      If the Pope is apologizing for what happened in 1204 in Constantinople, and
      for the Inquisition of the western Middle Ages and for the Roman part of
      1054, for not helping the Christian East in 1439, and whatever else, he is
      already apologizing for things the Roman Catholic Church as sponsored, but
      over which he had not control of course. As to the Serbian massacres, he
      was already a Roman Catholic clergyman. The Balamand Statement of 1993
      which he engineered does not suggest he feels overly sympathetic to Orthodox
      Churches. But let us remember that Patriarchs of Constantinople have
      already referred to the Pope as "Our Elder Brother," and the Eastern and
      Western Churches have called themselves the 'two lungs of the Church.' So
      let us watch warily to see what really happens. We owe them Christian love,
      but we dare not give them our submission.

      As to what he will really say on Sunday, why don't we just wait to see what
      it is?
