Warsaw, May 25, 2006 - Above, Benedict XVI and Schismatic bishop Jeremiasz Anchismuk kiss as part of a religious ceremony carried out by Catholics, Schismatics and Protestants that took place in the Lutheran temple of that city.
The Canon Law of 1917 severely condemned as suspect of heresy persons who participate in religious ceremonies with heretics - communicatio in sacris -
(Canons 1258, 2259, 2261, 2315, 2316, 2338, par. 3).
