I wonder how many of us pray for unity in truth.

The Orthodox do, at every Divine Liturgy:

Having prayed for the unity of faith and for the communion of the Holy Spirit, let us commit ourselves, and one another, and our whole life to Christ our God.

Yeah, but I've seen people here insist that it really means insular unity within the Orthodox themselves, not those awful people outside.  Undecided So, I don't really know what it means when I pray that now.

"If we were to resume communion... there would be ONE Church".
The many Churches are the one Church; for the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church exists - whole and entire - only in and through the many local (eparchial / diocesan) Churches.

Good point. It isn't that there would be one Church but that there is one Church.

The decks do not stack that way here.  I'd open myself up for worse.  Besides there's more pity than annoyance.

This conversation has gotten quite bizarre. Does the door being open for those outside to come in refer to something other than swimming the Bosphorus? And if so what?

Welcomed when you attend services, perhaps, but you, a non-Orthodox, receiving communion from an Orthodox chalice is still out of the question.

I know others like me who do, and with the blessing of both Orthodox and Catholic bishop.  In fact the "arrangements" were made at that level.

I am not in such a position, nor do I claim to be.  If I were I'd know enough to keep my mouth closed about it.  Since I am not I can speak and make reference to the elephant in the living room.

When I was still in the RCC, I saw, several times, Russian Orthodox kids come up and take Communion at the Friday morning Mass. That was the Mass for the school kids, and a lot of Orthodox go to the Roman Catholic school, because there isn't an Orthodox school in this area. Nobody seemed to get angry or have problems then.

Ad hominem?  Hardly.  EM is openly advocating behavior which the highest authority of an autocephalous Church (the Patriarch of Romanian and its Holy Synod) recently reiterated, as have the other autocephalous Churches in the past and now, as worthy of deposition of a cleric and unworthy of an Orthodox Christian.  If an Orthodox cleric is communing her knowingly, then he should openly submit to her supreme pontiff and cease spitting on the authority of the Orthodox bishops he commemorates in the diptychs.

They can sail up the Bosphorus as well.  Just not in a battleship, nor weigh anchor unless they are jumping in.

Did Abp. Justinian or Met. Hilarion know?  Because I can assure you, they would not approve.

Then someone is due for a deposition, for, unlike the OO, no such agreement exists for followers of the Vatican to receive communion.

The excommunications between the EO and RCC were repealed in 1965. What schism?

Seems to me that by definition it is sin, and those who actively promote it, on either side, are sinning.

Ad hominem?  Hardly.  EM is openly advocating behavior which the highest authority of an autocephalous Church (the Patriarch of Romanian and its Holy Synod) recently reiterated, as have the other autocephalous Churches in the past and now, as worthy of deposition of a cleric and unworthy of an Orthodox Christian.  If an Orthodox cleric is communing her knowingly, then he should openly submit to her supreme pontiff and cease spitting on the authority of the Orthodox bishops he commemorates in the diptychs.

I guess calling someone a thief is okay on this board now? How things have changed...
uncanonical/unlawful taking communion from an Orthodox chalice...that has NEVER been okay.

What schism?

Do you mean from the Catholic p.o.v.?

"schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him."

Unless you can point to and/or name the elephant, no, you can't.

Really?  I have.
At first I'm tempted to be my own conservative self, and account that I haven't seen you do so to the fact that I don't go through all your posts.  But since I've seen others call you on your silence, I don't think I've missed a thing.

Others have.
Sure.  I've mentioned Met. Coreanu.

It is hardly a secret.
Neither is the discipline and warning imposed on Met. Coreanu by his Patriarch and Holy Synod.

Except to those covering their eyes and plugging their ears.

Simply because it annoys you does not make it any less a reality of our Churches in this schismatic status which we attribute to one another.
It's more than my personal annoyance. Your ecclesiastical community is not only in schism, it is in heresy.

Odd how you are so dismissive of the 92-8% of the Vatican's flock who flout Humanae Vitae, but try to delude others into thinking that some flaky-nameless-fringe giving communion to heterodox get to define the parameters of the Church.

Something you can and would get deposed over is not economy, so you are off point.  Sort of like renigade priests marrying homosexual couples: it doesn't canonize gay marriage.  Ditto Old Catholic bishops ordaining women.

The excommunications between the EO and RCC were repealed in 1965. What schism?

It's politics.

Seems to me that by definition it is sin, and those who actively promote it, on either side, are sinning.
Refusing communion to heretics is a virtue.

True.  You should stop tugging so hard on it, al Misry.  It's no fringe that has used economy to minister to the flock.

Only some Orthodox bishops would say that the Catholic Church is a Church of Heretics.  So all you do here is pull more wool over the fact that Orthodoxy is internally conflicted over the schism.

Which has been my point for taking on this particular subject.  Thanks for helping out here.

Roman Catholic popes have also held variegated views; Pope Honorius comes to mind. Does that fact make your church internally conflicted over monothelitism?

If we are speaking of one...most likely not...If we speak of many over many hundreds of years...yes.

It is not all one-sided however...There are Catholics who hate what I say as well.

Somehow, by God, that too can be over-come so that we all may be one.

To be fair you were speaking of bishops; you do realize there are dissenting bishops in your own tradition, no? Does a pro-abortion dissenting bishop in your church mean your church is internally conflicted over abortion?

You are quite correct.  The Roman rite is in de facto schism and has been for some time over a number of moral issues, liturgical issues, and theological issues.  So it is possible to be schismatic on some issues and to still remain in communion.

That is something else to consider within this topic of so-called intercommunion.

I don't see how this relates to what I was talking about.  I was not talking about "sneaking" communion.  I was speaking of circumstances where there are actually arrangements made in economy, or where nothing is said in tacit acceptance.

But to answer your personal question: One always hopes that even an unworthy communion is of benefit to soul and body and not to the condemnation of anyone!!
