I hope that everyone now understands the Catholic Church's doctrines, that the Orthodox are not part of The Church, that they are outside of the ONE True Church, the Catholic Church. The Orthodox are in schism and heresy, and their sacraments, although valid, are useless to the recipient who is in a state of schism and heresy, and other mortal sins.
That said, the NORM OF FAITH AS NORM OF LIFE,by Kirill I, patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, is 100% dead on accurate. There is not a pope since the death of Pius XII, that has written anything as clear and accurate as that writing. On the contrary, what has been written by those popes from John XXIII till present, have been in favor of the principles of the French revolution. The only fault i find with the article is where he presumes to be following tradition in being a Russian Orthodox, and presumes that he is part of The Church.

Only willfully is one guilty of anything.
You should be supporting this diologue as it is Christ's will that we be one..how else is that going to come about without talking to one another?
