Holy Synod decided to remove Paulos’ statue

Ethiopian Holy synodAddis Ababa, 27 Oct 2010– Holy Synod of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo church decided to remove Aba Paulos’s statue from Bole Medhani Alem Church.  EMF reporter from Addis said that the synod also denounces the new culture of displaying the patriarch’s photo in churches. They decided to remove all photos of the patriarch from church walls too.  Since the erection, Aba Paulos’s statuary was rejected by all members of Orthodox Christianity because the church glorifies the divine spirit rather than human flesh.
