Eastern churches
St Nicholas Cathedral in Oradea Mare, Romania given back to the Romanian Catholic Church
The church of our hero Bishop John-Michael (Botean) — search the blog for more on him. Righting a wrong done by the Communists. The Romanian Catholics seem latinised though. At least they’re not modern.

Learnt from Recognised Internet Authority™ Stuart Koehl that the Romanian Catholics were a substantial part (20 per cent) of the pre-World War II Romanian people and by the 1930s relations with the Orthodox majority were friendly: the two priests in a village would hear each other’s wives’ confessions. Communism ruined all that.
