Rome should not require anything more on this point than was found in the formularies and practice of the first millennium. When, during the Pope’s visit to St. George’s Cathedral in Phanar, on July 25, 1967, Patriarch Athenagoras spoke of the Pope as “the successor of Peter, the first in honor among us, the one who presides over the community of love”, “the words of this great Church leader conveyed the substance of what had been said about the primacy during the first millenium, and Rome should not ask for anything more.”

Cardinal Ratzinger
