Yes, when it comes to Tradition and dogma, the Orthodox Church is quite monolithic, preserving the Catholic Church from heretical fictions.
Shocking as it might be to you, Orthodox catechis doesn't deal with the heresies of the Vatican-after all, the aim is to teach Orthodoxy to those coming into the Catholic Church-except those who have to adjure the Vatican's heresies to be chrismated/baptized.
Not really. It is not shocking at all. I don't need to do comparative doctrine to get a range of assertions from Orthodox catechesis. All I need to do is to look inside Orthodox teaching.
then do so some time.
You mentioned Romania. I know a little something about Romania.
Ce ceva stii despre Romania (what something do you know about Romania)?
All of Orthodoxy is divided over this business of the resumption of communion with the Catholic Church.
All of Orthoodxy is united in the communion of the Catholic Church. As for these talks with the Vatican, the average Latin gives more thought to your "sui juris" ecclesiastical communities than the average (or above average) Orthodox in the Catholic Church gives to those talks. For one thing, the "talks" are talked about much and its goings on not widely disseminated, perhaps because Met. Zizioulis doesn't want to end up in the Bosphoros.
It's not divided along yea or nay in black and white but there's a dividing line that cuts through the continuum in any event. You do not speak for everyone though there are those who do speak as you do,
...like the Holy Synod of Romania, the Holy Synod of Russia, etc. and even the EP at Georgetown....
and you are small enough to know who is who.
You won't get people responding favorably to me publicly on a Forum like this because...well...they see what you do to me and who needs that?
Matthew 10:24 The disciple is not above the master, nor the servant above his lord.
25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the good man of the house Beelzebub, how much more them of his household?
26 Therefore fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known.
27 That which I tell you in the dark, speak ye in the light: and that which you hear in the ear, preach ye upon the housetops.
32 Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven.
33 But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.
If they can't confess you anonymously on the internet, let alone in public, it can't be much of a tidal of wave of support as you are claiming in the Orthodox Church.
But you cannot push us away so easily anymore, brother Catholic, because you are not pushing with all of Orthodoxy when you try...
Then it wouldn't be so easy.
