Dear brother Milliardo,
I can see where you are coming from since I used to be outside of the Catholic Communion. On that side of the Tiber, I thought the Pope could do anything he wants, whenever he wants, wherever he wants, as he pleases. Thus, any perceived lessening of such an excessive position (and excessively misunderstood, I might add) would seem like a victory for Orthodoxy. After reading commentaries from the Fathers of the Vatican Council themselves, though, I finally dispensed myself of such misconceptions about the papacy and came into Catholic communion (though certainly not for that reason alone).
Initially, I thought your post was triumphalistic, but then I realized that Orthodox really do have a different understanding of the papacy than the Catholic Church itself has. I think that is sad (for it perpetuates the disunity). I believe what will happen eventually is that the Orthodox will dispel their MISconceptions about the papacy, and that will lead to reunion. But if the Orthodox interpret the hoped-for common understanding as Rome changing its position (instead of the Orthodox finally accepting the papacy for what it ACTUALLY is, and not their own misconception of it), then I say let them have their day.
