Glory to Jesus Christ,
It is the Roman Church that needs the Orthodox. While the Orthodox Church humbly confesses what it received from Christ and the Apostles, the Roman Church dares to add or change it. Metropolitan Athanasios of Cyprus has stated," He (the Pope) has been outside of the church for ten centuries now, he is not a canonical bishop, and he has no relation whatsoever to the reality of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Christ. It is one thing to receive him as a canonical bishop and quite another to speak to him as being a heterodox in order to reveal to him the truth of the Orthodox Faith and Tradition. Dialogue is not a bad thing when it is carried out based on correct presuppositions. However, it is wrong to say to these people that we recognize the Pope as a bishop, as our brother in Christ in the priesthood and in the faith. I cannot accept this, because we are lying when we say this, since all of the Holy Fathers teach exactly the opposite. Papism is a heresy and the source of many other heresies that trouble the entire world today."
The Latin Church, along with all the other branches that have separated from Rome, the Anglicans and Protestants, have departed from the early Church, separated themselves from the True Faith and Orthodoxy.
