There remains a twofold goal for Eastern Catholics. First, to restore and appropriate their own heritage for the spiritual health of their own faith in Jesus Christ and second to do this as a service to all Christian believers for the sake of the health of the universal church. Pope John Paul II has done an extremely important service to the universal church in pointing to the Light of the East.
