A "first copy" of our new book was received by the Pope as a very special Easter Gift!
Pope Francis is calling for "conversion of the papacy" (Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium 11/25/13). Pope St. John Paul II asked for help in finding "a way of exercising the primacy...open to a new situation" and Blessed Pope Paul VI clearly stated, "the pope - as we all know - is undoubtedly the gravest obstacle in the path of ecumenism" (1967, Vatican Council II)...our book reveals how these statements along with the annual "MIRACLE OF THE HOLY FIRE" in Jerusalem & current messages from Our Lady of Soufanieh are cause for UNITY of the Catholic Church ......The FACTS of our "Common Faith" will astound You!......
Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew know the disastrous scandal of division and lack of Eucharistic communion which exists is a shameful scourge that both popes and patriarchs will answer for when they stand before the Great judgment Seat of Christ! After nearly a thousand years of schism, there is no doubt that it is not only the greatest but also the most superfluous evil in all of Christendom! And, for East & West not to admit they are equally responsible for keeping the Body of Christ separated is criminal.
Sadly, exact reasons for division remain obscure to a majority of the faithful; even members of the clergy remain comfortable in their faith rather than question, even the possibility, of laying aside wrongful assumptions and supporting historical truth! Our book examines centuries of seemingly insurmountable legalisms and innovations promulgated in the West and exposes suspicions and hatred that is shamefully harbored by many in the East. All of which, disastrously, keep the Body of Christ separated!
East & West, TOGETHER, are the ONE CATHOLIC CHURCH founded by Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ! They both profess Seven Sacraments, honour the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints, possess the Evidence of History, have unbroken Apostolic Succession from Peter and The Twelve, codified the Bible and maintain a constant Moral Teaching for the World!
CONFIDENTLY, with prayers from both Constantinople & The Vatican, our book becomes a sincere plea on behalf of Clergy & Faithful alike, to His Holiness Pope Francis, and to Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, His All-Holiness Bartholomew I, to heal the great tear of separation...and restore the UNITY of the ONE CATHOLIC CHURCH...to fulfill the work of the "New Evangelization"...to fulfill the mandate of Christ, that "all may be ONE" and to complete the quest of Blessed Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I that they began on the banks of the Jordan River in Jerusalem in 1964.
