What is it, precisely, that (you think) I make of these instances?
"You" in this case is the general "you", not "You, J Michael". What you (anyone, someone) make of these instances says more about you (the particular person interpreting individual instances of communion) than about reality.
Oh, I fully intend to "stay Catholic", and I've never really complained against you not joining us.
Once again, the general "you"...
In fact, the complaints that I have seen and heard come far more from the Orthodox against Catholics not joining them. Your experience, however, may be different.
In the context of the Roman Catholic Church making overtures toward the not Rome-united East and Orient, I'm not entirely sure the Eastern response is unreasonable. Again, in keeping with the thread, you must be Orthodox
if you want us to consider you the same church and hence be united with you, which does seem to be the goal of the RCC in all of these ecumenical dialogues it likes to have (of course, if in reality you don't actually care -- which I would completely understand -- then we don't really need to talk about anything). This whole "two lungs" business or having us join one of the Eastern Catholic churches isn't going to cut it for most Orthodox.
