    Can someone supply me with a quotation from Paul Evdokimov's book Orthodoxy? It's only a few lines, from somewhere around page 35. I need the exact words used in the English edition.

    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I don't have that book, but I wanted to say, welcome to CF and to TAW!

    This subforum area isn't terribly active, so if you don't get your reply (or need it quickly) ... you might post in TAW.

    If no one here knows, I will try to find out for you.

    What is the gist of the quote, do they know what they are looking for?

    Thank you for your welcome.
    The gist of the quote is as follows:

    the Greeks often displayed great naivety in adopting an approach that while pragmatic was for that very reason inconsistent, and that their appeal to the pope in the West was a natural means to find an independent and external arbiter to obtain mediation, but it was done only to resolve a single particular difficulty, and when the situation changed they lost interest

    If you can find out for me, I will be very grateful.

    LOL, now you've got me wondering at the background info, because it doesn't sound quite right. But I'll sit back and wait, to see if Matt can find it. :)

    I will say this ... I've learned not to worry. Early on I did, when I would hear things that seemed contradictory or not right or whatever.

    After having chased many to their source or understanding - I have learned my worry was always misplaced. It can be worth knowing, in case someone else asks. But I have peace knowing that I need not fear anything anyone said and trusting the Church. :)
