What do Catholics and Orthodox have in common?
QUESTION: what do Catholics and Orthodox have in common?
ANSWER: Perhaps it is much more pleasant to talk about what unites us than about differences. It is best to speak about this in the words of the Decree on Ecumenism of the Second Vatican Council: “The Churches of the East have from the very beginning that treasury from which the Church of the West has learned a lot in the liturgical field, in spiritual tradition and in canon law. It is also impossible to underestimate the fact that the fundamental dogmas of the Christian faith about the Holy Trinity and about God the Word, incarnate from the Virgin Mary, were determined at the Ecumenical Councils that took place in the East. “
