Old News?

In keeping with this blog's motto, I submit that while it will all too soon be three years "old", the homily delivered by the Patriarch of Constantinople on the occasion of the Pope of Rome's 2006 attendance at the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy for the Feast of St Andrew is worth our humble reflection. May we all increase our prayers for the Unity of the Faith and may the day soon come when we merely remember our divisions as a closed page of history.




If we can recite the Holy Creed together in unison, why is there not unity among us?




Also worth consideration, this link: http://cdn3.libsyn.com/thehiddenpearl/eastern_catholic_churches.mov?nvb=20090103150207&nva=20090104151207&t=03383a145aef47de3ba86

It's a slow download, but also worthy of our consideration.

(Just overlook the visual of the NAB {"Not a Bible"}.)

Sometimes it seems that our progress towards unity is a bit like what some of our missionaries said about African processions "two steps forward and one step back". Slowly, slowly we are getting there.
