Towards Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox Unity

This is a very good development.

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- After centuries of allowing themselves to grow apart, Roman Catholics and Greek Orthodox must seek forgiveness and learn to work together for the good of the world, said Pope Benedict XVI and Orthodox Archbishop Christodoulos of Athens and all Greece.

The pope formally welcomed the primate of the Orthodox Church of Greece to the Vatican Dec. 14, solemnly signing with him a commitment to preaching the Gospel together and to working for full communion.

Here is an insightful interview with Monsignor Dimitrios Salachas of the Greek-Catholic Apostolic Exarchy of Athens by Zenit News Agency.
