Sandro Magister: One the Embrace, Many the Divisions
The encounter between Francis and Bartholomew at the basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. But there's rupture between the Greek Orthodox patriarchs of Jerusalem and Antioch. And open conflict between Constantinople and Moscow, on the question of primacy. The anti-papal sentiment of Eastern Christians

Living Liberalism

Catholics have adopted the liberal viewpoint regarding reason.

An accurate narrative of what happened? Or was there some "coercion" involved in so far as permission was withdrawn? (That is to say, reasons that did not fully persuade were not given before such action was taken, and not everyone was satisfied with the outcome.)
