== Why the emphasis on the Observations? ==
I don’t understand why anyone is concerned to argue that “all” of the changes required by the ''Observations'' were made by the Antiochians to their Western rite liturgies – even if such a claim were true. The ''Observations'' were the report of a special commission of the Moscow Patriarchate to address a specific question – how must the American Book of Common Prayer of 1892 be modified to make it acceptable for Orthodox use by those Episcopalians that were in discussion with Bishop (Saint) Tikhon. They have no official standing for any Church other than the Russian, and it is doubtful that Russian bishops today would feel bound by a 1904 commission report about a BCP that has not been used for almost 100 years. --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] 02:03, August 6, 2008 (UTC)

Hopefully, then, we might get to developing the article, or talking about who Angwin was... — by [[User:Pistevo|<font color="green">Pιs</font><font color="gold">τévο</font>]] <sup>''[[User talk:Pistevo|<font color="blue">talk</font>]]'' ''[[User talk:Pistevo/dev/null|<font color="red">complaints</font>]]''</sup> at 21:56, August 6, 2008 (UTC)
