He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Letting off Ecumenical Steam

I get so tired of the Latinist folks who profess to desire ecumenism with the Orthodox but continue to prattle on about defined doctrines, canonical validity, and such. The plain fact is that they don't understand Orthodoxy. If there's such a thing as a Latinist mindset, is its source to be found in the filioque?

Ad Orientem mentioned the Traditional Anglican Communion's talks with Old Rome. I had heard some time ago that TAC was looking for a Uniat-style relationship. Then again, maybe they need to trade in that jalopy for a wholly new model.
