Default Re: What is the Catholic view of Symeon the New Theologian??

St. Stymeon the New Theologian is highly revered and his works are closely studied in the Eastern/Byzantine Catholic tradition(s). I'm pretty sure his feast day is also celebrated in some of the Byzantine Catholic Churches, although I don't know the date of his feast. The late Fr. George Maloney, S.J., a Russian Catholic priest, was heavily influenced by the writings of St. Symeon.

While Rome may have some hesitations about this great saint, the Catholic East certainly does not.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me.
