Metropolitan Mar Melchizedek

Welcome to our public profile site. We chose the Latin motto ex voto suscepto* as an indication of our devotion to the holy Orthodox faith in a sincere and Christ-like manner. Hence, we do not adhere to man-made church politics but embrace true canonicity that lies far beyond elitism. Traditional Orthodox Christianity is based on one's faith and practice, not on membership in exclusive assemblies.

*An ex-voto is a votive offering to a saint or to God. It is given in fulfillment of a vow (hence the Latin term, short for ex voto suscepto, "from the vow made") in gratitude or devotion.
