    1. The author presents the distinction between Catholicism and Orthodoxy in relation to the authority of the Pope, while he remarks the similarities between them in terms of religious celebrations. In the rest of the article, the journalist transmits the testimony of an Orthodox priest and theologian, Ihor Kutache, originating from Ukraine and living in Canada. The latter mentions some features of Orthodox worship and ritual practices (as is the cases of the Adoration of the Ηoly Mary and the Celebration of Eucharist).

      His main focus is on the relation between Orthodox Church and Modernity. He underlines the openness of the Orthodox Church towards scientific knowledge, based on the allegorical and symbolic reading of the Bible Narrative of Creation. According to Ihor Kutache, the Orthodox Christianity is not in conflict with modern sciences considered as paths to the understanding of God’s wisdom manifested in world and nature. Moreover, he points out that the idea of the eternity of God ensures the stability of physical laws, which provides the scientific progress. Finally, he reports the vivid interest of the Orthodox Church in bioethical questions.
