Because we belong both to the Christian East and West...

The schism between Catholicism and Orthodoxy remains a tragic reality of Christianity in the twentieth century and has been deeply felt in Ukraine: “Because we belong both to the Christian East and West, the schism goes through our whole being. Unfortunately, for the thousand years of the schism, we must state that the Roman Catholic Church has learned to cope without the Orthodox Church, just like the Orthodox Church has done so without the Roman Catholic Church. Each of them lives its life without needing the other. But we Greek Catholics need both the Christian East and West; the desire to find ways to unity has disappeared from our Church.”
