Well the heads of ACROD and GOARCH will never say anything against the EP.

Why not? Are they afraid Constantinople will once again "taketh away"?

I honestly and seriously wish that the Orthodox would reunite with the Catholics, re-establish that their Patriarchs are equal in authority with the Pope, then get together and vote out Pope Francis. Is that doable?

Sometimes I wish they had Confession daily.  :)

I heard that RCC Pope John Paul II used to go to Confession daily.

I like the fact Catholic Churches are open daily to pray. This is the one thing I don't like about Orthodox Churches is that they are normally locked. I understand it, especially in those areas of the world where they risk vandalism, and even in the U.S. However, it was always nice to know if you needed a quiet space to pray the church's doors were always open.

Same with our Eastern Catholic church, mainly because there are two elderly priests who live there alone and we've had security issues and break-ins in the past.

On a brighter note, there's a homeless guy who's been sleeping on the steps outside our parish hall since last spring. He came over to us a couple of weeks ago, told us he'd just gotten a job in construction, thanked us for letting him crash there, shook our hands, and introduced himself -- as "Angel." So perhaps we've had some security after all. :angel:

In Serbia, Cyprus, some places in Poland (and I suppose many other places) they're opened daily. It's not specific of the Orthodox Churches.
Edit: but yeah when i was visitng USA it was annoying as many of the churches i've just seen walls.
