This is an old interview from 2005 I recently ran across.  Anyone know what, if any, changes have come about since then?

It's an interesting and certainly provocative interview.  Seems timely, and controversial, to read it with the coming meeting.

I like Metropolitan JOHN's works on ecclesiology and personhood, but, as an ecumenist, he is dangerous.

BTW, does anyone why he always includes his last name?  I thought Bishops and Metropolitans were always called simply by their monastic title such as HIs All-Holines VARTHOLOMAIOS or Metropolitan PHILIP, etc.

Good question about the name.  I included it because I know he is controversial and wanted to make clear which "John" I was referencing.  Maybe that's the reason in general?

«Catholics must take seriously the notion of the full Catholicity of the local Church promoted by Vatican Council II, and must apply it to their ecclesiology».

Physician, heal thyself.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
