irenaios, elected in 2001, was deposed, on decisions of the Holy Synod of Jerusalem, in the aftermath of a scandal involving the sale of church land in East Jerusalem to Israeli developers; the move enraged many Orthodox Palestinians, since the land was in an area that most Palestinians hope will someday become part of a Palestinian state. On May 24, 2005 a special Pan-Orthodox Synod was convened in Constantinople (Istanbul) to review the decisions of the Holy Synod of Jerusalem. The Pan-Orthodox Synod under the presidency of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, voted overwhelmingly to confirm the decision of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulcher and to strike Irenaios' name from the diptychs, and on May 30, Jerusalem's Holy Synod chose Metropolitan Cornelius of Petra to serve as locum tenens pending the election of a replacement for Irenaios. On August 22, 2005, the Holy Synod of the Church of Jerusalem unanimously elected Theophilus, the former Archbishop of Tabor, as the 141st Patriarch of Jerusalem. /b

the illegal patriarch is moving at the light speed to damage our church. He needs to be disposed.

THE ACT OF Aba Paulos PATRIARCH OF ETHIOPIA:

Chapter One
" As a Patriarch I have seen The Ark of the Covenant with my own eyes and only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now".

Chapter two
I have decided to expose The Ark to the World. I will announce this from a Hotel in Rome
(who is to tell me what to do or what not to do? The Synod? What Synod. I am the Synod. Forget those seven bishops. I have asked Melese to put them in prison for charge with conspiracy to overthrow me.

According to the Smithsonian magazine reporter Aba Paulos said he has not seen the Ark of the Covenant which is in Axum. He stressed that no one except the guardian monk, no bishop not even the patriarch, is allowed to see it. . "Can you believe that even though I'm head of the Ethiopian church, I'm still forbidden from seeing it?" Aba Paulos told the reporter. That was in 2007.

Now visiting Italy without the consent of the synod or overriding the synod which is saying he has seen the Ark
Before leaving Addis Ababa for Akum, I went to the offices of His Holiness Abuna Paulos, patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which has some 40 million adherents worldwide, to ask about Ethiopia's claim to have the ark of the covenant. Paulos holds a PhD in theology from Princeton University, and before he was installed as patriarch, in 1992, he was a parish priest in Manhattan. Gripping a golden staff, wearing a golden icon depicting the Madonna cradling an infant Jesus, and seated on what looked like a golden throne, he oozed power and patronage.
"We've had 1,000 years of Judaism, followed by 2,000 years of Christianity, and that's why our religion is rooted in the Old Testament," he told me. "We follow the same dietary laws as Judaism, as set out in Leviticus," meaning that his followers keep kosher, even though they are Christians. "Parents circumcise their baby boys as a religious duty, we often give Old Testament names to our boys and many villagers in the countryside still hold Saturday sacred as the Sabbath."
Is this tradition linked to the church's claim to hold the ark, which Ethiopians call Tabota Seyen, or the Ark of Zion? "It's no claim, it's the truth," Paulos answered. "Queen Sheba visited King Solomon in Jerusalem three thousand years ago, and the son she bore him, Menelik, at age 20 visited Jerusalem, from where he brought the Ark of the Covenant back to Aksum. It's been in Ethiopia ever since."
I asked if the ark in Ethiopia resembles the one described in the Bible: almost four feet long, just over two feet high and wide, surmounted by two winged cherubs facing each other across its heavy lid, forming the "mercy seat," or footstool for the throne of God. Paulos shrugged. "Can you believe that even though I'm head of the Ethiopian church, I'm still forbidden from seeing it?" he said. "The guardian of the ark is the only person on earth who has that peerless honor."

Keepers of the Lost Ark? Christians in Ethiopia have long claimed to have the ark of the Covenant. Our reporter investigated By Paul Raffaele. Smithsonian magazine, December 2007
http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-places/ark-covenant-200712.html
Now visiting Italy without the consent of the synod or overriding the synod or without informing and getting the consent of the synod before going to Italy not informing is saying that he has seen the Ark of the Covenant. If he has seen it did he lie to the Smithsonian magazine in 2007?

At the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome, together with the Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Selassie, and Duke Amedeo D'Aosta, .he is not only claiming to have seen it he is going to announce tomorrow he will let the whole world see it.

Two years ago he himself was not allowed to see it now that he has seen it he is going to show it to the world


PATRIARCH OF ETHIOPIA: THE TIMES HAVE MATURED TO TELL THE TRUTH, ARK OF COVENANT WILL BE SHOWN TO PUBLIC

Date: Saturday, 20-Jun-2009 03:01:25

This was announced on June 17, 2009, during the exclusive video interview to ADNKRONOS, available at the site Ign, internet front of Adnkronos (www.adnkronos.com), by the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia, Abuna Pauolos, who was yesterday received by Pope Benedict XVI for the first time.
Patriarch will make official world announcement next Friday at 14:00 hours, form Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome, together with the Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Selassie, and Duke Amedeo D'Aosta.

Now the ball is in the court of the Synod. We are waiting to hear from the Synod and the newly selected seven bishops who are now in charge of the church’s affair.
