Orthodox and Catholics sharing communion

Pigs are flying my friends pigs are flying. I guess after the lifting of all those excommunications in the 60s it sort of does make sense. But it does seem very strange indeed.

Timisoara , May. 27, 2008 ( - A Romanian Orthodox bishop has shared Communion with Catholics, causing a sensation in a country where Byzantine Catholics and Orthodox have a history of tense relations.

At the consecration of the Queen of Peace parish church in Timisoara on May 25, Orthodox Metropolitan Nicolae Corneanu of Banat asked to share Communion. The Orthodox metropolitan approached the altar and received the Eucharist from his own hand.
