Quote of the day...

The Orthodox Churches are a different matter. ‘The Eucharist,’ the Pope writes, ‘objectively creates a powerful bond of unity between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches, which have preserved the authentic and integral nature of the eucharistic mystery.’ There is a sense in which Sacramentum Caritatis can be read as an apology to the Orthodox for the liturgical excesses that followed Vatican II, and a promise that they will not recur.

From the Spectator's excellent article "The Pope's anti-liberal Revolution," an article well worth a read in its entirety.
