June 10, 2017 the Pan Orthodox of St. Spyridon in Trujillo Alto, PR community were received into the Catholic Church as a Greco Catholic Byzantine community under the “Omophorion” (jurisdiction) of the Latin Archbishop, Metropolitan Roberto González, O.F.M..

Has there been any other English language coverage of this event? Has there been an Orthodox response?

A very intemperate, indeed, vindictive and hateful respone!

Dear Father,

Please share that response if it was meant to be of a public nature. I personally am quite shocked at the news, having exchanged communication with Father Peter a few times in the past. Amongst other things, we discussed our shared Albanian heritage.

All the same, one should not expect congratulations to be forthcoming from the East. Without a proper release from the Orthodox Metropolitan of Mexico, this action does not contribute in any positive way toward a reconciliation between the Eastern and Western churches.
