Вечная память.

"Russian Orthodox Church in Union with Rome." So a Russian Catholic (not an ethnic Russian; most aren't) wrote to me. I love it. Fits my experiences getting to know Russian Catholics, at St. Michael's in Manhattan and meeting and corresponding with the late, great Fr. Serge (Keleher). Works for good Catholics who are liturgically, etc. Orthodox (most Greek Catholics aren't; they're their own thing), since "Orthodox in communion with Rome" has come to mean an arrogant person who thinks he is better than either church, thumbing his nose at the magisterium and looking down on conservative Latin Catholics yet not becoming Orthodox.
