‹‹ውጭ አገር ካሉት ወንድሞቻችን ጋራ እርቀ ሰላም ማድረጉ አሁንም ይቀጥላል›› ብፁዕ ወቅዱስ አቡነ ማትያስ


(REPORTER):- የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ስድስተኛው ፓትርያርክ ሆነው ባለፈው ሐሙስ የተመረጡት ብፁዕ ወቅዱስ አቡነ ማትያስ በውጭ አገር ካሉት ጳጳሳት ጋራ እርቀ ሰላም ማድረጉ አሁንም ይቀጥላል አሉ፡፡
የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ምእመናንን ለማገልገል፣ ለማስተማር፣ ፍቅርና አንድነትን ለማጠናከርም ተግተው እንደሚቀጥሉበት አስታውቀዋል፡፡ 

በጠቅላይ ቤት ክህነት አዳራሽ የካቲት 21 ቀን 2005 ዓ.ም. በተደረገው የስድስተኛው ፓትርያርክ ምርጫ ከፍተኛውን 500 ድምፅ በማግኘት የተመረጡት ብፁዕ ወቅዱስ አቡነ ማትያስ፣ ከምርጫው ፍፃሜ በኋላ በተለይ ለሪፖርተር በሰጡት ቃለ ምልልስ አሜሪካ ከሚገኙትና ከአራተኛው ፓትርያርክ ጋር ሆነው ከተለዩት ጳጳሳት ጋር ንግግሩ እንደሚቀጥል ተናግረዋል፡፡ 

‹‹ከአሁን ቀደም እርቁ ተሞክሯል፡፡ ውጭ አገር ካሉት ወንድሞቻችን ጋራ እርቀ ሰላም ለማድረግ በተደጋጋሚ ተሞክሯል፡፡ አሁንም ቢሆን ቅዱስ ሲኖዶስ በወሰነው መሠረት ይቀጥላል፤›› ብለዋል፡፡ 

የቤተ ክርስቲያኒቱ ዓለም አቀፍ ግንኙነትም ብፁዕ ወቅዱስ አቡነ ጳውሎስ በጀመሩት መንገድ እንደሚቀጥሉ እምነታቸውና ተስፋቸው መሆኑን የገለጹት አቡነ ማትያስ፣ ‹‹በኢየሩሳሌም የኢትዮጵያ ይዞታ በሆነው ዴር ሡልጣን ገዳም ከግብፅ ኮፕቲክ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ጋር ያለውንና ከ1770 ዓ.ም. ጀምሮ ሥር የሰደደውን ችግር ለመፍታት፣ ከግብፅ ሲኖዶስ ጋር ተደርጎ የማያውቀውን ድርድር ከእነርሱ ጋር በመነጋገር መፍትሔ ለማምጣት እንጠይቃለን፤›› ብለዋል፡፡

guys I think, its high time to stop the chitchatting and start supporting this monk having a good cv, far better than abune paulos.

Please be a positive force...and please stop personal attacks. Neither the church nor its adherents are advantaged from any hateful gossiping.
So sick of reading anything bad about a person not inline with ur extreme position.

This father may not have bad idea for the church , may even have personal willingness to do good. But the issue is, who is really the 'pope', is it not the goverment!!!

So I see him as a power less individual doing/acting as a representative work for the clearly visible muscular body(Gov't), not any more hidden by the way. Some times I see him as Presedent Girma W/G.

May God help our beloved church to get its own freedom given from him.

ከወያኔ ቤት ደግ ሰው ይገኛል ብሎ መጠበቅ ከዝምብ ማር እደመጠበቅ ነው ! አባ ማትያስ ወያኔ ገና በጫካ ሳለ ጀምረው ነው አባልነታቸው። አዲስ አበባን እንደተቆጣጠረ ግን በግልጽ የድጋፍ መግለጫ ሠጥተው ነው የተቀላቀሉት። አልፎ አልፎ ከአባ ጳውሎስ ጋር በግል ሥልጣን የተነሳ ያለመግባባት እንዳላቸው የሚያሳዩ ምልክቶች ቢከሰቱም መሠረታዊ በሆነው የጋራ መርሆአቸው፥ ማለት በትግሬወች የበላይነት ፍልስፍና ምንም ልዩነት አልነበራቸውም። አዎ ውጫዊ ገጽታቸው በጣም የሚማርክ ነው ። ግን የውስጥ ይዘታቸው ከወገኖቻቸው የተለየ አይደለም። yes appearance, most of the time, is misleading because it doesn't give you the true character of the person. Some people may be susceptible to an appearance and fail by that. Anyhow we will see more his true character sooner rather than later .

