Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch to Attend Pope's Installation Mass, First Time in History

For the first time in history, the leader of the Orthodox Church will be attending the installation of a pope of the Roman Catholic Church.

The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople will be present for the installation mass for Pope Francis on Tuesday. This is the first time an Ecumenical Patriarch has been present for this Catholic mass since the Great Schism of 1054, when the Eastern and Western Church cut ties with one another.

In an interview with a television network in Istanbul, Turkey, Bartholomew explained that the decision to attend was a gesture to showcase improving relations between the two Ancient Churches. ...

Reunion? No, they never were united. It will be a first.

No, John Y., What's So Wrong With The Eastern Orthodox Church?, is what is wrong with all the Orthodox churches, and the Russian Orthodox Church provides leadership for the Slavic branches of the Orthodox Church. But anyway, one can see the Orthodox Church is about as pagan as the Romish Church,
Catholic World News wrote:
Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, has given Pope Francis an icon of the Blessed Virgin Mary and a copy of his book, Freedom and Responsibility. Metropolitan Hilarion, the Russian Orthodox Church’s chief ecumenical officer, gave the items to Pope Francis during a March 20 audience.
excerpt from, Top News Stories -- CWS. Ah, all Hail Mary? (PDF).

There are a lot of false religions around the world besides the Big Three who call themselves Christian in this country, Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses (PDF).

"Since March 17, he's [Pope Francis] also had breakfast, lunch and dinner with the Orthodox representatives who came to Rome for his inauguration. Pope Francis is still living at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, the Vatican guesthouse where the Orthodox delegates also were staying.

"They all eat together and greet each other in the common dining room.

"Greek Orthodox Metropolitan Tarasios of Buenos Aires and South America was one of the delegates who shared meals and prayers with the new pope. In fact, he's been doing that since then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio attended his enthronement in Buenos Aires in 2001.

"When they first saw each other March 17, they embraced.

"I said to him, 'What have you done?' He said, 'Not I. They did it to me,' pointing to the cardinals," said the Orthodox leader, who was born in the United States."

Actually it is Romanian Orthodox, not Greek Orthodox. Just like in Serbia it is Serbian Orthodox.

Address by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew to Pope Francis:

Mar 21, 2013

"The unity of the Christian Churches is surely our foremost concern as one of the fundamental prerequisites for the credibility of our Christian witness in the eyes of those near and afar. In order to achieve this unity, we must continue the inaugurated theological dialogue so that we may jointly appreciate and approach the truth of faith, the experience of the saints, and the tradition of the first Christian millennium shared by East and West alike. It should be a dialogue of love and truth, in a spirit of humility, meekness, and honesty."

Perhaps it's dawning on Patriarch Bartholomew that for example, in Romania, a country that's 86% Greek Orthodox, there are 480 abortions for every 1,000 live births. Sanger's cultue of death is ravaging the East and West.

969 years of separation have been long enough.

I like your comments gentlemen, I think some extra material would help, such as What's So Wrong With The Eastern Orthodox Church? (Plenty ) and Wikipedia has an excellent article on the Great Schism, though this one was rather lengthy. Oh, as a side note, to see there is no unbroken lines of Popes, see the article on The Western Schism which is example of what nonsense The Pope and the Papacy is.

There are enough differences between the Romish and Eastern church to stop them from joining up, but as since the Romish Church is a non-Christian NGO and the Eastern Church is too closely tied governments to even have that title, they still can work together in charity works. They just need to stop pretending to be Christian.

By the way, nice hat. Peel off the robe and put a regular baseball cap on old Bart's cranium, and suddenly, he doesn't look so holy.
It's all an addiction to the pomp, glamour, and wealth. Take it all away, and the one true church becomes just another religion; false religion, that is.

Both of these religions are joined by graven images and thus idolatry.

Isa 44:9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?
11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.
18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand."

Oh boy. "Your holiness" excuse me while I go and puke. The Roman Catholic churches doctrines, dogmas, and rituals, are all anti-Bible, anti-God, anti-Christ, and fully anti-Christian. 1.2 billion people have entrusted their eternal security to a false religious system, and mere sinfilled men who claim to be Jesus Christ on Earth. They are addicted to the pomp and pagentry, and have allowed themselves to be fooled by the crafty lies.
The Roman Catholic church is Satans greatest masterpiece. Throughout its history, they have murdered an estimated 50 million people for standing strong on clear Biblical doctrines, and have/are sending billions to their eternal destruction.
The one true church? Unbroken apostolic succession? Nope, not according to the Bible. Why won't Roman Catholics read and study their Bibles to find out what God has to say before it's too late? Why do they so eagerly trust in mere men for their eternal salvation and security? I just don't get it.

In the joy and jubilation of Your election as the pastoral leader of Roman Catholic Christians throughout the world, we are communicating with Your Holiness in order to express to You and the devout faithful of Your blessed Church our wholehearted congratulations and sincerest salutations on this special day.

Permit us also, on this historic occasion, to convey our unfeigned wishes and fervent prayers that your papal tenure may prove to be a source of peace in our world of turmoil and division, a refuge and consolation for our Lord’s poor and suffering brothers and sisters, as well as a continuation of our journey toward reconciliation and consolidation of the dialogue for the unity of our Sister Churches.

May God grant Your Holiness many years of healthy and fruitful ministry to serve His people with Your distinctive humility, simplicity, and charity.

At the Ecumenical Patriarchate, on March 13th, 2013

Your Holiness’
beloved brother in Christ
