Habent Papa. Multos Annis! Many Years! I pray that "axios" is in order.

(I apologize for my Android spell check. It changed axios to another word and I failed to proof it. No offense was meant.)

Definitely hurt. Most Catholics on the ground are already deluded about how close EOy and RCism is, and such an event would just push them further into delusion, not to mention giving fuel to the anti-Catholic conspiracy theory dreams of a small minority of Orthodox.

I think it could hurt, because he would have to latinize himself immediately. That's probably not a good thing.

Depends on which "sui juris" he came from, ranging from Melchite (the best) to the UGCC (worst).

Thats what I was thinking. On the surface, it seems nice. But it would definitely reduce the differences between us.

Oh?  You know that the first Latin Archbishop of Rome, St. Victor, did not come until c. 188, and the see wasn't fully Latinized until Pontiff Damasus c. 380.

Who would tell His Holiness that he would have to Latinize?

From what we know of Pope Francisco I:  He lives a simple, monastic-like life, a Jesuit, and who used public transportation in Argentina. Axios!  Multos Annos!  Muchos años!  Don't know about him and the east.

Apparently Pope Francis is good friends with  Patriarch Svyatoslav of UGCC.

Now, I see why Russia might have an issue.  Wink

Pope Francis I and Patriarch Bartholomew I both at the same time. With all of available names of Saints, I wonder when the last time both were the first to use a name and hold office at the same time?  No significance, just trivia.
