Moscow patriarchate moving closer to Rome, especially on 'new evangelization'
CWN - May 24, 2010
Vatican-watcher Sandro Magister of L'Espresso sees a strong convergence of opinion between the Vatican and the Moscow patriarchate on the need for a "new evangelization" in Europe. More generally, Magister notes a remarkable warming of relations between Moscow and Rome, and says, "The positive relationship that has been established between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Church of Rome is one of the most stunning achievements of Benedict XVI's pontificate."

Benedict XVI is a tremendous gift to the world- the Pope of Christian Unity!

There was never a hope of reunification with the orthodox until the Latin Church at least started to get its own house in order. Pope Benedict has taken the next step in that process.
