Events Today in Church History

    On this date thirty four years ago, on the eve of closing the Second Vatican Council, His Holiness Pope Paul VI met with Eastern Orthodox Patriarch Athenagoras and the two agreed to both lift the mutual excommunication interdicts placed on each back in 1054 when the Great Schism of East and West broke wide open, estranging the two for nearly a millennium. Recently, through his papal visits and overtures to all branches of the Orthodox Church, Pope John Paul II has improved relations in hopes of one day once again becoming one.
