"Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk (in the photo), said exactly this to the pope: that the Catholic Church will not be alone in the new evangelization of dechristianized Europe, because it will have at its side the Russian Orthodox Church, "no longer a competitor, but an ally."
Strong words! Who can deny it?

I have long felt the Catholic Church should move closer to the Orthodox Church. Would like to see this continue along with the possibility of a re-unification some day.
What a change from the Alexi II days just a couple of years ago!
