An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
Much ado about nothing. The devil appears to be in the details and it seems to me - based on this story - that nothing has changed at all. The primacy of the Patriarch of Rome has ALWAYS been recognized, even in ecumenical council, but what exactly that means is the rub of the matter. Still is, apparently.
So headlines that read "Vatican-Orthodox agree pope has primacy" represents breaking news that is like 1,900 years old.
