Ecumenism: Complete Union with the Church

Here’s a unique and honest quote that many tend to neglect when discussing the challenges of ecumenism between the Roman Catholic Church and other Christian faiths:

“The goal of the ecumenical movement is complete visible union with one Christ and with Peter in one Church. We must cooperate and grow together.”

Father Hermann Geissler, Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith

Father Geissler affirmed that the Pope is called to promote unity in the Church and world. “He is the chief shepherd, he cannot do otherwise.  Unity is built on two pillars, love and truth,” the priest added.  (ZENIT)
