Pope: What's the role of ecumenism in the New Evangelization?

2012-11-15

BENEDICT XVI
“As you know the Council Fathers tried to emphasize the close link between the task of evangelizing and overcoming the divisions among Christians.”


When it comes to ecumenical dialogue,  the Pope said the crisis of faith seen in many countries,  cannot be ignored. He said spiritual poverty is also a challenge.

He then added that division, goes against the will of Jesus, who repeatedly prayed for unity, even among his own disciples.

The pope said the Year of Faith should mark a breakthrough in ecumenism. He called on them to seek unity, but also to remember that such a great task, cannot be achieved without the help of a higher power.
