In light of my recent participation on a post by Father Gregory Jensen, "A Review of A Realism of Glory by James L. Kelly", I thought it pertinent to post this fine article I came across over at John of Ad Orientum's site.
His article, Clarity on Ecumenism, underscores another aspect of the whole ecumenical conversation that is largely forgotten, namely, that the position of the Latin Church towards the Orthodox Catholic Church is one of authority over us. Overtures towards the Orthodox dressed in niceties are prevalent in today's politically correct climate in these conversations, but a close inspection will reveal that the dialogues, in the shape they currently are in, are a cloak for motives other than what they may appear.
John in his post links to a Roman Catholic site, Rorate Caeli, where a conversation is taking place amongst the post's participants. It should be noted that I myself have rarely if ever run across this type of flagrant anti-Orthodox sentiment to the degree found over on this thread. But, like John, I would like to bring to the readers's attention this dimension of the "dialogue" which is often forgotten about or overlooked.