Agame Awraja boy above, stop showing your inferiority complex here. Abune Paulos was gifted with intellect and charisma though neither served him well. Abune Matias has neither qualities though he may end up being a good leader. Time will tell.

Dear Deje Selam,

You need to have commenting guidelines. Nowadays, there are many nonconstructive comments on your blog.

I agree people have the right to express their opinions. However, the should be accountable for their action specially when they write insults, and abusive words for our father. For example a comment says" የእርስዎን ደግሞ ድርባባ ሃውልት ቢያሳዩን ይመረጣል።" What is this?

Please, Please Dejeselam, read other forms how they manage their blogs specially if you keep using the church name? By the way I don't think all the posters are believers.

I agree to,

"What is the meaning of "His Holiness"? Is it only a ceremonial name or does is it also have a spiritual reverence?

It sickens me when we endorse the farce that came out of the TPLF by associating the tile of "His Holiness" to a person assigned through an unholy process.

Do we not know the dirty process of maneuvering and intimidation this so called election transpired?

I am afraid that we may be persuaded to follow suit if the powerful government were to ask us to call the devil "his holiness".

We should not and must not conform to the evil deeds of the government no matter how powerful it may seem. As such, we don't need to call Aba Matias "his holiness" as the government wants us to unless we believe in the whole drama that unfolded.

We should always stand only for the truth as todays powerful will wither away. We must seek the truth and stand for it. We must not be passive conformists."

As for me I do not recognize any 'patriarch' irrespective of any ethnic origin while the 4th Patriarch, Abune Merkorios exists.

Most of the comments I see are unChristian, UnEthiopian & Unorthodox!
Abune Mathais is such a gracoius father our country & Tewahido produced. He is an elderly father as well. If any of you are Christians (specially tewahidoawian), you would know the 10 commandments! You have no christian values and as such no Christians at all. What happened to Ethiopians? What kind of a divil has possessed us all? I have heard our dear His Holiness Abune Merkorios being insulted, I have also heard & witnessed His Holiness Abune Paulos being accused of wrong doings no one is able to pin point.... and now to see our dear father His Holiness Abune Mathias being insulted by good for nothings and humberger filled western brainwashed idiots makes me feel sick to my stomach. If you don't know the tewahido church, then do not meddle in her business... these gracoius fathers have given their lives to the church & Christ ...you haven't! you and your types are in no position to redicule our fathers hence our church! and your types are the ones who widen the divide which keeps injuring our mother church....
DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND Amharic???
His Holiness Abune Mathias has just put the reconcilliation process as one of his priorities & refering to our fathes abroad as "our brothers"
Most of you need St. Paul's teachings like those European Pegans who turned out to be Catholics & Anglicans in the end!
These Europeans were pegans in the early days... what is wrong wit us Ethiopian after 2000 years of teachings???? Haven't we finished our evolutionary process? or is there something drastically wrong with out thought process?
C'mon folks! Lets wake up! If we can't understand Christ, our devine father, at least let's try to follow St. Paul who is a brigt human being who has been chosen to spoon feed us ways of Christan life!
Don't be thick heads.... these are our fathers and to to it all off, our elderly fathers!
Would one be happy if one's father gets insulted? I wouldn't!!!
Please, DO NOT insult my fathers as you would be insulting my Church, My country & hence insulting me.

To the last anonymous commenter,

You said, Abune Matias is a gracious father. I can agree that he is a gracious bishop. But he is an illegal patriarch as he is being assigned in an illegal election according to the cannon law of the Orthodox Church. Yes, may be gracious bishop BUT an illegal patriarch whom we don't accept.



You ask what has happened to Ethiopians? What kind of devil has possessed us?

The devil that has been pondering around our beloved Orthodox Church is racism spearheaded by none other than the TPLF. I call it devil because of the devilish act it has perpetrated in our church for the past 20 years.

If you indeed are a true Orthodox Christian, you would have cared for its cannon law. You should have stand when the age old cannon law is discarded and the TPLF assigned its ethnic bishop as head of the church while forcing out His Holiness Abune Merkorios.

So, why do you blame the Orthodox Christians who understand the cannon law of their church and oppose the sham election of illegal patriarchs? What kind of devil has possessed you to not see the glaring lawlessness and racism that is being perpetrated in our Church?

May the Lord shine his light so that you can understand what concerned Orhtodox Christians are talking about.

