Orthodox faithful split on reconciliation with Rome
November 10, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: The world’s Orthodox believers are almost evenly split on whether or not it is desirable to reconcile with the Catholic Church, according to a new international study by Pew Research. Among survey respondents, 35% favored reconciliation with Rome, 31% opposed it, and 38% were undecided or declined to answer.
The survey found broad support among Orthodox believers for the married priesthood, and opposition to the ordination of women as priests.
