Breathing with Both Lungs

Dear Editor: Nice article about “Mother” Church by Carol Glatz (Jan. 14). However – there is always a however – a minor correction for future editorial consideration.

It is not only the Orthodox who follow the Julian calendar and therefore celebrate Christmas on Jan. 7. Many Catholics of the Eastern Rite (the other lung of the Church) also use that calendar so what is most often mislabeled “orthodox” should really be called “Julian” calendar.

Thanks for taking note of this point of interest especially to Ukrainian Greek Catholics and others who might be reading The Tablet.
