Persist in faith, and keep astray from temptation... maybe I expressed badly because "resistere" and "persistere" are almost synonims in Italian, but since Mickey has understood what I meant, I think it's you who are provoking me.
Whoa! Way to take it personally. I was confused by your odd word choice, and your explanation of the Italian clears it up perfectly. In English, "resist" requires an object (that is, something to be resisted), whereas "persist" does not. Hence when you used "resist," I asked what was to be resisted.

Ok, everything clear now! Italian is a little bit less precise in English sometimes.

I have to agree with Y too.  Honestly, I am surprised the Roman Catholic Church continues to take part in any dialogue.  All they ever get is "proselytising", the filioque, the fourth crusade, etc., thrown in their face again and again by bitter curmudgeons. 

Personally, I am glad to see the nature of relations between the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Roman Catholic Church.  Imagine, basic courtesy in Church politics...

Are you serious when you say this? Huh I have not read anything about various meetings to suggest that it was anything but civil.

In Christ,
Andrew
