These days we see lot of so-called Ecumenical

the Apostolic Churches, but now it is wider and
become for all Christians.
What I understand, Ecumenism means work together
with accepting all the difference for the better

correct me if I am.
But what acutely happening in this so-called

I appreciate the Catholic Churches, they do not
entertain these sort of activities much comparing
to the Jacobite / Orthodox Church.
Who is to be blamed? Ordinary believers or the
