I'm surprise this wasn't mentioned earlier.

It would be more surprising if he had announced that they didn't want to become a member of the dialogue.

I wasn't surprised by that as much as the organizing of a meeting with the Pope and Pat Kirill. They've been saying for years they weren't ready to meet, and here he is saying "let's do it". Just surprised.

Yes, that is interesting. I wonder if we'll be hearing any response from either Pope Benedict or Patriarch Kirill.

Great news!  Hopefully the Pope will soon be able to visit Russia.
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.
