      In all the years I was Roman Catholic before discovering Orthodox
      Christianity, I never heard of any Forgiveness service at all. So that is
      why I'm simply quite skeptical about this grand gesture Pope John Paul II
      and some R. C. leaders elsewhere is making. It seems to me he can want
      nothing more than to show that he can do things that look Orthodox/orthodox
      too. This gesture certainly has a Papist hook in it somehow. And let there
      be no doubt, any Orthodox leader who casts doubt on the Pope's intentions
      will certainly be stoned for ingratitude and 'lacking love.'
