Can somebody here explain how Orthodox Canonizations work?
The reason I ask is that the centennial of the murder of the Russian Imperial Family is tomorrow, and I know that they were canonized twice by branches of the Russian Orthodox Church. What does that mean in context? As a Catholic, I’m really only familiar with canonization from the Catholic prospective.
Is the canonization binding in any fashion on other Orthodox churches?
For those of us who are Catholic, does canonization in an Orthodox church, since the unfortunate separation between the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches, have any sort of impact on us? I.e., do we regard it as valid, persuasive, etc?
