CWN Editor's Note: Montenegro (map) is a southeastern European nation of 600,000 that is 72% Orthodox, 16% Muslim, and 3% Catholic. Both the Ecumenical Patriarch, who holds a primacy of honor in Eastern Orthodoxy, and the Russian Orthodox Church oppose recognition of the Montenegrin Orthodox Church—a body that broke away from the Serbian Orthodox Church in 1993 and has gained the support of President Milo Dukanović.
