This is true Brotherly love. I hope the dialogue between the E.O and O.O continue May God give us the Oneness of the Heart.

Both popes seemed genuinely happy. :)
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

And both are leading churches that are surrounded by the yoke of barbaric Moslems; pray for these devoted Christians and their faithful.

What a wonderful gesture of peace, love and respect!  This reminds me of Psalm 133:

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!"

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

Now that's how you do an "Axios"!
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Well that was a nice gesture. Perhaps seed has been planed which will bear fruit one day, or so one can hope.
Be comforted, and have faith, O Israel, for your God is infinitely simple and one, composed of no parts.

A true potpourri of popery

Beautiful, even saw some kissing of hands.  :o
