Rorate Caeli: Many FI priests petitioning to be relieved of pontifical vows
#70
The Orthodox followed the Julian calender for millenia. Many amongst the Orthodox thought the new calender was simply in the name of a dubious ecumenism. The Julian Calender is and was a big deal to the Orthodox, at least some. Perhaps in and of itself the new calender is not "modernist" but amongst many Orthodox it was seen as a capitulation to what they see as an apostate West in the name of ecumenism. It was divisive because it now drove a wedge between their own, between those who followed the new and those that followed the old. Russians were so attached to the Julian calender that even the civil year prior to the revolution was reckoned by it. The Julian Calender is a big deal to quite a lot of Orthodox.
