    Today (June 2) NY Times has an article about Pope Francis visit to Romania. Much of the article discussed the position of the churches in the country. The vast majority are Romanian Orthodox, but there is a significant Catholic minority. In the article, the Catholics are described as Greek Catholics, not Roman Catholics. What is the distinction if any between these terms in the case of Romanian Catholics, who are not Greek (mostly Hungarian ethnicity in Transylvania)?
