A local Church cannot be truly whole if it is not aware of its wealth. The article attempts to define a perspective on the local Churches in Central and Eastern Europe as a perichoresis of traditions and mentalities: this means a wealth of personal knowledge, sensitivity or openness towards the Christian East as well as for the developments in Western Europe. This Central European experience manifests itself in the confrontation with the issues of the global strategy of Church direction in the coming years. Central Europe does not have the ambition to become the leading intellectual light of Catholicism, but a sensitive interpreter and seismograph of European trends.
