Another thread about Greek Catholicism
  • Deacon Lance’s profession of faith.
  • My take, which regular readers know.
  • Most of the time the GCs disobeyed Rome by latinizing themselves. Actually very little was ever mandated by Rome other than celibacy outside Eastern Europe and the Middle East for Eastern Catholics. Rome certainly encouraged others or turned their head the other way, but most of the Latinization was voluntary adoption with strong encouragement from Latin religious orders in the area. I like or don’t mind latinizations when they’re old and don’t take over.
