In 1869 - 1870, the Twentieth Ecumenical Council was held in the Vatican.
The Twentieth Ecumenical Council also named Council of Vatican I was summoned by Pius IX.
The Twentieth Ecumenical Council (First Vatican Council) met 8 December, 1869, and lasted till 18 July, 1870, when it was adjourned with its agenda unfinished.
803 attended: 6 archbishop-princes, 49 cardinals, 11 patriarchs, 680 archbishops and bishops, 28 abbots, 29 generals of orders, in all 803.

Accomplishments are:

  • Defined important canons relating to the Faith and the constitution of the Church
  • Decreed the infallibility of the Pope when speaking ex cathedra, i.e. when as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church.

His Beatitude, the Regretted, Gregorios II, Patriarch / Batriyark of the cities of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem, of Cilicia, Syria, Iberia, Arabia Mesopotamia, Pentapolis, Ethiopia, of all of Egypt and the entire East, Father of Fathers, Pastor of Pastors, Bishop of Bishops, the Thirteenth of The Holy Apostles

His Beatitude, the Regretted, Gregorios II, Patriarch / Batriyark of the cities of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem, of Cilicia, Syria, Iberia, Arabia Mesopotamia, Pentapolis, Ethiopia, of all of Egypt and the entire East, Father of Fathers, Pastor of Pastors, Bishop of Bishops, the Thirteenth of The Holy Apostles reigned from 1864 to 1897. His Beatitude, the Regretted, Gregorios II, Patriarch / Batriyark of the cities of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem, of Cilicia, Syria, Iberia, Arabia Mesopotamia, Pentapolis, Ethiopia, of all of Egypt and the entire East, Father of Fathers, Pastor of Pastors, Bishop of Bishops, the Thirteenth of The Holy Apostles was a significant voice.

His Beatitude, the Regretted, Gregorios II, Patriarch / Batriyark took a strong stand against the declaration of papal infallibility at the First Vatican Council in 1870. Patriarch Gregorios II spoke clearly to his affirmation of the fullness of power enjoyed by the Petrine Office. Also, Patriarch Gregorios II was very concerned that the exercise of papal powers be "in harmony with the rights of the other Patriarchal Sees."

View of the Post-Schism Councils: Must we Eastern Catholics consider the post-schism General Councils of the Roman Church Ecumenical like the Seven of the First Millennium?

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
