James Likoudis: Former Greek Orthodox

March 19, 1999 No Comments

Jim was baptized and reared in the Greek Orthodox Church, a child of Greek immigrants. Very early he was confronted by the problem of both the Orthodox and the Catholic claiming to be the true Church. In his studies he discovered that in the first 1,000 years of the Church a primacy of honor as well as jurisdiction of the Bishop of Rome, contrary to current Orthodox teaching, was recognized by the entire Church, both East and West. This realization brought Jim to come into full-communion with the successor of St. Peter in Rome. Jim has written the book: “Ending the Byzantine Greek Schism”.
