He is the head of the Russian Orthodox Church. They are not in communion with Rome. If you don't believe me, accuse a Russian Orthodox friend of being a Roman Catholic. If you are lucky, he or she will be annoyed but still be your friend. If you are unlucky, they will rip your living, twitching tongue out of your head and stomp on it. (just joking, they will simply stop being your friend.) As regards the watch, it was a gift from a business person who had profound respect for the Patriach. He was not spending the money of the poor on luxury watches. I doubt the Patrirach knows what its worth, or at least did not until this furor. The Russian Orthodox Church spends millions of Rubles on poor relief every year, particularly feeding the hungry. First, this bishop is NOT Roman Catholic.

If this is all some people have to worry about, then they really need to open their eyes to a much harsher world. Geesh. Oh, for goodness sake, who cares?

Who is he trying to hide his true identify from?? Proof that he doesn’t apply what the bible says 1) materialism is wrong 2) the eyes of god are roving about the earth. So he’s not hiding from the true meaning behind him being a “Orthodox” what a joke these “Churches” are. I can’t wait till the day that Babylon the Great is exposed!!!!!!! and I hope Im alive to see it. This just sickens me. Who is he trying to hide his true identify from??

As to poverty, I don;t recall Christ having a particular problem with tax collectors? Mary Magdellan by historical accounts was quite wealthy and supported his ministry. Christ attended a wedding where he brought the finest wine but novel means. I don't see where American evangelical mega churches have taken any great vows of poverty when they arrive in their Limos to church, not do I hold that against them. Your convictions about poverty are fine for you, but should not be applied to others unless they have taken a vow of poverty, like a buddist monk or a member of many christian orders.
