Decree Appointing Bishop Ambrose Moran as Successor for the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church in the U.S.A.

In the link below, you will find a decree appointing Bishop Ambrose Moran to be the successor of Metropolitan Hryhorij (Gregory), presiding consecrating bishop of Ambrose Moran in 1976, and Metropolitan Andrew for the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church in the U.S.A.  The decree was signed by four schismatic bishops, including Ambrose Moran, and dated December 15, 1983.  The link below provides a copy of the document that Bishop Ambrose Moran himself provided to someone (I will not say to whom, but it was NOT to Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer).  This document shows that Bishop Ambrose Moran was still a schismatic in 1983, seven years after his consecration by the schismatic Metropolitan Hryhorij (Gregory).  Cardinal Josyf Slipyj died on September 7, 1984.  If Cardinal Slipyj truly consecrated or re-consecrated Ambrose Moran in 1976, then why was Ambrose Moran under the wing of Metropolitan Hryhorij (Gregory) in 1983 while Cardinal Slipyj was still alive? You would think he would have been under the wing of Cardinal Slipyj (or someone else appointed by Rome), if Ambrose Moran remained Catholic from 1976 after his alleged consecration by Cardinal Slipyj to the Cardinal’s death in 1984.
