Bulgaria Church Cannot Sell, Mortgage, Exchange Own Property
Angelov further said that the Convention has also approved the proposal that the Church begins to regularly provide the salaries of all priests, according to the established budget, adding that several eparchies have consistently being late in paying the salaries.
Wednesday is the third day of the Sixth National Church Convention held in the Rila Monastery for the second time this year. The firs session took place in May 2008. Bulgarian Patriarch Maxim, bishops of the Bulgarian Orthodox church and 120 delegates are taking part in the Convention.
The main topic of discussion is the new code determining the rights of the Holy Synod, including the right bestowed only on bishops to prepare the Holy oil, the right to canonize saints, and the Church candle, which is to bear the symbol of the respective church and can be made only in a facility holding a license issued by the Holy Synod.
Angelov further said that the Convention's agenda was quite extensive and the delegates were taking their time in order to create a contemporary and lasting Church code.
"The most important is the purity of the Faith and of the Orthodox teaching, the Service's rightness and authenticity," the Archpriest concluded.

We all know the Bulgarian property market is under pressure, but this is something new. What is going to happens next ?
Bulgaria Church adds churces and monasteries to a dead property market?
We know Bulgarians do not like to follow rules and decent manners, and there isnt much that can make them shameful. And anything can be sold for a black car and lazy days with bimbos in the coffee bar - like kicking out parents or grand parents to sell the house or appartment ?
But the Church ? Time for reality, Bulgaria, and some dignity!
