 Fatima Perspectives - Perspective No. 301
On October 14, 2002 CWNews.com reported that "At the conclusion of a visit to the Vatican by the Romanian Orthodox Patriarch Teoctist, Pope John Paul II emphasized the commitment of the Catholic Church to the cause of Christian unity.
No less than John Paul II himself declared during Teoctist’s visit that, far from seeking converts among the Orthodox, "the Catholic Church has always tried to sustain and help the mission of the Orthodox churches in the lands of their origin." Is this the conversion of Russia prophesied by Our Lady of Fatima?
The current state of affairs in Russia should show any reasonable person just how far removed the current "ecumenical" attitude toward the Orthodox is from the traditional teaching of the Church, and from what the Mother of God Herself called for at Fatima.

Some 136 religious and cultural leaders protested against this "defiance of the no-confidence vote of the faithful that made [Teoctist] step down" (Rompres, 10 April 1990), but the Synod opted for continuity in the face of political change and acknowledged the views of the other Orthodox Churches, which went on recognizing Teoctist as patriarch.
The document was described variously by defenders of Teoctist as a concoction and an attempt by the Securitate to frame him ("SEIA Newsletter," 24 January 2001), but the information contained in one archive has been confirmed by documents found in other archives.
Days after Teoctist's infamous letter hit the press and Ceausescu was deposed, the synod denounced the former "dictatorship" and reiterated its support for the new leaders.

 Analysis: Papal deeds speak louder
Two days later, Patriarch Teoctist of the Romanian Orthodox church arrived in Rome for the start of a weeklong visit, reciprocating the pope’s May 7-9, 1999, visit to Bucharest.
John Paul welcomed Teoctist to the public Mass of thanksgiving for the canonization of Opus Dei founder Josemaria Escriva Oct. 6, standing to embrace him in brotherly fashion before a crowd of 200,000, then ensuring that Teoctist was seated in an exact duplicate of the papal throne.
The pope’s repeated gestures of humility and fraternity, always careful to treat Teoctist like an ecclesiastical equal, were designed to assuage Orthodox fears about a Roman “imperial papacy.” In that sense, John Paul’s conduct reflected a reformed papacy that Catholic theological language is not yet able to describe.
