This Could be VERY Big News

The Byzantine Catholic Church (one of the Eastern Catholic Churches) has requested a "dual unity" of full communion with both Rome and Constantinople (i.e., the Pope and the Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople) and the Patriarch has responded favorably.

Many are hailing the decision as a breakthrough in Catholic / Orthodox relations that could eventually lead to full communion.

Lord may it be so! People of God - pray for this to happen.
