Orthodox Posters?
#35
Thanks again, Guac, Melk, Ptoch and others for helping me understand.

Guac: "bending the norm for pastoral reasons" sounds a LOT like VII, no?
Melk: Your avatar has the guy I was rooting for for pope (guy on the left. I know, he's not a cardinal, but stranger things have happened . . . ). Your answer concerning divorce vs/=annulment, Guacamole's concerning "bending rules for pastoral reasons" as well as the issue of papal primacy, and Saint Sebastian's comment on OE 'fluctuations' all seem to suggest a couple of things to me:

1. It suggests JPII's "two lungs" theory.
2. It suggests that some in the Catholic Church may well be deliberately positioning itself for a future reunification with the OE, in the sense of gradually restructuring how papal primacy is exercised (not the same as redefining, but restructuring the processes) and how membership is defined. Already Benedict XVI had basically stated that the Church established by Our Lord on earth was the Catholic Church, including in that term the Eastern Orthodox Church because of the validity of their sacraments.
3. It suggests that the differences are more temperamental than essential, as far as Rome sees the "essentials".

In the end, I think that demographic changes will require more practical arrangements among all Christian groups that celebrate valid sacraments, which means trads of all stripes and the Eastern Orthodox.
