LOL Cheesy
I'm so glad to finally meet a Roman Catholic who doesn't offer me "peace" by trying tell to me that we are "one Church" and that The Body of Christ is divided.

Its because the Body of Christ cannot be divided. We can agree on that. Grin

No, it's clear from their printed statements that they mean the east in general, both Catholics and Orthodox.

LOL. No. Honey does not mean watering down dogma as the two lung theory does. It means being charitable in one's presentation of truth.

Or at least it will be if he gives up on the 'True Church is comprised of all those in communion with Rome' stuff.

LOL!  Cheesy

Seriously though, even if he doesn't "pull a GiC" I'm finding this refreshing. If there ever is to be a union between the Latin and Orthodox Churches, this is how we need to meet in dialogue- honestly and as rational beings, not in emotive clap-trap which seeks to sweep doctrinal differences under the carpet. I would prefer to dialogue with one Roman Catholic like "Papist" than with a thousand who say we should "just get together because we're making Jesus sad by dividing the Church." I'd rather face someone from the other side who is as prepared as I am to say "one of us is right and one of us is wrong", rather than "we're both right" (which denies the Singularity of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church), or "we're both wrong" (which denies the very existence of the Church Militant and sees it as some future reality).

Papist,

Then Pope John Paul II  apologized for WHAT? Please clue me in.

This is exactly the kind of junk I was referring to above.

A friend of mine was at a RCC in Chicago and heard a couple behind him speaking Greiko (the almost extinct Greek dialect of Calabria that is peppered with Italian words).

Does the EP have missions there to revive Orthodoxy? I know the GOC does. It must be interesting and difficult work.

I heard of a group of evangelical Christians that were part of the non-denominational national collge Christian organization called intervarsity who all converted to Eastern Orthodox Christianity. Of course I listen to a tape by an ex-Pentacostal minister. He and most of his congregation converted to the Catholic Church.

Referring to the Evangelical Orthodox, the 2000 who converted to the Antiochian Orthodox all in one day?
Yes, well discussed here before.

How silly of me to bring this up. I should have assumed that it would have been discussed in great detail on this forum. Smiley The only thing left for these converts to do is go all the way and come into communion with Rome. LOL. Grin

Why? They are now in the Catholic Church - you might follow their lead.   Wink

Part of my mom's family (through marriage) is of this Greiko people. Until now, I did not understand how the Calabrian Italians in the family would say "we spoke a very different italian dialect which was actually Greek..." As far as I know, they are all Catholic but I've heard them mention something about some orthodox churches there...oh and many churches in Calabria and Sicily look exactly like orthodox churches, whereas when you go to northern italy, the churches are all gothic or romanesque.
