Recently, I came across a very interesting exchange between a Melkite Greek Catholic priest, Fr. Philip Kairallah and Fr. John Meyendorff from a 1986 St Vladimir’s Theological Quarterly Journal.
Fr. Philip’s article “The Ecumenical Vocation of the Melkite Church” received an initial response by Fr. John: “The Melkite Patriarchate: Paradoxes of a Vocation.” While dated, both articles give a good snapshot of things 25 years ago. While a few things have changed, much hasn’t.
For those interested, the articles can be read here.
