Hi, does anyone happen to know what happened to that Christ of the Hills Monastery in Blanco, Texas? It isn’t Catholic, but they say they are Orthodox (I can’t figure out if they really are or they’re just lying about it, like how Sedevacantists claim they’re Catholic but really aren’t).
I read a couple articles that said that the monks there were alleged to be sex offenders. religionnewsblog.com/15391/new-sex-allegations-against-christ-of-the-hills-monastery and dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/news/texassouthwest/stories/DN-monastery_07tex.ART.State.Edition1.3e8b0d6.html.
Does anyone know what happened to those allegations? Were those monks convicted?
They had what supposedly was a miraculous Icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary that wept myrrh. Does anyone know what happened with that? The Catholic Church never investigated for some reason (I don’t think it’s because they’re not Catholic; the Church has looked into and approved the miraculous apparitions of Mary, Our Lady of Zeitoun, in Egypt even though it was Coptic Orthodox). Has the Orthodox Church investigated? Is it even a canonical-Orthodox monastery?
