Melkites bridge East and West, Vatican cardinal says

September 03, 2010

The Melkite Catholic Church should act as a bridge between Eastern and Western Christianity, the prefect of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches said.

Speaking during the Divine Liturgy at a church in Cordoba, Argentina—where he was joined by the visiting Melkite Patriarch of Antioch, Gregory III Laham—Cardinal Leonardo Sandri said that Melkites hold a strategic place because “are very rooted in the Eastern world but they are also traditionally united to the Petrine See.”
