So you admit your expectations are ill founded.
IOW, no, you cannot cite Orthodox receiving your supreme pontiff as our supreme pontiff.
Oh? Do you have a citation of said Orthodox refering to your supreme pontiff as such and as such receiving him?
I could most likely find some citations on-line of Internet Orthodox moaning and beefing about the fact that Pope Benedict XVI has been honored in ways that are most unsatisfactory to people who think as you demonstrate that you think here.
Never said that. Never suggested it. Would not expect it.
Not in the least. When all dialogue is stopped or when Orthodoxy tells Rome no more interaction at all...then you can crow. Till then I remain ever hopeful.
After the decision of the bishops of the Church of Greece, immediately prior to the Cyprus Meeting in 2009, that no statements from the dialogue may be promulgated without proper examination and approval by the Synod of bishops, the dialogue has been greatly weakened. The bishops' position was decided by the Ravenna Document of 2007 and what was called the Cretan Statement which was to be studied and approved at Cyprus 2009. The bishops came to realise that the dialogue had begun to act beyond its powers and was formulating theology, and especially ecclesiology, unacceptable to the bishops.
The Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue Between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church has had its hands tied ever since, at Cyprus 2009 and Vienna 2010.
It is, by the way, inappropriate to deride " people who think as you demonstrate that you think here" since this cautious approach is that of our bishops and not of a loony minority. You harm the dialogue by slighting our bishops.
