ASYLUM GIVEN TO FALSE ELDER FROM AN ASYLUM
REGURGITATED MILAN SYNOD GAVE ASYLUM TO FALSE ELDER FROM AN ASYLUM
JOSEPH SUAIDEN: "And that’s the story of how Minas became an obsessive ROCOR refugee, a cranky Yankee, a guy who personally slagged me with rumors and second hand information, and finally attacked a saintly elder with false accusations placed by an OCA bishop"
The so called "Saintly Elder" is one Theodore Irtel who spent his final years as a resident of the regurgitated Milan Synod's Abbey of the Holy Name. I first encountered the mention of this man when I had made a visit to the fake weeping icon, pedophile monk Christ of the Hills "Monastery" in Blanco, Texas in 1997. The so called monks there regarded him as some living saint and had made a icon of him from this photo depicting him with a shinning heavenly light engulfing his face .
Isn't it weird how birds of a feather flock together ?
They had this "icon" prominently displayed there, also copies they were peddling in their gift store. Here are some web links about him and them:
THE ORIGINAL ABBEY OF THE HOLY NAME WEBSITE, WITH THE REFERENCE TO THEODORE IRTELL LIVING THERE THE LAST 7 YRS. OF HIS LIFE HAS BEEN REMOVED. I THINK THEY MAY HAVE THOUGHT BETTER OF KEEPING IT UP. HOWEVER YOU MAY STILL ACCESS THE PAGE HERE:
ONE OF THEIR "MONKS" SYMEON BAR YOHANAN aka EX "HIEROMONK" SIMON SALOS SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN KICKED OUT OR LEFT THEM FOR GREENER VAGANTE PASTURES. HE HAD A FACEBOOK PAGE THATS ALSO BEEN REMOVED
SYMEON WAS (IS) THE MAIN PUSHER TO MAKE IRTELL A MILAN SAINT.
SEEMS LIKE ANOTHER VAGANTE GROUP, ST. ISAAC SKETE, A OFFSHOOT OF CHRIST OF THE HILLS "MONASTERY" ALSO VENERATE IRTEL AS A SAINT
JOSEPH SUAIDEN: "and helps attack my bishop with lies and false assertions."
If it can be actually be proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt that Suaiden's Met. John's claim of knowing St. Met. Philaret personally and being asked to and giving him a promise of any sort is in fact true, and not a fib, then I will gladly and humbly offer my sincere apology.
UPDATE 7/7/2017 Their new website which promotes this pseudo-elder saint Theodore Irtel is
