One of the main topics discussed in the dialogue was Eucharistic intercommunion between the two. My question is: How would this be theologically possible?
“On the first day, the discussion was on Eucharistic intercommunion, where Archbishop Kawak gave a short presentation about the common declaration signed by Rome and the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch.”
Intercommunion suggest mutual recognition of beliefs. Last I checked the OO don’t agree to papal infallibility, etc.
I understand that in the Middle East there is intercommunion in certain instances between the EO-OO, but, the two are much closer theologically than the EO-RC or OO-RC.
I’m just curious from the OO perspective how intercommunion with Roman Catholics is justified.
