Having never heard the term, nothing.

Well, I guess the simplest definition would be (from a Catholic pov): ecumenism as non-Catholics "returning" to the Catholic Church.

By extension, I would imagine (though I could be wrong) that for Orthodox it means: ecumenism as non-Orthodox "returning" to the Orthodox Church.

Good answer.

When it comes to Catholic and Orthodox Catholic interactions I prefer to think of the ecclesiology of communion.
