Pope Francis: Divisions among Christians are “a heavy obstacle”

2014-03-07

The secretary general for the World Council of Churches, Norwegian Reverend Olav Fykse Tveit, thanked Pope Francis for his welcome at the Vatican.

OLAV FYKSE TVEIT
"We meet with you as colleagues from the World Council for Churches, but more than that, we meet with you as a brother in Christ. So thank you for receiving us.”

This institution is a network of Churches from all over the world that strives for the unity of Christians. Though the Catholic Church is not one of its members, Pope Francis thanked them their work all the same. He added that division among Christians hinders the spreading of the Gospel.

POPE FRANCIS
"Since its beginnings, the World Council of Churches has given a great contribution in forming the sensibility of all Christians on the fact that our divisions are a heavy obstacle.”

At the end of the meeting, the Reverend Fykse Tveit gave the Pope a little model that symbolize the walls that ecumenical dialogue has to overcome.

"Hopefully, your visit can contribute to remove this walls.”

Pope Francis explained that to reach unity, humble prayer is always helpful, as well as the discernment to know how serve humanity in all its spiritual and material needs.
