"Even if the Church made a mistake, exactness in the observance of times would not be as important as the offense caused by divisions and schisms."- St. John Chrysostom

Beautiful. what is the reference?
Great quote. To be fair, some of the Old Calendarist Schismatics don't condemn the New Calendar as outright heresy in and of itself. Instead, they see the New Calendar as a significant symptom of a larger problem, "the pan-heresy of ecumenism". Although many of us nowadays see this term as sure sign of fanaticism, it is utilized by the newly glorified St. Justin Popovich: "Ecumenism is the common name for the pseudo-Christianity of the pseudo-Churches of Western Europe. Within it is the heart of European humanism, with Papism as its head. All of pseudo-Christianity, all of those pseudo-Churches, are nothing more than one heresy after another. Their common evangelical name is: Pan-heresy."Embarassing statements (i.e. "the one God of Christians, Jews & Muslims" rhetoric)and actions (giving Qurans as gifts) by our hierarchs fuel this movement much more than the calendar issue.
