Benedict: Take Joy in the Good of our Separated Brethren
Scriptorium,
Maybe you -- or SaintSebastian, if he sees this thread -- can explain what is meant when it's said that there's an "imperfect communion" between the Catholic Church and the Eastern schismatic sect.  They are explicitly described as "wounded" "true particular Churches" of "the universal Church/single Church of Christ."  If they are not "true Churches" of Christ's Church, then what are they Churches of?  There is not a "Church" other than the Church, is there?  And how does this not somehow become a federation of communities, divided by faith and government, but united by an invisible bond?

No one's answered that question, and I can show you an article or two (from EWTN) which pretty much admit what I've described above, but then go on to say that further study needs to be done.
