NOTE:  After reading the post below, please visit the following link for a clarification.


I am glad to hear that the Massachusetts Mission, Our Lady of Fatima Chapel, has disassociated itself from the apostolate of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Boston, Kentucky).  God bless the Mission Coordinator and family for having the courage to stand for the truth and not be fooled by the lies of Ambrose Moran, a man with a public schismatic past who refuses to publicly admit and repent of that past.  I hope that other Mission Coordinators will come to understand the moral danger they and the Mass attendees are placing themselves in by their continued support of Fr. Pfeiffer and the apostolate of Our Lady of Mount Carmel now that Fr. Pfeiffer intends to pursue a ministerial association with Ambrose Moran.


Here is the Our Lady of Fatima Chapel’s announcement:

The Right Rev. Dr. Andriy Chirovsky, S.Th.D., Founding Director of the The Metropolitan Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies, now located at St. Michael’s College of the University of Toronto, and current pastor of St. Michael Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church in Tucson, Arizona, was ordained a priest by Josyf Cardinal Slipyj on June 8, 1980.  I asked him to watch Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer’s recent conference on Ambrose Moran and provide any comments regarding support or opposition to his claims.  Fr. Chirovsky was gracious enough to do so and provided the following comments as part of a response he sent to me via e-mail:


“As to ‘Archbishop’ Moran, I can assure you that he was not consecrated to the episcopate by Josyf Cardinal Slipyj. I was in Rome 1974-76 at Cardinal Slipyj’s Seminary. I personally knew all three bishops consecrated in secret by Cardinal Slipyj (all three now deceased): Iwan Choma, Stepan Czmil and Lubomyr (later Cardinal)* Husar. I also knew Cardinal Slipyj’s actual coadjutor and successor, Myroslav Ivan Cardinal Lubachivsky.


“The very fact that he dared to sign the antimension of Josyf Cardinal Slipyj with his own name (when it had already been signed by Cardinal Slipyj) is an act of desecration of the antimension, a cloth with relics in it which is akin to the altar stone in the Latin Rite. No Catholic Bishop would have the effrontery to do so to such a holy object.”


I thank Fr. Chirovsky for providing this first-hand knowledge against the claim made by Ambrose Moran that he was consecrated a bishop by Josyf Cardinal Slipyj and the subsequent denouncing of the claim that the same Cardinal gave Ambrose Moran an antimension as a remembrance of that consecration.


If you would like to contact Fr. Chirovsky, please do so at the following:

The link at the bottom shows exactly whom Cardinal Slipyj consecrated as bishop and when.  The three secretly consecrated bishops mentioned above are listed, but there is no Ambrose Moran.

Father Hugo Ruiz V. requested that the following unanswered letter be made public.


August 28th 2018


Dear Father Hewko,


I am sending this letter to you but I would like you to communicate it, please, also to Father Pfeiffer.


Since I met you with Father Pfeiffer, I have always had in very good concept your people and your apostolate. I note that you have reacted correctly to the FSSPX crisis and that, with great zeal, you have helped many of the faithful abandoned by the neo-FSSPX in the four corners of the United States, and elsewhere. Likewise, your firmness to avoid any doctrinal decline in what today is called “resistance” which would simply be the authentic continuation of the work of Monsignor Lefebvre and the Church.


It is true that times are difficult and that we do not know how much longer this terrible crisis can last, not only for the Church but also for society and the world. But it is also true that in this expectation we must always refer to Divine Providence since God can do everything and he watches over us, we must always believe that, at a given moment, God will come to our aid, because he cannot abandon his indefinitely, it is impossible. However, He puts us to the test for a time, and that is why we must know how to wait and not rush into trying to force a given situation.


The fact that you do not yet find a bishop to ordain your seminarians does not mean that you would never find him. If we have to wait, we must wait, but we should not force the situation and resort to a “bishop” who is, at best, doubtful. It was sufficiently proved that “Bishop” Ambrose Moran was not ordained by Cardinal Slipyj and that even after the alleged ordination he continued his activities in the schismatic Orthodox church. The solution to your problems is not there, it is obviously not God’s will. By this decision you can break the trust of the faithful that have recourse to your apostolate and to whom you have so far done so much good. I ask you fraternally, as a priest whom you esteem, to distance yourself definitively from this man who is not clear in anything about what he does, all this is a false solution, an illusion. Henceforth, it is necessary to make a public retraction because the ordination “under condition” of Father Poisson is a very serious matter, you must dissociate yourself publicly and definitively from Ambroise Moran, because by this error, even your Catholic orthodoxy is compromised. If you do not go back and make reparation for this mistake I personally would be obliged, to my regret, to move away from you and your apostolate, for it is a matter of first order.


You can count with my fraternal prayers and support in all that is good.


May the Immaculate Virgin enlighten and guide you,


Father Hugo Ruiz V.



(French original version)


Bien cher Mr l’abbé Hewko,


je vous adresse ce courrier a vous mais je voudrais que vous le communiquiez, s’il vous plaît, aussi a Mr l’abbé Pfeiffer.


Depuis que je vous connais avec Mr l’abbé Pfeiffer j’ai toujours eu en très bon concept vos personnes et de votre apostolat. Je constate que vous avez réagi correctement vis-a-vis de la crise de la FSSPX et que, avec beaucoup de zèle, vous avez aide beaucoup des fidèles abandonnez au quatre coins des États Unis, et ailleurs. De même, votre fermeté pour éviter tout déclin doctrinal dans ce que l’on appelle aujourd’hui “la résistance” laquelle ne serait simplement que la continuation authentique de l’oeuvre de Monseigneur Lefebvre et de l’Église.


