A Message from His Holiness Abune Merkorios, Patriarch

The Holy Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church-in-Exile

“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for
this is the Law and the Prophets” Matthew 7:12.

The Head Office of the Patriarchate of the Legitimate Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC) in North America deeply laments and pleads to the Almighty God that He give His blessings and mercy to our people in Ethiopia, who are undergoing through a tremendous hardship, suffering, and despair, stemming from both political tyranny and economic injustice, and more importantly, from ethnically-motivated displacement of selected population groups from their homes and communities around the country. Even the most sacred of our religious sites, such as venerated statues and monasteries, have not been immune from government intrusion. It is against this backdrop, unfortunately, that we were observing The Great Lent (Abye Tsome) of fasting and praying— in the great tradition of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church— as a remembrance of the 40 days and nights of fasting of our Lord Christ after His baptism. Surely, our usual upbeat celebration of this epic Orthodox Tewahedo tradition has been tempered this year by the grim reality of the many misfortunes afflicting our people back in Ethiopia.  Read full story in PDFmerkoriwos

    • Ante balaye, balaye yesadegeh, you called the Patriarch of EOTC “Mr.” God will punish for that, you Agame.

      • He has lost his respected salutation name the minute he resigned from papacy and tried to blame others for his own selfish benefit! We, Ethiopians have the most dedicated patriarchs in our history who died for the truth! Mr Markorios, in the contrary, fled where there is money!!! It’s amazing how people like him use this church for their own benefits. Mr Markorios, I respect you because you are my elder other than that it’s very hard to see you as a true pope! Besides woyane, you are individually responsible for the division of our blessed orthodox tewahido church!

  1. Abuna Merkorios (Aka the fanatic Derg high level blue uniform wearing cadre)served as
    Archbishop of Gondar until he
    became Patriarch of Ethiopia in
    1988.
    Abune Merkorios’ tenure of Archbishop of Gondar included the period known as the “Red Terror” in Ethiopia, and which was carried out with particular brutality in the town and province of Gondar under the governorship of Melaku Teferra, a particularly notorious member of the Derg.

    Abuna Merkorios (Aka the fanatic Derg high level blue uniform wearing cadre) kept silent during the horrors of the “Red Terror” in Gondar & have close relationship with Governor Melaku.

    In a sign of the favor of the Derg regime, in 1987 Abune
    Merkorios (Aka the fanatic Derg high level blue uniform wearing cadre) was appointed as
    one of a very small and select
    group of clergy to serve as a
    member of the Shengo, the
    national parliament set up by
    the Derg when it proclaimed
    the People’s Democratic Republic of Ethiopia
    that year. He remained a
    member of the parliament until his enthronement as Patriarch.

    • Mr so called AKA,
      you said Abune Merrkorios kept silent when….,what about the pervious and the current patriarch? when was the last time they speak up? Why they kept silent when waldeba was burned? why they keep silent when millions are dying of hunger? why they keep silent when Bible was burned? why they keep silent when “woyana” placed its own kadre as a priest in all Ethiopian church? why they keep silent when abuna Paulos’s statue was erected?(still up and looking ugly) why they kept silent when thousands went “kality’ for something that they didn’t do? you are an IDIOT!!!
      The pervious and current patriarch are supporting “woyane” (the killer) Abuna Merkorious at least didn’t support “Derg”. Atleast they were NOT a part of it. Do your home work before you open your big mouth. Shame on you! “maferia”
