Catholic, Orthodox Churches To Unite?
http://www.javno.com/en/world/clanak.php?id=98118

Orthodox leader suggests "dual unity" for Eastern Catholics
http://www.catholicculture.org/news/features/index.cfm?recnum=59186

I find this news encouraging. It reminds me of the Zoghby Initiative:

Archbishop Elias Zoghby was truly ahead of his time.

This is old stuff.  Pure speculation.  I wouldn't believe it for a second.

Next topic?

Acolyte,

We've discussed at least the first two articles already on this forum.  You may want to check out earlier threads before posting links like these with the idea of initiating new discussion.

Regarding the third article, I'm not exactly sure why I would or should find Archbishop Elias (Zoghby)'s work for "unity" encouraging.

The above article was refuted as hoax by EP.

Please read his book Are We All Schismatics?, which explains the reasons for the Great Schism and how it can be repaired.
