Martin, Malachi B.
March 1979
National Review;3/16/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 11, p362
The article discusses the progress of Christian ecumenical movement in Western Europe and U.S. It explains that ecumenism between the Catholic Church of Rome and the various Protestant churches in Europe and the U.S. is a distant possibility. But there is a good chance that the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church both in Greece and in Russia could forge a real ecumenism. It discusses the factors that could lead to real ecumenism between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church.
