Steps Toward Reunion

It has been my personal assertion (therefore, take it for what it's worth) that we will not probably reconcile Protestant denominations as a whole with the Church. In other words, don't go looking for a Lutheran-Catholic Rite to be promulgated anytime soon.

The Orthodox are a different story. The chances are good that they would come back as a group, but it would be nation by nation, rather than all the Orthodox at once.

The significance of this reaches two levels for me, at least. On the first level, at least, we aren't trying to spit on one another. On the second level, as the Orthodox give us more access to the East it allows us to work together as a force to counter militant Islam.