Hailu,
I don't think you got the point...look at of our patriachal history and tell all our members that the cannon law has been respected? If you're talking about the cannon law and legality of our Patriarchs, then only His holiness Abune Baselois would come in mind and that is beause he was the first Ethiopian & ofcourse pushed aside in the end! The second one would be Abune Merkorios because,Abune Teklehaimanot passed away while the same government is still in power in time for the election!
I'm talking about reconcilliation as obvoiusly, lawlesness and anarchy seems to be widespread and you seem to blind fold yourself & deny this fact. And as I see from your comment, you're blinded by micronationalism which you need to go beyond hence untie yourself form the tight grip the devil has on you!
People talk about forgiveness but, you are still pounding in the dark!
See and live through the light of Christ & leave our holy fathers alone! You and the likes of you create confusion & darkness in the name of law and sabotage these Holy fathers ... let them unite become one.. I bet you don't want that as you are the benefiaciary of division! Divided, we fall and it is the devils work!
LIKE WISE, my brother May the Lord shine his light so that you can understand what concerned Orhtodox Christians are talking about RECONCILLIATION!!!

To the above 'sim aytere' (anonymous),

You did not read my comment in earnest or you are willingly blindfolding youself not understand what I am said in my comment above.


Why do you have to try to confuse people in futility?
Were you in Ethiopia or planet earth when the reconciliation process was abruptly halted by TPLF master heads, like Abay Tshehaye?

Have you heard what happened to the delegation send by the Peace and Reconciliation Committee to Ethiopia?

Have you heard as to what the EOTC Peace & Reconciliation Committee declared as to how the reconciliation effort was aborted primarily by the TPLF infested synod in Ethiopia?

So, do not try to confuse about the term reconciliation, the practical meaning of which you or your masters don't have any clue.

You are full of obscenities. You don't have any hesitation when you curse people. Where did you learn this? This kind of behavior can only come from TPLF cadres.

My dear brother,
I'm in the same shoe as you are, Hailu...but, I'm one who says enough is enough! how long is it going to go on for? Do you think we should be changing the head of our church each time there is a government change? I'm always baffled as to why we need to involve the government in our church? How come our Menekosat can't stand firm on government interferanes? I'm one who says let's help them stand on their feet and let no government, be it rebels, militaries or monarchies interfere in our heavenly home...Let's look at our heavenly brothers (the Copts) and learn from them.
By the way,Hailu, you're very artiulate...I like that very much & am glad to find someone like you in the same belief as I am in. I'm glad to be in the same church as you're.

May the Lord our God help us and our Tewahido. Amen.

Atually, Ethiopia is part of planet earth just in case you need a geography lesson :)
Don't cry foul when a different opinion appears... you seem to be very opinionated... I think you should open up a little and hear what others are haveto say & trying to convey rather than labeling them with unholy & totally unregligious organization.
I just want peace to all christians but specially to our church and its followers. May the Lord grant us everlasting peace & unity.Amen.

The whole structure is rotten.
As an Orthodox, I don't have to choose between this new corrupt structure sanctioned and instituted by TPLF and the old one, which is just as corrupt even though to a lesser extent.
We the followers are the first ones that should take responsibility for the state we are in. For so many years we looked the other way when we saw SO MANY disgusting and blatant abuses under the guise of religion. Money, power, greed and corruption has plagued this hierarchy. There is simply no room for God in it.
So, to this new man Mathias, I say no thank you. I only see Satan in his action to participate in this sham.
All others, mark my words. This is only the beginning. The structure is crumbling down. Time to turn to God instead of looking for guidance from these...politicians.

Grangn Mohamed was not succesful to destroy our structure! Benito Duce was not succesful to destroy our structure! and you pitiful, pethetic dirt bag call His Holiness "this new man Mathias"? Shame on you... I actually feel sorry for you & the likes of you as you're burning in eternal fire in hell on earth while you're alive.... The likes of you have also accused His Holiness Abune Merkorios of pulling a gun out mistaken for a cross! you definitely saw a gun because the CROSS is a GUN for the devil! The CROSS burns the devil! whenever you see the cross you'd mistake it for a gun because you're the son of the devil!.. And a Bishop without a CROSS (devil's gun) would not be a Bishop... because he is a Bishop, he did pull his cross to bless his flock and guard them through the blessing of our Lord Jesus Christ! but for you it was a gun as you're a devil.
May the blessing of our Lord Jesus Christ be upon us, the beleivers,all and bless our Tewahido, Our Holy fathers and our Christian country... May the Blessing of our mother, the virgin Mary be upon us all! Amen.
