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?
The Coptic Church recognizes this newly installed patriarch by the government as the acting patriarch. All the ordinations of clergy and even bishops are acknowledged because he does not ordain bishops by himself alone but also with the whole Holy Synod.
