As a Catholic, when I refer to the Catholic Church I mean, exclusively, what you would refer to as the Roman Catholic Church. I make no apologies for that, no should I or any other Catholic.
Do I consider the Orthodox churches one, holy, catholic and apostolic? I would certainly accept them as apostolic, which is more than can be said for Protestantism.
I would hope the other three would flow from being apostolic, but what does being one mean for the Orthodox? A loose federation?

I will be attending church tomorrow at my local Greek Orthodox church. I will not be allowed to take the Eucharist there because the Orthodox churches do not allow Catholics to take it in their churches, even though the Catholic church allows an Orthodox Christian to take communion in a Catholic service because we both believe in the actual presence.
Does this mean the Orthodox are one, holy, catholic and apostolic but Catholics are not.
It is 11pm where I am now so I may not reply for a while. I have prayers and meditation to do before bed.
