How is this possible? By use of the little known avenue of using an Orthodox bishop that will help you. Remember, all Orthodox are considered to be Catholic by Rome.
In Papal utterances regarding the Orthodox, we are called ". . . Orthodox brothers of the Catholic faith which by God's grace we share."
Pope John Paul refers to the Orthodox churches as ". . . sister Catholic churches . . ."
Many people have forgotten that the Orthodox are part of the "one, holy, catholic and apostolic church." Here is an Orthodox Catholic bishop that will help you:
Note: It is the Vatican that has said that the Orthodox share the Catholic Faith and are separated sister Catholic Churches. The Envoy Magizine article about Archbishop Cooper is misleading. The terms Orthodox Catholic and Orthodox Christian are synonomous. There are independent Western Rite Orthodox jurisdictions all over the world. Archbishop Cooper's Order does NOT have gay or women priests.
"Serious couples will call by telephone and speak with the Archbishop directly. No text messages, please."
