The Myth of Uniatism

Readers who have consulted our recent post on Metropolitan Hilarion's astonishing remarks on the integrity of a Jesuit Holy Father, in which the familiar and unfounded complaints about the Ukrainian Catholic Church's very existence are also rehearsed, may be interested in our chairman's reflections on the challenges and misrepresentation faced by members of the Ordinariate for Catholics with Anglican Patrimony - Anglican "Uniates"?, in a post dated 8th April 2012.

Of particular interest is the quotation, at length, from Fr Robert Taft SJ on the initiative for Catholic unity coming from the Orthodox Ruthenian side as a means of preserving Orthodoxy, not out of alleged proselytism and Latinisation of Byzantines by activists of the "Roman" Catholic Church.
