I understand that the current the Coptic Church acknowledges Eritrean Patriarch. I found a message written by H.H. Abune Antonios that he refused any patriarch to be ordained because his removal by the synod was illegal by the Church canon. I would like you to explain to me this please. I am in need of this information because I always feel that if the current patriarch and the bishops ordain me, I am rejecting H.H. Abune Antonios' condemnation in the name of the Holy Trinity. I am also aware of that H.G. Bishop Makarios of North America recognizes H.H. Abune Antonios as the Canonical Patriarch. This is the message of H.H. Abune Antonios translated in English:
What is the Coptic Orthodox Church's view on the governmental installed Patriarch of Eritrea and the Holy Synod. Are the Churches consecrated by him and any member of the clergy ordained by him accepted? Is confessing to a priest ordained by him or receiving communion from his hand okay?
