Fr. Pavlos Stratigeas gives a primer on the tragic history of how the adoption of the Papist Calendar came to used in the Orthodox Christian world in 1924.

This program was recorded in the late 1980s when the heresy of heresies - Ecumenism - had not metastasized to the extent it has today, 17 years later (2015).
