You seem to be quite angry that Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians are talking to one another about our similarities and differences. Lets just begin with the presupposition that you guys have been right all along and that we Catholics are wrong (of course this is completely false, but let's just assume it for the sake of argument). Don't you want us to return to what you perceive to be the true Church? You think telling us what big awful heretics we are will do the trick? Wouldn't it be more effective to dialogue with us and get us to see our "errors"?
Very happy to see this!!:
There's a New Star in the Russian Sky. His Name Is Aleksandr
He led the delegation from the ;patriarchate of Moscow in Assisi. Together with Metropolitan Hilarion, he is an emerging leader of the new generation. In great harmony with the Church of Pope Benedict
I'm sure you're very happy to see Orthodox hierarchs who may submit to your Pope. I don't think that's the case with Metropolitan ALEKSANDR necessarily (this news story really doesn't provide many details), but if that helps to give you false hope for Catholicism mowing down Orthodox opposition to its grand scheme of conquest of Christendom, more power to you.
This just came out today:
Patriarch Kirill States That Relations Between Orthodox and Greek Catholics Improved
The head of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC), Patriarch Kirill spoke about the relations between the Russian Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church in his address to the hearers of courses of the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, reported the web site of ROC.
The Patriarch of Moscow said that in Ukraine, “as the result of the violent actions of Greek Catholics in 1980-s-1990-s, the Orthodox believers lost their church buildings and still feel that their rights have been infringed” and that this question was discussed in the course of the contacts with the leadership of the Roman Catholic Church. At the same time, he stressed: “The conflict remains unsettled but at the same time, one should note that the relations between the Orthodox and Greek Catholics in Ukraine have improved.”
As he commented on the Orthodox-Catholic relations, on the whole, Patriarch Kirill pointed to the positive dynamic of the relations during the last five years.
