PFFT!

I echo the cross Troparion that Orthodoc Posted...
O Lord save thy people and Bless thine Inheritence, Grant Victories to Orthodox Christians over their Adversaries (Barbarians, Catholics, Protestants, and islamo-Fascists),  and By Virtue of thy cross preserve thy habitation

One can only hope that CatholicEagle was only expressing his happiness that the UGCC was "activating their pastoral service" and that he was not insinuating that the Orthodox are not Christians, but only he can answer that one.

I hear this every week at Church[well almost]. It is not right to use the words of the Liturgy or of the Bible[I was thinking of using a psalm agianst you]] to fight against each other. THis would be a sacrilege[according to the Catholic religion]

Exactly!  The RCC has been using the Unia as a way of deception against the uneducated Orthodox for 400+ years and rather than end the schism it has brought nothing but hatred and distrust on both sides.

The RCC and the Orthodox have agreed that the Unia IS NOT THE BRIDGE BETWEEN ORTHODOXY AND ROMAN CATHOLICISM.  Too bad the Uniates haven't gotten the word.

Awhile back I predicted things like this and the establishment of  a Uniate diocese in Russia itself was just a matter of time once the UGCC moved its headquarters to Kiev.  And many of you chastised me for it.

"By their deeds they shall be known."  The words may change but the actions remain the same as far as the RCC is concerned.

[I hear this every week at Church[well almost]. It is not right to use the words of the Liturgy or of the Bible[I was thinking of using a psalm agianst you] to fight against each other. THis would be a sacrilege[according to the Catholic religion]

???   ???????   

Why would they be singing a hymn asking for victory to the Orthodox Christians in a Roman Catholic Church?  Please expalin.

Just a note: you can't report my posts--I'm the administrator. What am I going to do, ban myself? LOL

What I meant is that you sound very immature in dealing with the problem of the religious groups in Ukraine. The matter is much more complex. Calling them Chrsitian soldiers seems to be geared towards inciting further discord.

Hang on a sec, I wasn't even talking about why the UGCC is "activating their pastoral service", I was merely commenting on your post. And I may be silly, but there's nothing wrong with that, right?  ;D
