Which is why it is probably a bad pastoral decision to intercommune with the Eastern Orthodox.
It doesn't matter WHAT the Roman Catholic Church or any of the Rites within it think about inter-communion.
For one, the Eastern Orthodox CATHOLIC bishops prohibit inter-communion.
This post has turned into a CAF type thread where the Roman Catholics, and I don't care what rite they belong to, have just shelled out nothing but the typical;
-We're the only church on the planet everyone bows to the Pope
-Canon quotes abound
-the talk of "traditional catholics" look, I don't think you understand that the Church is to be one and these little tag names separate the members into different groups. What the heck is a traditional Catholic anyway,
Oh, yeah as evidenced by this whole ridiculous thread it is just another example that Roman Catholics can pick and choose what they want to believe and what they want to call themselves and who they will share communion with this week. Bad news, traditional catholics sound just like the cafeteria catholics they complain about and judge.
-Still no one gets the point that the Eastern Orthodox Catholic Church is a Church. We have been around since day one. The conversation keeps going in the direction of, well we decided at some point that they were a church so we'll give them communion oh and they're like us too.
-Still the fight is raging here on this thread among Roman Catholics of the Latin and Byzantine Rites. You don't see any Eastern Orthodox Catholics arguing on this thread among themselves, why? I can give you the answer but hey, it won't matter anyway.
-I still love the traditional Catholic tag, it's my favorite. Can I be a traditional tea loving pre-council of lyons Catholic? Sure I could that would be adding to the diversity right?
But I'm still told "this isn't the Roman Catholic praxis, or teaching on this or that" I know the Roman Catholic teaching, the standard stuff you are to believe whether you are Byzantine rite or Chaldean rite.
