Lines of Apostolic Succession

- The Apostolic Succession from Archbishop George Bussmann (abbreviated)
Metropolitan Archbshop David Leon Cooper has Vatican succession as well as multiple Eastern Orthodox lines of succession. (Any one of which is considered valid.)
The answer is best expressed in Papal utterances regarding the Orthodox, which call us:
". . . Orthodox brothers of the Catholic faith which by God's grace we share."
Pope John Paul also refers to the Orthodox churches as ". . . sister Catholic churches . . ."
Note: It is the Vatican that has said that the Orthodox share the Catholic Faith and are separated sister Catholic Churches. The Envoy Magazine article about Archbishop Cooper is misleading. The terms Orthodox Catholic and Orthodox Christian are synonymous. There are independent Western Rite Orthodox jurisdictions all over the world. Archbishop Cooper's Order does NOT have gay or women priests.
