Still there...Irish Melkite said:And I believe that you and I previously discussed, in the open fora there, the erroneous statement on one of the site's library pages that the EP and the Pope concelebrated at St Peter's - an error that I (and I believe also you) called to their attention via PM, receiving assurance that it would be corrected. Last I looked, not long ago, the misinformation was still there - and it's been a long time (couple of years) since the exchange.
" ...and in 1995, Pope John Paul II and Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople concelebrated the Eucharist together."
Reference: Eastern Orthodoxy
One wonders at the level of knowledge of the authors of these articles. Anybody with even a limited knowledge of the East would know that the sky would have fallen in if the Patriarch concelebrated the Eucharist with the Pope. He would have been repudiated by 99% of the Orthodox world and the monks of Athos would have written 12 tomes anathematizing him.
PS to our Mod: I still haven't grasped the rules about links. On CAF it was always expected that we would back up a statement like the above with a relevant link. Is that OK here?
