Pope-envy from Constantinople
Okay, okay, after years of bearing an envy for the E. Orthodox "way" of conciliarist ecclesiastical governance among other things, I'm finally coming around to fully embracing Roman primacy and papalism. News like this both saddens me for the sake of the EOs and reaffirms in me my real allegiance to the Bishop of Rome. Papalism isn't so much superior to conciliarism, but neither is it inferior by any means.
