comment What parallel Russian / Slavonic - English prayer books for Orthodox are there?
There is what looks like a decent version at tinyurl.com/russian-english-svit. Some people have said the English translation leaves something to be desired, but it is decent, even if the Jordanville prayer book (tinyurl.com/jordanville-prayer-book) offers a better English translation. I am using the SVIT now.

Thank you. I've raised a note about improving the UX at the main meta, meta.stackexchange.com/questions/265961/…

@David, were you saying that there are too many possible answers, or that good answers would be too long for this format? I've searched, and I fail to see either condition remotely holding true in this particular "put on hold as too broad."

comment Is Roman Catholic reconciliation with the Orthodox likely (or possible)?
Ironically, read an Anglican who summarizes and cites Orthodox critiques of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a tradition which had strong Catholic opposition when it first appeared.

comment Is Roman Catholic reconciliation with the Orthodox likely (or possible)?
Theophilus asked me why in An Open Letter to Orthodoxy and Ecumenism why I state that a Sacred Heart icon in Byzantine attempt is offensive. First, it brings something foreign to Orthodoxy, and once foreign to Catholicism, into what is attempted and presented as Orthodox. It is slightly like one of those songs where adoration of Christ morphs into adoration of Krishna, or telling Catholics they all need to speak in tongues. And secondly, Orthodox are as offended by the Sacred Heart as Catholics originally were.

And, perhaps, look into the things Orthodox say about barriers to intercommunion. An Open Letter to Catholics on Orthodoxy and Ecumenism picks two major points where there are at least a dozen serious contenders; the criterion of selection was parsimony. And I might add what one Roman told me: Catholics view philosophy and culture as something that can be changed and updated as times change, while Orthodox view Orthodox philosophy and culture as something that cannot be quickly or drastically changed, in some sense like the flesh of the Incarnation.
