June 13, 2014 Length: 33:21
In this final episode of Reflection 15, Fr. John discusses the thirteenth-century popes Innocent III and Gregory IX, showing the close connection between their efforts to advance papal supremacy on the one hand and direct crusades against the Orthodox on the other. He concludes the reflection by noting the recent meeting of Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew and placing it within the context of centuries of cultural division between east and west.
"My husband and I are catechumens at a Greek Orthodox Church and hope to join this year. We absolutely love Ancient Faith Radio because it has really helped us understand and learn about the Faith of the Apostles, and it has been a blessing! Thank you!"
