An interesting debate has been occuring over at Monachos on our doctrine of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception. Tied into this debate is the difference between Catholic and Orthodox conceptions of the Fall and the existence and nature of Original Sin. All this implies that inviting the Orthodox to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is at best asking them to opt for a position on what is for them a theolegoumena or at worst an invitation to heresy (for them). Not an easy hurdle to overcome but she who gave birth to the Saviour can through His Power overcome any obstacle.
