Eastern Orthodoxy

There may not be an Eastern Orthodox profession of faith that denies any Catholic doctrine, but that does not mean that the rejection of papal infallibility is not an official position of Eastern Orthodoxy. There are many official positions of the Catholic Church (such as the invalidity of Anglican orders) that are not explicitly detailed in any Creed, but that does not make them any less a part of Catholic doctrine.

Like many others on this forum, I do not see the Novus Ordo as a very good indicator of the mind of the Church. Thus, what goes on in Novus Ordo parishes has very little impact on my thoughts concerning the matter.
