Ecclesiastical Provincialism

If there is one area at which the Orthodox and Roman Catholics can seem to agree, it's that reality should be defined by extreme ecclesiastical provincialism. Various Traditionalist Catholic sites treat the plight of Middle Eastern Christians as concerning only the assortment of churches in communion with Rome. The Orthodox, meanwhile, often refuse to acknowledge there is any Catholic presence.

At times like these I simply pray: Ineffable God, save me from your Church.