C’est vrai que le temps sont difficiles et que nous ne savons pas combien de temps peut encore durer cette crise affreuse, non seulement de l’Église mais aussi de la société et du monde. Mais aussi c’est vrai que dans cette attente nous devons toujours faire référence a la Divine Providence puisque Dieu peut tout et qu’il veille sur nous, il faut toujours croire que, a moment donné, Dieu viendra a notre secours, car il ne peut pas abandonner les siens indéfiniment, c’est impossible. Cependant il nous met a l’épreuve pour un temps, et c’est pour cela qu’il faut savoir attendre et ne pas se précipiter en voulant forcer une situation donné.


Le fait que vous ne trouvez pas encore un évêque pour ordonner vos séminaristes cela ne veut pas dire que vous ne le trouverais jamais. S’il faut attendre il faut attendre, mais il ne convient pas de forcer la situation et de faire recours a un “évêque” qui est, dans les meilleurs des cas, douteux. Il a été suffisamment prouve que “Mgr” Ambroise Moran n’a pas été ordonne par le Cardinal Slipyj et que même après la prétendue ordination il a continue ses activités dans l’église orthodoxe schismatique. La solution a vos problèmes ne se trouve pas là, ce n’est pas évidement la volonté de Dieu. Par cette décision vous pouvez casser la confiance des fidèles qu’on fait recours a votre apostolat et a qui vous avez jusqu’au présent fait tant de bien. Je vous demande fraternellement, comme un prêtre que vous estime, de vous éloigner définitivement de cette homme qui n’est pas clair en rien de ce qu’il fait, tout cela est une fausse solution, une illusion. Désormais il est nécessaire faire une rétractation publique car l’ordination “sous condition” de Mr l’abbé Poisson est un affaire très grave, il faut vous dissocier publiquement et définitivement de Ambroise Moran, car par cet erreur, même votre orthodoxie catholique est compromise. Si vous ne faites marche en arrière et faites réparation de cet erreur moi personnellement je serais obligé, a mon regret, de m’éloigner de vous et de votre apostolat, car c’est un affaire de premier ordre.


Vos pouvez comptez avec mes fraternelles prières et mon soutien dans tout ce qui est bien.


Que la Vierge Immaculée vous éclaire et vous guide,


Abbé Hugo Ruiz V.

In this sermon given on September 9, 2018, Fr. Rafael speaks out publicly for the first time against Ambrose Moran.  Furthermore, he advises us to no longer attend the Masses of Fr. Pfeiffer or Fr. Hewko due to their ministerial association with Ambrose Moran.  I agree!


For the Ambrose Moran portion, start at the 32 minutes and zero seconds mark.



This sermon was originally published here.

In late 2015, Fr. Juan Ortiz sent several documents to Fr. Fr. Bohdan Bilinksy, the then and current Episcopal Vicar of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Toronto and Eastern Canada, for review and analysis.  Fr. Bilinsky sent Fr. Ortiz this letter in response.  Of particular interest for this post is this 1976 letter, which is also found on this website, allegedly written by Bishop Isidore Borecky, the then Eparch of Toronto.  Ambrose Moran presented this letter to Fr. Pfeiffer as additional evidence that he was consecrated a bishop by Cardinal Slipyj.  Furthermore, this letter states that Cardinal Slipyj was to announce that Ambrose Moran would be appointed his successor as Metropolitan Archbishop.  Ambrose Moran never did become Metropolitan Archbishop after Cardinal Slipyj’s death in 1984.  Instead, it was Cardinal Myroslav Ivan Lubachivsky, who was co-consecrated a bishop by Cardinal Slipyj in 1979, that became his successor.  Well, then, why wasn’t Ambrose Moran appointed the successor as per the letter?  For the answer, let us read the words of Fr. Bilinsky:


“A copy of this letter is not in our files. The signature on this document is not congruent with other signatures of Bishop Isidore’s that we have on file. I allege that it is a forgery.”


Fr. Bilinsky is spot on regarding the letter being a forgery.  First, note that the letter does not contain a protocol number, which is typical in official Church correspondence.  Compare it to this letter (also found on this website), which is in the Eparchy of Toronto archives, as attested to by Fr. Bilinsky himself.  The letter found in the archives contains Protocol No. 2/75c.  Second, let us recall in this post that Ambrose Moran wrote a letter in 1980 to Bishop Isidore Borecky, which Fr. Bilinsky also attests to being in the Eparchy of Toronto archives, addressing himself as “Father” Moran, referencing Protocol No. 2/75c, and requesting a letter of reference to be admitted to the Orthodox Church in America.  These all show that the 1976 letter is a fake.  As a side note, the 1980 letter is NOT posted on this website.  Hmm.  I wonder why.


So let us see now. Ambrose Moran fakes an episcopal consecration certificate, fakes a photo of himself with Cardinal Slipy, and fakes a letter in which he has Bishop Isidore Borecky state that he was consecrated a bishop by and appointed successor to Cardinal Slipyj.  What should be one’s response toward Ambrose Moran in this situation?  Run far away!
