I have no problem with his holiness Alexey meeting with the Pope.
Anti-chrisitan groups are continuing their hatred towards christianity.
Things like homosexual marriage,killing unborn babies(abortion) should have no place in a modern civilised europe.
Their are many issues which divide catholics and orthodox,but issues such as these unite chritians.
Therefore a meeting followed by a condemnation speech of gay marriage/abortion is in order and overdue.
Remember our lord has told that those who reject his word face a fate worse than that of sodom and gommorah
Should you are I also be condemned the same way by our Lord for our many sins?
Or maybe we beleive that our sins are not so bad since they are not the really bad sins that other people are envolved in?
Lord have mercy on us all.
I hear what you are saying. These things pain my heart to the core. But we must find it in our hearts to pray for the unjust asking God to have mercy on them and us.
Our Lord in His passion among His seven word on the cross was "forgive them for they know not what they do".
WE are to be Christ like.
So we must of course defend the truth and 'admomish' sin; openly even. But not condemn.
All along we are still more agressively than anything else seeking mercy for all people and oursleves.
God bless you+++
